Ethics Statement

Our therapists are talented, professional people and pride themselves on being ethical providers. As a team, we are determined to follow the BACB and RBT codes of conduct at all times. As a result we ensure proper training, supervision, HIPAA compliance, and also professional boundaries.Therapists are not permitted to socialize with clients outside of sessions.They cannot babysit, accept gifts, or have personal relationships with clients or their families per the code of ethics. Additionally, all therapeutic programing and administrative concerns and conversations should come through the supervisor and BCBA. Thank you for helping us be the best we can be

EEO Statement

It is a core value at BASICS ABA Therapy that we provide equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability or genetics. In addition to these legal obligations we also protect marital status, sexual orientation, neurodivergent status, and gender identity. 

 

At BASICS we are dedicated to Innovation, Ethics, and Excellence and without a diverse and inclusive environment this would not be possible. We are focused on equity and believe that employers should not just protect legally protected classes, but others as well, because diversity in areas is essential. We will always follow EEO laws and will continue to protect beyond them.
