Our ApproachIndividualized ABA behavior therapy for your child
At Autism Home Support Services, we utilize the evidence-based practices of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy, a treatment scientifically proven to have the most effective results for helping children with Autism achieve success.
From intake to kickoff of ABA behavior therapy, our technology-supported approach is an integrative one that hinges upon ongoing collaborative communication among our team and your family. One of our uniquely trained Family Support Coordinators will be there to answer any questions you have throughout the entire process, which includes:
Insurance Coverage Verification
Our in-house insurance team works with your insurance company to verify that you have coverage for ABA behavior therapy services for your child and submits bills directly to them, eliminating you as the middleman going forward.
A Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) meets with you and your child to conduct an in-depth interview screening to gather more information and observe your child in the home setting.
The BCBA will use the information gathered during the pre-care assessment, along with direct observation of the child, to create the initial Care Plan. This is a clinical document that details programs used to assist your child in meeting their goals (e.g., communication skills, academic skills, social skills, potty training). The Care Plan will be actively managed by your BCBA in collaboration with you as your child masters goals and acquires new skills.
Care and Support
A team of skilled Care Team Members (CTMs) will be assigned based on your child’s needs, geographical location and the required qualifications for the level of care provided. Your care team will be responsible for implementing your child’s care plan under the direct supervision of the BCBA.
Notes and data on your child’s development and programs will be maintained in an online format, available to you via a secure login anytime. With your approval, we add video data to demonstrate progress, communicate via Internet video conference, and can share this information with any other member of your child’s therapeutic team.
Ongoing Training and Supervision
Parent training is integral to your child’s success and our process. Your BCBA will provide routine skills development and behavior support for not just your child’s Care Team but parents as well. A monthly progress review meeting will be held between you and your Care Team to evaluate your child’s overall development within the program and make any necessary changes. Additional BCBA time can be scheduled as needed.
A few weeks ago, I observed E in his church group as they visited a nursing home to sing for the residents. When I started working with E two years ago, he struggled to make eye contact, use appropriate social language, and tolerate stimulating environments.
What a difference two years of ABA and parent commitment make! E was leading the group in song and dance, attending to the teacher during the performance, and then went on to individually greet and converse with most of the residents! He has made significant improvements over the past two years and I am eager to see what the next two years brings.Katie Null, BCBA Specialist with AHSS
