Message to Families
Dear Touchstone ABA Parents and Caregivers,
I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. I can imagine how challenging and stressful it must be for our families in these uncertain times. I want to reassure you that Touchstone ABA is taking every measure possible in keeping our clients and employees safe, continuing care in a variety of ways and adhering to federal, state and expert recommendations.
A few of the measures we are taking include:
• Conducting formal assessments for each client’s individual needs and determining best practice treatment locations. Clients at significant risk of harm may qualify for continued in-person services.
• For clients continuing to receive in-person services, we are adhering to stringent health precautionary measures, including health screenings, frequent temperature checks of staff and clients and frequent sanitation procedures.
• Expanding our telehealth services, we have added staff and availability for our families to access telehealth services (meeting online, via Facetime or similar platforms) to provide support for you during this time. Please contact your BCBA or Janice Huber at (337) 526-5231 for more information about telehealth.
Please know a possible change in your child’s services and/or location is temporary. Unfortunately, we don’t know how long these changes will be in effect. We are monitoring federal and state orders frequently and fully expect a return to full operations once we are cleared to do so.
Please let me know if you have any questions and thank you for your understanding at this time.
All the best,
Dr. Grant Gautreaux
