In-home therapies are based on an individualized plan created by a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and then implemented by a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT). The learner in need of services will be assessed to determine areas of need to create a treatment plan and/or a Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP).

Therapy schedules are part of individual assessments, but therapy hours can range from 2-25 hours per week in the home setting, at a frequency of 1-4 days per week depending on the learner’s needs.

Through each of our treatment plans, we prioritize building positive relationships and rapport with our learners and families. We do our best to incorporate ABA therapy into normal routines and use a play-based approach for young learners and other socially rewarding approaches for older learners. To be successful with behavior-based and skill acquisition therapies, we believe that the entire family must be involved. By training parents, they can help their children accomplish goals and practice skills outside of normal therapy sessions.

We value self-care for everyone in the family, making sure that the treatment plan being implemented is reasonable for everyone. We strive to help caregivers use strategies that will help them find time for themselves and decrease emotional strain.

In-home therapies are individualized to meet the needs of each family. Some of our services include:

  • 1:1 Behavior Therapy – This encompasses the whole individual ABA therapy plan that our experts will determine for the individual in need after a standardized assessment takes place.

  • Discrete Trial Training (DTT) – DTT is an ABA technique that breaks down each new skill or lesson into small, “discrete” components. The RBT then teaches each component separately to complete the whole skill, celebrating and rewarding the desired behavior along the way. DTT relies on consistent repetitive training prompts, modeling and positive reinforcement.

  • Natural Environment Training (NET) – NET incorporates instruction of new skills or using learned skills into the individual’s natural environment. It can incorporate activities and materials from the individual’s natural environment that they show interest in to help in their ABA therapy.

  • Parent Training – To be successful with behavior-based therapies, the family must be involved. By training the parents, they can help their children accomplish goals and practice skills when the RBT or BCBA is not around.

  • Individualized Programming – Each individual is different with differing needs. That is why we develop a plan tailored to the individual, working in cooperation with all other providers and your insurance.
