In-Home ABA Therapy Chicagoland, Central IL, Madison County IL, Columbia MO, & Austin TX.

What is special about In-Home ABA?

Our clinic programs offer intensive skill-building and behavior-teaching programs that are valuable to your child’s growth, but our in-home services give your child a chance to put those skills into practice in their own environment. Providing in-home services also allows us to create individualized programs, schedules, and methods that will work for your family. We always offer extensive parent and family training, so that you feel comfortable continuing to practice skills even when our team isn’t there to guide you. Our therapists are trained to provide fun and effective learning strategies for your child, because intensive therapy should be focused and fun. Having an effective professional will be so much fun for your child that he or she will run to the door to greet them!

How does In-Home ABA work?

  1. 1:1 therapy with a behavior therapist in the home setting. BCBA will supervise the services and will typically provide services in the home setting as well. Sometimes telehealth services may accompany in-home service.
  2. Facilitates caregiver training.
  3. Is not unlike center-based interventions, as the goal is to develop a treatment plan with objective and measurable goals.
  4. More easily allows the therapy team to meet regularly with caregivers to review progress and make treatment adjustments as needed.

How can In-Home ABA help my child?

  • Some learners may feel more comfortable in their natural environment/usual surroundings.
  • Provides a chance for the therapy team to witness behavior first-hand and address issues as they arise. It also provides a larger information base from which the team can better understand the dynamics and triggers that cause certain behavior.
  • Great opportunity for caregivers and siblings to learn from therapists about how therapeutic interventions and to get involved.
  • Provides a great way to teach daily living and household skills (e.g. bedtime routines, toileting, dressing, grooming), as it allows the therapy team to implement interventions in the setting where the behavior will take place (i.e., in the natural environment instead of a simulated one).
  • In-home care naturally provides more opportunities for caregiver training, thereby allowing caregivers to reinforce the ABA interventions and increase the chances that the learner will generalize and maintain the desired behavior.

Frequently Asked Questions

This really depends on the child. However, it is extremely important to have a high level of collaboration with the caregivers and make sure the child is able to generalize the skills she or he learned outside of the therapy sessions. In-home services are a great option for the caregivers to easily observe and participate during the therapy.

The clinicians will first observe and assess what the child is and isn’t able to do at home. If she or he is able to do certain skills inconsistently, they analyze why those skills are not happening consistently and how we can manipulate the environment, such as modifying instructions from the caregivers, materials, and level of assistance. If some important skills are not happening at all at home, they break those skills into smaller components and make sure the child has all the foundational skills in order to set her or him up for success. During in-home therapy, the clinicians are able to easily incorporate the child’s familiar items to ensure what she or he learns during the therapy is applicable and functional to the daily life.

Also depends on the child. BCBAs (ABA therapy supervisors) must adhere to their ethical guidelines which require collaboration and coordination of care with other service providers for the best treatment outcome of the child.

At BPI, we require a background check and extensive clinical training for all clinicians. Once the initial assessment is completed, the BCBA will introduce each team member to the child and his or her family first and make sure the team members build rapport with them initially. The BCBA will also be providing on-going individual supervision for each team member to perform the child’s specific treatment goals competently.
