Our Home-Based Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) program provides services to children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
Our Home-Based ABA program assists children and their families with skill acquisition and behavior management that will allow each child to live his/her life as independently as possible. Home-Based ABA is often a long term service that can assist the child through various life stages, providing them with the support and expertise needed to navigate each developmental milestone or transition. Home-Based ABA is available to youth (birth-18) in the Boston and Metro areas.
Home-Based ABA services are overseen by a Licensed Applied Behavior Analyst (LABA) or Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and implemented by a Behavior Therapist. The LABA or BCBA completes testing, a functional behavior assessment, and an individualized treatment plan for each child, to specifically address their needs. The LABA or BCBA works with the family to create goals and oversees the implementation of the plan, meeting frequently with the family to assess if any changes are needed. The amount of time each team spends with a child and their family depends on the needs of each child and can range from a few hours per week to multiple hours per day.
The team meets with the family in their homes and community, or in our office locations. Families have access to parent coaching sessions while children may access some available groups on site at Italian Home for Children.
