Can I add you as a friend on Facebook? Twitter?
When will I get to see my son/daughters picture on the website/ Facebook page?
You won’t see him or any client’s pictures on our website or Facebook page. I do, however, encourage you to enjoy the excellent stock photos on the home page. We have respected our client’s right to privacy since opening in 2017 and will continue to do so. The following is from the Ethics Code for Behavior Analysts (2022) and reinforces our belief that is never appropriate to post identifying information about clients on social media:
“5.10 Social Media Channels and Websites (see 1.02, 2.03, 2.04, 2.11, 3.01, 3.10)
Behavior analysts are knowledgeable about the risks to privacy and confidentiality associated with the use of social media channels and websites and they use their respective professional and personal accounts accordingly. They do not publish information and/or digital content of clients on their personal social media accounts and websites. When publishing information and/or digital content of clients on their professional social media accounts and websites, behavior analysts ensure that
for each publication they (1) obtain informed consent before publishing, (2) include a disclaimer that informed consent was obtained and that the information should not be captured and reused without express permission, (3) publish on social media channels in a manner that reduces the potential for sharing, and (4) make appropriate efforts to prevent and correct misuse of the shared information, documenting all actions taken and the eventual outcomes. Behavior analysts frequently monitor their social media accounts and websites to ensure the accuracy and appropriateness of shared information.”
What age group do you serve?
We don’t pick cases based on the age of the individual or other demographic category. We choose to work with individual’s whose behavioral needs are commiserate with our experience and expertise.
How much sensory integration and/or joint compression do you include in your treatment plans and sessions?
None; ethically, we can only use evidence based procedures. Sometimes, we can use it as reinforcement if the individual is motivated by these things.
Will you try the technique they were using on ’60 Minutes’ last night?
If it is an evidence-based procedure that has been replicated numerous times with published results in reputable, peer reviewed journals, and the procedure is the most appropriate for the individual, absolutely.
