Every child we assess is unique and has varying skills. The first step in developing a program that concentrates on the specific needs of the child is assessing their current abilities and deficiencies. The assessment involves a combination of direct observation of the child, interviewing parents, teachers, and standardized measurements.
A report is written based on the results of the assessment in order to identify the child’s current skill level, behavior excesses and deficits. The report also includes individualized program recommendations and goals. Once the report is reviewed with the family and/or client, services can begin.
One on One Home Based Therapy
Once the initial assessment is complete and in-home services approved, a therapist is assigned to the child. In-home One on One therapy allows the child to receive the full attention of the therapist, thus allowing the goals set to be achieved faster and with greater retention. Therapists at IABAS are highly trained in ABA therapy, and the focus of each in-home program is to address behavior problems, while increasing functional and daily living skills. Therapists run programming based on the child’s assessment results and individualized treatment plan.
