Home-To-School Early Intervention For Children With Autism

Intensive home-to-school training programs can produce comprehensive and durable improvements in important skill areas for most young children with autism. Anova is committed to optimal effectiveness in its early intervention services by providing the level of support necessary to assure success for both child and family. Development of the Service Plan is completed by a qualified Behavior Analyst in collaboration with the child’s parents and the child’s support team of other relevant professionals. Targeted skills may include self-help skills, communication needs, pre-academic skills, and fine and gross motor competence, including a functional analysis of targeted problem behaviors with detailed service recommendations.

A well-trained and caring Program Tutor provides direct instruction to the child. Program Tutors utilize teaching techniques that may include intensive direct instruction on specific skills and the opportunity for repetition of trials and incidental teaching strategies utilized while involved in play, self-care, community trips, or other routine activities. Program Tutors work under the supervision of a Behavior Analyst with extensive training in all aspects of program design. The Behavior Analyst provides the child’s parents with instruction on implementing their child’s skill training programs as the Program Tutor and Behavior Analyst model teaching strategies and behavior interventions for the parents. As parents become fluent in the training techniques, a fading plan for the Program Tutor and Behavior Analyst will be implemented to reduce the family’s need for continued intensive support.
