In our social skills webinar, part two, we will go more in-depth with the details of running a social skills group. Most insurance companies are now using the 971 codes, and in this webinar, we will explain the difference between 97154 codes and 97158 codes and what this could mean to different insurance companies, and how to bill for them. This webinar will also explain how the BCBA can best support the RBTs running the social group and their role as supervisors. It will also cover how to create data sheets specific to particular groups and how to record and graph data. There have been many changes this year due to COVID-19. Therefore, we will also discuss running social groups using telehealth; protocols put in place while running social groups in person during the Covid pandemic, and the benefits of doing video calls for two-person peer interactions during one on one therapy.
