At Behavioral Innovations, we understand that children learn best in functional, natural settings. We know that Autism Spectrum Disorders affect not only the child but the family as a whole and as such we offer In-Home ABA services as well. These services follow the same best practice model as our Treatment Centers and are designed to provide a fun and productive learning environment in their home, school, and/or community.
Following an initial assessment, a Board Certified Behavior Analyst will create an individualized treatment plan for the child that specifies goals and objectives for therapy. While we are still able to work on building language, increasing social skills, and decreasing problematic behaviors, In-Home Services provide us with the unique opportunity to work on specialized skills such as self-care and daily routines. It also provides us with the opportunity to teach across a variety of naturalistic settings (home, grocery store, park, etc). This approach leads to therapy that is not only beneficial for the client, but also for their family. Data is collected and graphed to objectively track progress. The rate of learning is often increased through simple changes based on the child’s learning style. Although a therapist may be responsible for implementing programs, we understand that communication with parents is key to success. Parents are encouraged to observe and be involved in therapy sessions. Parent Training is also provided to families of In-Home clients.
