In-home ABA consultation and instruction services
Our consultants, Board Certified Behavior Analysts, will come to your home to help your family with the issues that are most important to you; whether it is decreasing your child’s challenging behaviors, building your child’s language skills, or helping your child become more independent with a morning routine.
Initial Assessment: A senior consultant reviews your child’s reports and evaluations, interviews you and other team members, observes your child in his/her natural environment, and may implement various assessment tools. Based on the assessment, the consultant writes specific objectives for your child to work on and writes individualized teaching programs to help your child make progress on these objectives.
Service delivery: We tailor our services so they fit each particular family’s needs. While we know challenging and interfering behaviors can seem overwhelming at times, a trained ABA instructor can assist you by implementing training programs, modeling the skills you will need to work with your child, and providing feedback. Although the ABA instructor may be the one implementing the teaching programs, closely supervised by the consultant, parents are still kept in the loop and are encouraged to watch sessions. Because the ultimate goal of services is to leave the parent in charge of programming, we encourage parents to be closely involved in teaching their child. The consultant can train the parents how to run the teaching programs and consultants can serve as a resource to fine-tune the teaching programs and troubleshoot. A combination of consultation to parents and to an instructor is also possible. For example, if the child requires more instruction time than is feasible for only the parent to provide, both the parents and an ABA instructor could implement teaching programs.
Data are continuously taken (writing down exactly what the client does as the client does it) and these data are then graphed in order to track progress objectively. Teaching is individualized and dynamic; if the child is not learning, the consultant will adjust the teaching procedures. There is more than one right way of doing things! At Advances Learning Center, the child’s learning determines how we teach.
For in-home ABA consultant and instruction services, we accept private insurance and private pay.
