Fee For Service

Bethesda offers a range of clinical services to assist children/youth in developing new skills. Individualized treatment plans are collaboratively developed with individuals and/or their caregivers to promote growth, independence, and an improved quality of life.

If you would like to learn more about any of the following services, please request a call

Behavioural Services

Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is an intervention based on the science of learning and behaviour.  Clinicians work with individuals and their families to identify goals to increase behaviours/skills that are important to them and decrease behaviour that interferes with skill development and day-to-day functioning.  ABA therapy can help increase a child/youth’s social communication, teach new skills and increase their independence.  ABA involves designing, implementing and monitoring interventions that are supervised by a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA).

* To access the following services, a Clinical Treatment Plan is required.  To arrange a Clinical Treatment Plan, please request a call or email serviceinfo@bethesdaservices.com 

Early Intensive Behavioural Intervention (EIBI)

The goal of intensive, comprehensive intervention is to increase a child’s rate of learning and improve cognitive, language, social and self-help skills.  Children in EIBI receive 20-40 hours of therapy a week for a period of at least 6 months to up to 2-3 years.  EIBI has a three-tiered supervision model with Instructor Therapists providing direct therapy, a Senior Therapist supervising the child and their programming every week, and a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA) Clinical Supervisor who is an approved provider on the Ontario Autism Program (OAP) Provider List.

Cost:   $70 per hour*
* Additional costs for mileage and travel time for community sessions

Individualized Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) Services

Individualized ABA Services provide skill building and/or behaviour reduction programming designed to address the goals outlined in the Clinical Treatment Plan.  The range in price for service reflects the type of professional that will be needed to best support the child’s treatment plan.  Psychiatric Consultation is available for children/youth who are actively receiving Behavioural Service at Bethesda.  The consultation can be integrated into the child/youth’s Clinical Treatment Plan to assess and treat mental health concerns. All Behavioural Programs are supervised by a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA) Clinical Supervisor.

Cost:   $55-$75 per hour* 
* Additional costs for mileage and travel time for community sessions

Psychology Assessments

A Psychological Assessment provides a comprehensive evaluation of a child/youth’s cognitive and adaptive functioning and may include measures of social emotional development and academic achievement.  The assessment process may include interviews, observation, testing and consultation with other professionals.  The assessment can be used to assess eligibility for developmental services.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy (OT) is a health profession that works with children/youth and their families to help identify factors that might be impacting a child/youth’s ability to participate in activities of daily life, e.g. self-care, play, social communication and coping skills.  OT assessment and intervention will focus on understanding how motor skill development, sensory responses, and visual-perceptual skill development are linked to the child/youth’s participation and provide therapeutic strategies to help enhance these skill areas.
