For new ABA companies or those looking to make a few changes to their operation, creating usable policy, procedure, or employee documents can be overwhelming. It eats up untold hours of precious time, small – but important – details can easily be left out, and making mistakes can spell disaster – especially if they violate HIPAA. Long story short, the pressure is on!

...We’re here to take that pressure off.

Our Quality Management System (QMS) was designed to be the perfect tool for any ABA therapy company looking to standardize their policies or transition from self-pay to insurance. It’s BHCOE Accreditation compliant and updated every 6 months to ensure regulations are met in every state. It contains over 600 pages of policies, procedures, work instructions, job descriptions, and more! We can help you set up electronic forms on your website for client input, employee quizzes, and incident reports.

Essentially, we want to save you tremendous time and worry and let you get back to the tasks that make this work worthwhile: improving quality of life for those who truly need it.

If you have any questions about what we do, please press the little green button at the top of the screen to contact us. We’ll be more than happy to walk you through it!

If you’re ready to purchase, simply scroll down, click on the products you need, and fill out the form that pops up – including a signature. Once payment is complete, you will receive both the signed agreement and a link to download your items. You’ll have 24 hours to download the files. But don’t worry, you can contact us and we’ll help you out if the 24 hours has expired.

Please note, while the QMS is an ideal system for ABA companies – since it’s tailored to your needs – it’s not meant to be a finished product from day 1. You’ll have to take a little time to customize it for your company. To make this process simple, we included MACROs* that allow you to add or change all of your business and contact information with the click of a button; and, we’ve highlighted all of the areas that will need to be adapted to fit your company. However, we strongly recommend that you review all aspects of the system to ensure it fits within your company, for liability purposes.

Once you’ve finalized your changes, we also recommend having it reviewed by your human resources consultant, employment attorney, or HIPAA/HITECH Consultant to make sure everything’s in its place. This is important, because although we do update these documents from time to time, we may not update until after a new regulation or law is in effect.

With our new quarterly updates and compliance check our handbooks will work for any State!  These documents do need to be reviewed to ensure all laws/regulations are being followed depending on your location. It is up to the individual company to ensure it is following all the correct laws and regulations for that company. We do have HR consultants that can work with you throughout this process.

If you have any questions before purchasing, you can always click the green button at the top of the screen to contact us!

*The all new MACROs make it so much easier to get your system up and running! Just enter your company info in the correct fields, and your information automatically updates in all relevant places throughout the manual. All policies have been reviewed by a human resources consultant and a proofreader.

Ashley Bango:

Ashley Bango, MS, BCBA graduated with her Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Fayetteville State University in December 2005. She obtained her M.S. in Psychology with a Specialization in Applied Behavior Analysis from Florida State University-Panama City Campus in 2008. She had the privilege of being a student of Dr. Jon Bailey and graduated with a 4.0 GPA. During her time at FSU, she had many great opportunities to get experience at various practicum sites. She worked home-based services for children with Autism with early learners. She wanted to have diverse experience, so she also worked in adult services in a day support program, designing reinforcement strategies with a program for children and families increasing healthy habits (i.e., exercise, nutrition, etc.), and an alternative school in the public school system specifically targeting maladaptive behavior in students the school had been unable to successfully support.

After graduating, she worked adult services supporting clients in the work and home settings to increase independence, communication, and decrease target behaviors. She continued on to work in a private day school setting for children and young adults 5-20 years of age with various disabilities and supervising staff in pursuit of their certification for 2.5 years. The next 3 years, she then moved to a private agency where she continued staff supervision, client programming, and then Program Director overseeing the ABA services, funding, and clinical documentation. This experience provided her the knowledge to then open her own company, Positive Change ABA, LLC in 2014.
