ABA therapy services can be provided in a number of different care settings including a client’s home, a client’s school, or a dedicated Autism center. Therapy services conducted at a client’s home may be referred to as “home-based services” or “in-home services”.
Through this care delivery model, the family works with a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) to develop an individualized treatment plan (ITP). A Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) is then dispatched to the family’s home at pre-determined appointment times to provide 1:1 services based on the ITP.
As a parent or caregiver, it’s important to decide which care setting is best suited to your child’s needs. To help you understand if home-based Autism therapy is the right fit, check out a few of the main benefits below:
Home-based therapy services are available for children over the age of 5 with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder. Children best suited to home-based services are typically enrolled in school full-time and therefore may not be eligible for center-based services.
Please note, at least one caregiver must be present for the duration of all in-home therapy sessions.
