ABA Therapist / Home Based Service Provider
Home Based Therapists are responsible for providing 1:1 ABA based therapy to children with autism and other intellectual disabilities. Through the use of developmentally appropriate, evidence based teaching methods based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis, therapists work to improve the communication, academic, behavioral, social, self-help, and play skills of each child based on their specific treatment goals.
Since autism affects every child differently, the teaching environments, methods, and strategies used in our ABA therapy programs vary depending on each child's individual needs. Our therapists also utilize a combination of the different applications of applied behavior analysis in order to maximize a child's ability and desire to learn. Data is collected throughout all treatment sessions to ensure progress and all programs are overseen by a Board Certified Behavior Analysis.
