ABA Business Amazon List

Here is my Amazon wish list!  This is our affilate list so if you do decide to purchase we do get a percentage.  This helps us offer things like our free podcast, facebook group, and blogs.  

This is a great list for your business I will be creating a couple more lists for RBTs, and BCBAs.  Did I miss anything?  Send me a message and I can add it to the list.

Printers and Scanners

The ScanSnap scanner is AMAZING when you have to turn paper session notes into PDF, with some documents it can actually turn it into a searchable PDF so you can find it later.  We has this the entire time we ran our practice - wonderful when you have paper EOBs.

Brother is my go to printer - they are reliable, ink is inexpensive and they seem to last forever!
Check out the Brother MFC-L3710 CW

We have used a lot of shredders but my hands down favorite is Bonsaii, this thing won't stop!

An office projector really doesn't have to be the best quality, you do want something with LED vs a regular bulb (bulbs cost a lot!!!).  Size the screen based on the space you have.  You may also want to mount the projector to the ceiling so if you do that make sure it has a remote.

I personally like the roll up projection screens as you can tuck them away when not in use.

This projector mount is very versitle

De-Stress & Avoid ABA Burnout with a Relaxing Post-Work Routine

Working in ABA therapy can be stressful, and experiencing burnout from time to time is completely understandable. Creating a post-work routine that allows you to relax, unwind and leave work at the office is one of the best ways to avoid job fatigue. 

Post-work rituals will vary from person to person and can be as simple as taking a deep breath or a long bath. We recommend that you start by ensuring you’re setting boundaries that allow you to develop and maintain a healthy work-life balance. Start by tying up loose ends at work towards the end of each day. Cut down on after-hours worries by planning for the following day with next-day to-do sheets and by leaving your work at the clinic. Make these after-work hours count with social outings, leisure time and non-work-related hobbies. Adding an activity like art or crafting into your routine for a short 45 mins is proven to reduce stress and boost serotonin levels! 

Next, try creating a soothing home environment. This can be achieved with simple steps like decluttering your space and making your bed before leaving for work. Decorating for the holidays (no matter how early it may seem) is also a great way to boost your mood and create a cheerful home environment. 

Finally, try putting on a calming playlist or podcast while you go about your routine.  Listening to music is a proven way to relieve stress! The 3 Pie Squared podcast has an exclusive bonus episode, intended to help ABA practitioners relax and unwind, featuring a guided meditation based on the practices of Yoga Nidra.

Ultimately, your post-work routine should consist of the habits and practices that work for you. Your routine won’t be the same as anyone else’s and may vary from a few to many steps. No matter how you choose to destress and unwind after work, remember to enjoy it and relax!

Three Common Struggles of a New ABA Practice

New ABA business owners often face several struggles while establishing their companies. Don’t worry - these growing pains are common, and there are plenty of helpful resources to assist you in this new journey. Keep reading to check out three common challenges and solutions for ABA practitioners interested in becoming business owners. 
  1. Developing a Healthy Work-Life Balance
            Burnout is a major concern within the ABA industry. From challenging patients or behaviors to handling the business side of your practice, you are constantly juggling several tasks at once. All of these stressors, along with a dedication and love for ABA, can make it difficult to leave work at work and create a healthy work-life balance for yourself. Combat this by taking the time to focus on your own mental health with healthy habits like meditation, exercise, sleep, healthy eating and remembering to leave work behind when you head home.
  1. Finding Highly Trained ABA Therapists
            There is a large demand for ABA therapists throughout the United States and finding the perfect fit for your ABA practice can be difficult. 3 Pie Squared’s sister company, Ethical Clinical Careers, was created specifically to assist in the matching of ABA practices to qualified practitioners. As a member of Ethical Clinical Careers, you gain access to a variety of resources that will help you throughout your hiring search.
  1. Understanding the Strict Ethical Guidelines of the BACB
            The time and money it takes to understand HIPAA compliance and develop policies and procedures are valuable resources that could be focused on developing your practice and caring for patients. 3 Pie Squared aims to eliminate this struggle by providing ABA practices with comprehensive, specialized and up-to-date business resources and solutions. Learn more by signing up for a free consultation and see the benefits that working with 3 Pie Squared could have on your new practice. 
It’s easy to let challenges like the ones listed above deter you from pursuing the dream of owning your own ABA practice. However, overcoming these obstacles means you have an opportunity to make a huge difference in the lives of patients and their families. Remember, these struggles are common for new and seasoned ABA business owners. Knowing exactly what to expect when opening your own ABA practice and ensuring you have access to the resources you need are two of the best ways to face these challenges head-on.
