The Big Team

Our staff are full time employees, many of whom are enrolled in an ABA graduate program. Also, in order to be system-wide, the CABAS® approach is applied to the whole organization. Therapists are taught to be scientists, decision-makers and leaders. All are working through a set of individualized modules set up by Columbia University. BIG therapists receive intensive training, and their skills are assessed on an ongoing basis to ensure that standards are maintained. Staff training is an integral part of the CABAS® system, which believes that investing in the staff is investing in the child’s future. CABAS® research has shown a direct correlation between the expertise of the instructional personnel and the eventual outcome for children.
