Each child’s autism treatment plan will cover goals across a variety of areas including communication, social skills, intensive toilet training, and other activities related to daily living, feeding, and vocational skills.
In order to reach your child’s goals, family education and training is an integral part of the treatment plan. Family involvement and training aids are critical, not only to the initial skill building, but also for the maintenance and continued support of the learned skills.
EFFECTIVE TREATMENT, RIGHT IN YOUR HOME
An ABA provider will work directly with your child for a set number of hours per session, two to five days a week. The provider will also support parents and family members in working with the child to implement behavior reduction and skill acquisition protocols. With one-to-one services, your provider interacts directly with your child the majority of the time. Examples of skills that can be targeted: language, play, social interactions, academics (letters, numbers, colors, shapes, reading, math, etc), toilet training, feeding (restricted interests or feeding self), and sleeping (troubleshooting sleep difficulties).
Parent and Family Training
As a part of ABA therapy, Navigation Behavioral Consulting provides training to assist families and to reinforce goals being targeted through treatment. The goal of parent training is to identify strategies parents can use in the natural environment with their child to increase communication and functional skills and decrease behavior that interferes with family life. Successful parent training and involvement leads to improved outcomes for the family as a whole. A provider will train the parent on how to work on skills with their child and how to respond to challenging behaviors.
A provider addresses one specific goal at a time and typically only sees the child monthly for a couple of hours. Intervention typically focuses on the function of challenging behavior, how to respond to the behavior, and methods to teach appropriate replacement behaviors. If needed, Navigation Behavioral Consulting will also assist in implementing proactive strategies such development of a communication system, and the use of visual supports as deemed appropriate to the individual child to prevent the occurrence of challenging behavior.
