Description: Organizational outcomes have become a topic of increased interest for providers and insurance companies. This increased push for more data often leaves organizations struggling to determine what data to analyze, how to gather that information and how it can be best represented. The ability to analyze client outcome data can improve current and future client outcomes as well as help your organization develop trainings to improve both the behavior analysts and client performance. This is especially true for early intervention providers who need to maximize client outcomes in that highly crucial time of their development. This workshop will walk you through some examples of client outcome data at both the micro and macro level, methods for collecting and storing the data, and take the opportunity to brainstorm outcomes data that would work well for your agency and client demographic. This workshop is designed for key stakeholders and leaders of ABA agencies.
Learning Objectives: Participants will identify preliminary key measures of client success in their organization. Participants will identify preliminary key measures of staff performance related to client success. Participants will brainstorm data collection methods for key measures that are feasible for their organization. Participants will formulate an action plan for piloting data collection and analysis of key outcomes.
Activities: Lecture regarding the importance of measuring client outcome data at micro and macro levels. Lecture and model of examples of what can be measured and how the data can be displayed for analysis. Small group activities to brainstorm current ways the participants organizations collect data on outcomes, then guided practice as small groups to develop methods to measure new outcomes data. Guided practice exercises on how to analyze outcomes data and how to create interventions to increase staff performance and client success.
Audience: Leaders or clinical directors of ABA companies. Members of the audience should have knowledge of how staff and client success is currently measured in their agency.
