Step 5: Building and Maintaining a Strong Team

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMaintain a strong team

Once your family’s intervention team is hired, it is important to remember your role as the parent and leader of your team. Be proactive:

  • Meet regularly with team members, and encourage communications
  • Focus on whether your child is making improvement
  • Review the information recorded by team members
  • Review your child’s needs and communicate them to the team
  • Consider whether you are seeing progress in meeting the goals set out in the Behavior Plan of Intervention
  • Submit invoice forms to the Autism Funding Unit right away so your service providers are paid as soon as possible.
  • Re-evaluate, if necessary, whether the team members are a proper fit for your child

Addressing Concerns

MCFD has asked ACT to be the first point of contact for complaints from parents and guardians regarding the service provided by RASP Professionals including Behavior Consultants, Occupational Therapists, Speech-Language Pathologists and Physical Therapists.

Parents who have concerns are welcome to call ACT. Our first step is to try to help open communications to resolve the issue. We can also put families in touch with either the Autism Funding Branch or the professional college involved, if that is appropriate. For more information, see more information about the RASP complaints process.
