How Does Our In-home ABA Therapy Work?

First, our Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) will meet with the client’s caregivers to discuss developmental history, medications and any previous therapy. This is the time to talk about goals for the client: what you want them to improve and any behavior you’d like to change (aggression, self-injury, tantrums, etc.).

The BCBA observes the client during their regular daily schedule to accurately gather data on behavior, caregiver responses and any other influences.

Based on an analysis of the interviews and observed behavior, the BCBA will develop a recommended treatment plan to address the agreed-upon goals for the client.

Next, the BCBA will choose the right Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) from our team to work directly with the client and caregivers. The RBT is the person who will be delivering therapy in your home on a schedule that suits everyone’s needs.

During the course of the ABA therapy, the BCBA will continually analyze data from progress reports and make any recommended changes to your program. Our autism treatment therapy is flexible and dynamic to suit the needs of the client and the goals of the caregivers. We can include many different environments that are relevant to the client.

Family Role in ABA Therapy

Your RBT will be spending a lot of time with your family. You and your family should continue with your daily lives. And while you should let the client and therapist work uninterrupted, you don’t need to isolate anyone, stay quiet or leave home. On the contrary, caregivers need to be present in the home during the therapy schedule. We also encourage participation from other members of the household, such as siblings. We may recommend separate sessions for caregiver, family or parent training.

What to Expect

ABA Centers of America doesn’t believe in a “one-size-fits-all” treatment program. Our clients are individuals, and each of them is experiencing the world in a unique way. Our therapy plans are always customized, and they allow clients to work toward mutually agreed-upon goals.

A typical course of ABA therapy involves 20-40 hours a week for 1-3 years. ABA therapy programs are designed by our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) and conducted by our Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs). Both are governed and licensed by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB).

Other Available Services

  • Clinic Services
    Our center for autism care is a good environment for ABA Therapy when in-home treatment is not convenient. Our therapists make sure clients are comfortable and see our clinic as a place where they come to learn from friends.
  • Telehealth
    We can work with clients and families to create an effective remote program or a hybrid with some telehealth and some in-person behavioral therapy.
  • Caregiver Training
    For one to two hours a week, you’ll absorb the basics of Applied Behavior Analysis Therapy as you work with your ABA specialist and your child. We emphasize “caregiver” in our training programs because we feel it’s essential to work with anyone and everyone who is a significant presence in the child’s life.
  • Community Life Skills
    We provide training that helps people with autism deal with the demands of daily life. The training often involves real-life settings like the grocery store or a social outing to help people with autism function with as much independence as possible.
