Home-Based ABA Therapy Services

The ABA program designed for the home setting addresses the special needs of children diagnosed with autism.  It consists of the highly specialized teaching techniques of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), Verbal Behavior, Discrete Trial and Natural Environment Teaching.  Typically this program provides consistent daily sessions of ABA special instruction along with other therapies if they are mandated on the IFSP.

An ABA coordinator/supervisor is assigned to oversee the child’s program and progress and coordinate with the in-home therapist. The coordinator works with each child directly for 2 hours or more each week, making it possible to accurately assess the child’s program needs and to develop the appropriate behavior/teaching strategies. The coordinator is available to teach the family behavioral strategies and methods of incorporating the approach into the daily routine if this is appropriate. It is also the coordinator’s responsibility to train and supervise the ABA teachers and coordinate the interdisciplinary team.  All home ABA services are under the direction and supervision of a Board Certified Behavior Analyst.

Services provided at home allow the child to engage in therapy that facilitates typical, age-appropriate activities in the child’s natural environment throughout the day.  The home setting provides a wonderful opportunity for the child to interact with family members in increasingly functional ways and is ideal for parents who have other youngsters at home.  It is also possible to have services provided at other parent- designated locations (for example, at a daycare center or babysitter’s home) as long as clinicians are able to work with the child individually in a familiar setting.
