Individualized In-Home Autism Therapy and Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Consultation
Our in-home Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) consultation services are designed to help you increase your child’s positive, age-appropriate behaviors. The Trumpet Behavioral Health expert will observe and assess your child to determine the causes for challenging behaviors and then will work with your family to improve your child’s ability to function independently. This may include speech and language development, gross and fine motor development and skills acquisition. You will work closely with the consultant as a team to ensure your child receives consistent messages, which ultimately lead to success and improved behavior.
Behavioral Observation Data Collection
Our Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) experts gather data about your child at every session using program sheets, often organized by task/skill. You may also see various charts and graphs that record your child’s behavior. We encourage you to review the program binder frequently and ask questions, since it is important for you to understand the goals and objectives being targeted and how your child’s responses are being documented. It’s important for you as a parent or caretaker to review the data together with your Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and use this information to modify behavior plans as necessary. This will give your child the best opportunity for success.
Behavioral Therapy Scheduling
We encourage you to pick a consistent behavioral therapy schedule for your child, based on your family’s schedule as well as that of the Trumpet Behavioral Health team. Hours per session will be determined by the needs of your child and on a case-by-case basis. Any changes to the behavioral therapy schedule must be communicated directly to your skills trainer and/or your consultant. Please advise us of any schedule changes well in advance so that appropriate alternative arrangements can be made.
