Home-based therapy allows our therapists to provide treatment in everyday situations in your home. Home-based care also allows therapists to meet regularly with the family to review the child’s progress and make treatment adjustments as needed. The goal of home services is to provide support and training to the family in a more familiar setting. Providing therapy in the home setting allows us to observe client behaviors in the family environment and design programs to address those behaviors. For example, it is beneficial for teaching eating, bedtime routines and toilet training. It also provides opportunities for additional parent and family involvement and training, as well as community outings. 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.

Children with developmental disabilities may have difficulty succeeding in a school environment due to behavior, social, academic and communication issues. Breakthrough Behavior provides school-based ABA therapy by having a therapist work one-to-one with your child at school and help support their learning through the utilization of ABA strategies. Our team will implement treatment goals and behavior plans to help with any problem behaviors, learning difficulties, social behavioral challenges so that they are more appropriate for the school setting.
Our team is also able to attend IEP meetings, help with behavioral goals, and even train school staff on how to handle atypical behaviors. We are able to work with public and private schools depending on the school ad situation.
Breakthrough Behavior offers comprehensive group and individual parent training sessions. 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. Trainings include one in-home visit to model implementation of behavior strategies with your child.
Individuals with developmental disabilities often experience difficulty communicating effectively and efficiently. Communication deficits may present a number of challenges for children and families, limiting academic progress, appropriate socialization, and the overall quality of everyday life. Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) are trained to treat a variety of communication issues including problems with language, literacy and speech sounds. Speech therapy could help your child communicate wants and needs, expand the use of words and sentences, understand and express emotions, and recognize and interpret social cues.
