The four pillars of our clinical approach lead to great outcomes—for our clients, our team and our community.

We believe that what’s good for our clients is also good for our therapists. We keep our caseloads small to ensure quality care, and also to keep our therapists performing at their best—and promote time for professional growth and development. We know that many clinicians want more opportunities for professional development (Blydenberg and Diller, 2016), and it’s our goal to meet and exceed this expectation to promote clinical excellence.

Each of our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) works with an average of 8 clients at a time, meaning they can be more intimately involved in each child’s treatment.

AIM treatment teams include a BCBA and 3–4 highly trained Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs), as well as senior leadership who review each plan on a regular basis.

Standards are meant to be exceeded. The quality and quantity of support we provide should go beyond standards—both for our clients and our clinicians.

Our BCBAs engage in each child’s journey above and beyond the industry’s practice guidelines. BCBAs spend 3–6 hours on average with each child to monitor progress and offer clients high quality individualized care.

Through both individual and group trainings and guidance on a range of topics including daily living skills, social skills, school supports and more. We make sure parents have the knowledge they need to reinforce what their children learn at AIM.

We provide resources to all parents through blogs, online and in-person trainings and workshops and other channels to ensure they can access the information they need when they need it.

At AIM we are committed to happy therapists because we are committed to happy kids. Our industry-leading staff retention comes from treating our therapists with all the care and respect we expect them to show to our clients.

We understand that consistency is key, which is why we work so hard to maintain our 98% per month retention—well above industry average. Clients benefit from a consistent team, and therapists benefit from a great working environment.

Through thoughtful benefits programs, a supportive culture, and emphasis on mindful self-care, we ensure that our therapists are at their best each day with every child.

We invest more in our clinicians’ professional development than anyone else in the industry. Our extensive and continuous opportunities for growth and advancement mean our therapists and BCBAs are true leaders in the field of ABA.

Through weekly Journal Clubs, AIM U, and partnerships with leading research universities, our BCBAs are equipped with the latest research in the field.

AIM therapists are highly trained—well above industry standard. We invest heavily in our RBTs through our 3-week proprietary initial training and our AIM Fellowship program.

We believe our commitment to our clients, our community and our AIM team, coupled with the quality of services we provide, puts us in a class all our own and gives the kids we serve—and our therapists—more opportunities to excel.

AIM Journal Club

Better research starts with better knowledge.

An integral part of bringing the best care to our clients is staying up to date on the latest research. In 2019–2020, we read 24 articles in our AIM Journal Club, which is modeled after the research of Parsons and Reid (2011) and Sarno (2013).

  • Each month 3–4 peer-reviewed journal articles are selected for BCBAs to read and discuss.
  • Articles span education, applied behavior analysis, organizational behavior management and psychology.
  • Small groups meet across the organization virtually to engage in a semi-structured discussion of the article and how the article could apply to clinical work at AIM.

AIM U

Better knowledge starts with an informed perspective.

AIM U is our hub for internal professional development—a powerful resource that sets us apart from others in the industry. We believe the best clinicians are always learning, so we offer intensive courses on topics they might not otherwise encounter in their own studies.

In this short primer, BCBAs will receive an introduction to other childhood diagnoses, including intellectual disability, oppositional defiant disorder and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Focused attention will be placed on formal, norm-referenced assessments for practicing BCBAs. Specific attention will be devoted to the conceptualization and construction of assessments and interpretation of results.

This four-week course will explore developmental milestones for children age 4 to 7 years old. Topics will include physical, language, cognitive and social and emotional milestones.

This series focuses on a variety of intervention packages classified as Naturalistic Developmental Behavioral Interventions (NDBIs). Attendees will learn about core concepts and ways to incorporate these strategies into clinical practice.
