In addition to ABA therapy services offered in our Roswell, GA office, our therapists also travel all over metro Atlanta to come visit our clients in the comfort of their own homes. Home-based ABA therapy offers the unique benefit of learning skills that might be centered around the home, for example, toilet training and bedtime routines.
Here are some other reasons why offering ABA therapy in the home might be a good option for you and your child.
A Natural Environment: Adult or child, who isn’t more comfortable working with tasks inside their own home? By having ABA therapy sessions set in your own home, our therapists are able to observe more genuine behaviors and see how children interact with parents, siblings and even pets when they’re in a more comfortable environment.
Save Time: Many families opt for the flexible nature of in-home ABA therapy due to a pinch in free time in their days. Atlanta’s traffic can be frustrating for even short distances, so alleviating some of that stress with an in-home visit can be helpful for many families trying to balance multiple schedules.
Real-Time Experience for Therapists: In addition to a comfortable environment, in-home sessions offer therapists the opportunity to see behavior challenges in real time as they occur, instead of getting second-hand accounts from parents and caregivers. Many times, this can offer an even greater insight into areas that might require a more involved approach. Plus, your therapist might gain more insight into family dynamics and everyday triggers which may not have been included in handwritten notes or verbal discussions.
Learning Opportunities for Parents and Caregivers: In home therapy also offers therapists the opportunity to help guide and train the child’s parents, which is a vital part of the success of our programs. When we write a behavior plan for your child, we will train you how to properly implement the plan in a variety of life’s situations.
As new challenges present themselves, our therapists are positioned to be able to talk parents through different techniques and ways of addressing certain issues. This allows parents to see how to alter their care and techniques to best help their children’s behavior, instead of being presented with information that might be confusing without the hands-on practice. In home ABA sessions also allows siblings and other relatives the ability to see and practice these techniques for greater success and overall involvement.
Innovative Behavior Options also trains paraprofessionals and other service providers how to implement the individualized programs to provide consistency in behavior.
Our full range of ABA Therapy services offer convenient, on-site services at preschools, elementary schools, organizations and other centers in addition to inside the home.
