Home-Based Services

In-home Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services offered by Kadiant use individualized plans to teach functional communication, basic academics (as permitted by the funding source), social skills, self-help skills, and independent play using a variety of teaching methods including but not limited to the Analysis of Verbal Behavior, Discrete Trial Training, NET/Incidental Teaching and Pivotal Response Training. All Kadiant programs use principles of ABA to capture each individual’s motivation and maximize success.

EARLY INTERVENTION (EI)​

  • Early intervention is generally for children under the age of 5 and especially for children under 3 years of age.
  • Each child is assessed using the VB-MAPP (Verbal Behavior Milestones Assessment and Placement Program, written by Mark Sundberg, PhD, BCBA), the Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales, 2nd Edition, an interview and observation, functional assessment (when appropriate), and a comprehensive records review.
  • The treatment plan developed outlines the child’s strengths and deficits and identifies goals for skill acquisition and behavior reduction.
  • The goals span all developmental domains with the overall goal of bringing the child’s skills up to the level of same age peers.
  • All EI programs require parent participation and training because parents are an integral and essential part of their child’s learning.
  • Hour recommendations can range from 25 hours per week to 40 hours per week based on the results of the assessment and research demonstrating that children under the age of 3 benefit the most when they receive at least 25 hours of ABA per week.
  • Services can take place in the home, pre-school, school (as permitted), and out in the community.

SOCIAL & BEHAVIOR SKILLS TRAINING​

  • Social and behavior skills training is for children and adults of all ages.
  • Each individual’s treatment plan and goals are based on a comprehensive assessment, similar to the EI assessment described above.
  • Goals address areas of deficit and excess, focusing primarily on behaviors that prevent individuals from fully participating in their families and communities such as aggression and self-injury, and teaching adaptive skills that enhance the lives of the individuals, such as dressing and toilet training.
  • Goals can also include teaching communication skills including advanced social conversation.
  • Hour recommendations range from 10-20 hours per week based on the needs of the individual and clinical recommendation of the Board Certified Behavior Analyst.
  • Services can take place in the home, pre-school, school (as permitted), and out in the community.

CONSULTATION

  • Kadiant can provide consultation services, as needed, to parents of children with any challenging or dangerous behavior.
  • Similarly to the above services, a comprehensive assessment is conducted to guide the development of the treatment plan.
  • A BCBA words directly with the parents/caregivers to train them on procedures developed to target the needs of the individual
  • Hour recommendations vary depending on the needs of the individual and his/her parents or caregivers.
  • Services can take place in the home, pre-school (as permitted), and out in the community.
