In-Home

Why in-home ABA services?

ABA services at Nevada Autism Center are like no other- our primary focus is on the children we serve and their families. With less emphasis on insurance and billing, we can better meet the needs of each family that enters our doors.

NAC helps foster learning-rich environments and supports children of all ages and abilities. ABA is a science-based approach to managing symptoms of Autism and developing skills that will help with autonomy and independence. Here are just some of the programs typically used with children diagnosed with Autism.

  • Social skills
  • Communication and language skills
  • Self-care
  • Play and independent play skills
  • Gross and fine motor skills
  • Learning and academic skills

  1.  Gentle and non-confrontational introduction to ABA services

If your child has never received ABA services, it may feel overwhelming or overstimulating to them very quickly. Beginning therapy in the home might help them to relax in their natural environment and allow them time to adjust to the demands of their programs.

  1. Easier management of maladaptive behaviors

Aggression towards peers, self-injurious behavior, or other target behaviors are reasons why in-home therapy might be the best option for your family. These behaviors will be addressed by the therapist and the BCBA, however, for the safety of your child and others, the best environment for addressing these behaviors might be at home.

  1. Disability-friendly therapy

If you or your child have a disability, disorder, or condition that may interfere with trying to get your child to a clinic for ABA services, in-home ABA is perfect for your family. NAC guarantees your child will receive what they need in your home, no questions asked.

What to expect

We understand that in-home visits may seem a little daunting, so we want to be sure you understand what will take place and the expectations of you/your family during in-home therapy. While we want to keep parents and family members a central part of your child’s treatment, in-home visits should typically be just your child and their therapist and/or BCBA working together for the duration of the session.

We encourage you to go about your daily routine or take some time for yourself while we work with your child!

We do ask that a parent or guardian over the age of 18 remains in the home for the duration of the session. If you know there are certain reinforcers such as toys or edibles that your child likes, please feel free to put them out or in a special place that you communicate to the person working with your child that day. Toileting, dressing, and/or showering tasks must include your child, the therapist, and a parent or guardian over the age of 18.

ABA therapists in Nevada

Most in-home visits will be conducted between just your child and their therapist with minimal interaction with parents/family members. Parent-training sessions will be conducted weekly to ensure you are on board and in the loop with your child’s treatment and goals!

The session will likely take place in the living room or your child’s bedroom or playroom area. The therapist will work on your child’s goals and behaviour intervention plan as outlined on an iPad or cellphone device the therapist will keep with them during the session. During the last 15 minutes of the session, your child’s therapist will be updating their notes with what took place during the session and a summary of your child’s progress for the day. Your child may be given a preferred item to play with during this time or you are free to interact with your child.

Insurance coverage

Nevada Autism Center has contracts with many insurance providers! We are always striving to obtain new contracts in order to reach new families in need of services; if your insurance is not listed on our page, please contact us!

Benefits of in-home ABA services

  1. Family Inclusion

    In-home ABA services with Nevada Autism Center provide unique opportunities for families to be involved in their child’s therapy from the very beginning. Families will be able to see the modeled prompts and desired responses in-person so that they may continue working on these skills with their child when session ends. Rather than waiting until their scheduled meeting times for parent training, parents can receive training and feedback immediately while in the comfort of their own home. Our professional, knowledgeable, and personable therapists and BCBAs will feel like family and your child will receive the services they need without leaving your home!

  2. Less Exposure to Covid-19

    Since the Covid-19 pandemic began in 2020, it has become increasingly stressful for parents to get their child ABA services without the added risk of potentially being exposed to the Coronavirus. Receiving services in your home significantly reduces the exposure to germs, allowing you to have greater peace of mind when you’re able to control the amount of people coming into your home. Nevada Autism Center is closely monitoring and acting in accordance with the CDC guidelines to keep you and your family safe!

  3. Natural Environment Learning

    One advantage over in-clinic therapy is that learners can work on skill acquisition programs and behavior intervention plans in a known and comfortable environment. Having your child learn skills such as brushing their teeth or working on toileting in a familiar setting may help them to build confidence and carry their skills to new settings.
