Are you looking for in-home
autism therapy for your child?
Applied Behavioral Consulting (ABC) is a Chicago-based therapy group that goes into the homes of kids with autism to work with them on a personal level. As a team, we focus on direct communication to keep us moving forward as we change lives, one child at a time.
Benefits of In-Home Therapy
There are many benefits to carrying out autism therapy in your home. Your home is a natural environment that your child will feel comfortable in. They are more likely to exhibit genuine behaviors and feel much more comfortable in their own setting. Autism therapy in your home also offers our therapists the chance to witness behavior first-hand and address issues as they arise. It also provides a larger information base from which therapists can better understand the dynamics and triggers that cause certain behavior. It is also a great opportunity for parents to learn from our therapists about how to alter their care for their child and for siblings to get involved in the therapy. As new challenges arise, therapists can coach parents in new and different ways of addressing them. Rather than work in the abstract, both parents and therapists can work with a child’s real-life behavior.
Our in-home therapy curriculum is roughly divided into three sections. As your child develops, they will progress through each of the sections.
We start by teaching the fundamental skills necessary for learning. From there, we tailor our program to your child to lead them towards self-sufficiency. The amount of time we commit to the program and to each child depends on their needs. Some programs can be six days per week while others might only be a couple. Because in-home autism therapy is so personal, treatment plans will always be tailored to the individual child. Working from first-hand knowledge, general plans will be tweaked so that they are unique and as effective as possible.
We are proud to say that all of our skilled therapists are RBT certified and CPR/AED certified. Also, they have all undergone training to learn how to handle seizures. We at ABC believe that the necessary training & certifications are essential in providing the very best treatments for your child. Learn more about our passionate therapists here.
