How is Tier 3 using Montessori and ABA at the same time?
Elements and applications of behavior analysis are already inherent within Montessori classrooms worldwide. The science of human behavior was discovered using objective observation, data recording, and interpretive analysis of data, just as Dr. Maria Montessori used scientific observation to discover her method of educating children with specialized needs.
Our aim is to validate, support, educate, and mentor the adults on these observed principles so they can adjust their Prepared Environment, including their own behaviors, to better support children in promoting each child’s independence. Our shared purpose is working toward inclusivity and peace within our Prepared Montessori Environments.
Are your Therapists ABA therapists?
Our Montessori Behavior Intervention Assistants are trained in the effective principles of applied behavior analysis, and are either Registered Behavior Technicians™ or working toward that nationally recognized credential. All of our staff are trained using the BACB ethical code, which means they are knowledgeable about which strategies work most effectively and compassionately to support children in their development, and which strategies are not evidence-based, are ineffective, or otherwise wasting precious time for introducing skills-based treatment. In all of our treatment approaches, the child and family come first. We work under Today’s ABA Pledge of: building rapport, televisability, and safety, and additionally, to the Tier 3 Montessori commitment to peace, inclusivity, equity, accessibility, and empowering neurodiversity.
Does insurance cover the cost of your services?
It depends on which insurance company you have, and if we are an approved service provider for them. We are approved for some insurance companies, and will also accept private pay, if necessary. This is also why we are unable to post our prices publicly, because every insurer has different coverage per plan
How much do your services cost?
The cost of services varies due to each individual child’s needs, and each family’s specific insurance benefits policy, including your insurance co-pay, since every company has different requirements and plans. Unfortunately, our private pay rates are determined by the base insurance rates. This is also why we are unable to post our prices publicly, because every insurer has different coverage per plan. Please hold on to hope! Our billing and enrollment team is committed to helping you come up with a workable solution. (303) 514-4552
Does my child need a diagnosis to participate in any of your programs?
No, at Tier 3 Montessori, we are committed to supporting all children individually as this is something we already do in Montessori and in behavior analysis; a label or diagnosis is not required for our work to be effective.
For the children who do arrive with diagnostic labels, we are familiar with those diagnoses, and can interpret the prescribed strategies into the language and methods used in the Montessori environment.
