Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy
At KISS ABA we help families receive the services in Applied Behavior Analysis to increase their socially significant behaviors and decrease their maladaptive behaviors. When engaged in home-based ABA therapy, it allows the clients the opportunity to learn the skills that they are able to use in their natural environment, HOME. The client’s home is the location that the behaviors will most likely occur. For example, home based therapy can help elicit behaviors in the area of bedtime, toileting, eating, cleaning up, cooking, and dressing.
When deciding the location of the ABA therapy sessions, it is best to consider where your child may be most comfortable, at home or another location. With time, the child will learn to engage in the wanted behaviors which should be generalized to other settings. Another benefit to having ABA therapy in the home is that it makes it convenient for the parents and their availability to get to locations other than home.
As we proceed with ABA services in the home, we structure the program individually for the client. With that, we set up an environment that elicits the independence that the client can attain. We focus the client’s programs on
their ability level and emphasize a focus on communication, independent play skills, individualized skill acquisition programs, problem behavior reduction plans, and functional daily living skills. The long-term goal for each
client is to enable them to generalize their skills to the home, school, and community and be able to fully participate in family, school, and community activities to the best of their abilities.
At KISS ABA, Parent training is a critical part of the programming. We offer one on one training for parents with and without the client. In these trainings, parents and caregivers will learn the fundamentals of behavior change and how to use basic strategies to improve their child’s behavior. When you partner with the family, the outcomes of the client’s success improve. With the support from all members of the family, your child can gain success at a faster pace. As the parents and caregivers, you are the center of the team for the client. We will surround you with caring, passionate professionals trained in ABA therapy. Our emphasis is on providing you with the information you need to make the best decision for you, your child, and the rest of your family.
Parents are always the most direct line of care to the client. This is one reason parent training is essential in getting the most from the ABA services we provide. We will work closely with your family to ensure that our plans are implemented effectively.
At KISS ABA, we understand that this process can be overwhelming. We are here to help you navigate through the obstacles and assist with the uncertainties that lie ahead.
