Assessment

Initial Evaluations

An initial evaluation with Steps Therapy consists of in-person observations, conversations with parents and caregivers, and direct interactions with your child. This critical starting point enables us to begin building a program to help withcommunication, language acquisition, learning, behavior, social skills development, and other critical developmental goals.

Functional Behavior Assessments

The functional behavior assessment (FBA) service is designed to develop an understanding of a child’s unique challenges at home or school. This enables us to prepare a plan to manage and reduce problematic behaviors and enable your child to thrive.

Our skilled team has experience working with classroom teachers and school personnel. Our expertise in special educational procedures here in San Francisco enables us to make recommendations to strengthen your child’s educational program and to provide critical support for developmental goals at every stage. Additionally, ongoing reassessments ensure that your child is responding to the program and developing accordingly.
