Hello, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you did not feel cared for or supported, as that is the opposite of how we aim to make our employees feel. Actually, every decision that is made is first filtered through the question of, “how will this affect the therapist and the families?”. Lack of full-time hours has been a concern brought to our attention in the past and we have worked to improve this in several ways, the most important of which includes asking potential employees to let us know exactly how many hours per week they are wanting to work in an effort to mitigate any concerns during employment regarding this topic. Unfortunately, things beyond our control sometimes effect this, such as patient or therapist illness, patient or therapist vacation, and patient insurance lapses, to name a few. As you know, in those situations we do everything in our power to coordinate alternative sessions, so the employee is getting as close to their hourly goal as possible. We would love to provide compensation for the drive time to patient sessions, however, with the reimbursement rates in the state of Florida being what they are, we aimed to instead provide our employees with subsidized health insurance, something that had been asked for by employees in the past. We understand that the cost for health insurance can be expensive to some. However, we elected to go with a plan that would cover our employees better during office visits and testing when compared with other plans. This leads to more expensive up-front costs but saves many employees money in the long run. We also contribute to each employee’s health insurance plan monthly to help offset the cost, something we are not required to do. Our plan is also voluntary, so employees are able to go through the Marketplace if their needs are better met with another plan. Additionally, regarding lack of reimbursement for drive time, we discuss this with all employees prior to their start in an effort to be as transparent as possible. No employee is hired without this understanding of what benefits we do and do not provide and being agreed upon by both parties. Thank you again for sharing so that we can improve our practices.

- You are truly valued as an individual and as an employee - Administration takes care of making sure you are always up to date with your credentials and necessary certifications While there are multiple drives between clients at times, the admin team tries to make sure that you are scheduled with clients who live near each other to alleviate the encumbrance. - A truly proper and ethical company for ABA services
- Driving to various locations (To be expected- as this is the nature of in-home)Accelerate Behavioral Health Response3y

Responsive management team and wonderful administrative support Quarterly company events to promote team-building Wonderful patients and families Good work/life balance Paid time off Health benefits Therapy materials purchased/provided by company and readily available for use Effort made to keep caseload numbers manageable and to minimize driving between patients Flexible scheduling Fantastic employees (hard working, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable) Great communication between all team members Effort made to find employees alternate hours when last-minute cancellations occur Effort made to pair patients with staff in a manner that maximizes staff strengths (which also supports treatment efficacy)
Sometimes the amount of driving can be tiring (as is often the case with an in-home service model) Scheduling can sometimes be hectic during transition times (e.g., school term to summer; this is not a con unique to this company)5Accelerate Behavioral Health Response6y
Thank you so much for your review! Health insurance and PTO is the least we can do to support such an amazing team! We feel that every Employee deserves the best so there's less stress on the part of therapist which translates to a better product for our patients and families.
