At KISS ABA we help families receive the services in applied behavior analysis to increase their socially significant behaviors and decrease their maladaptive behaviors. When engaged in home-based ABA therapy, it allows the clients the opportunity to learn the skills that they are able to use in their natural environment, HOME. The client’s home is the location that the behaviors will most likely occur. For example, home based therapy can help elicit behaviors in the area of bedtime, toileting, eating, cleaning up, cooking, and dressing.
When deciding the location of the ABA therapy sessions, it is best to consider where your child may be most comfortable, at home or another location. With time, the child will learn to engage in the wanted behaviors which should be generalized to other settings. Another benefit to having ABA therapy in the home is that it makes it convenient for the parents and their availability to get to locations other than home.
As we proceed with ABA services in the home, we structure the program individually for the client. With that, we set up an environment that elicits the independence that the client can attain. We focus the client’s programs on their ability level and emphasize a focus on communication, independent play skills, individualized skill acquisition programs, problem behavior reduction plans, and functional daily living skills. The long-term goal for each client is to enable them to generalize their skills to the home, school, and community and be able to fully participate in family, school, and community activities to the best of their abilities.
