Home-based Services

May Institute's ABA therapy in the home helps children build skills and reduce problem behaviors.
 

Our applied behavior analysis (ABA) services are based on universally recognized, developmentally appropriate teaching methods, and help to improve the lives of children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities, as well as those with neurobehavioral and co-occurring psychiatric disorders.

Working together with families

Parents/caregivers are active members of their child’s treatment team. We encourage participation in services so parents/caregivers can become “co-teachers” during their child’s sessions. Active family participation encourages the child to use newly learned skills outside of sessions. We can also arrange for services to be provided in a childcare setting to accommodate working parents.

Home-based therapists provide parent education and training to ensure that the skills children learn during their therapy sessions are maintained and refined at home.
