The Benefits of Hopebridge’s In-Home Therapy

Rather than a cookie-cutter approach, Hopebridge clinicians consider a range of factors during the evaluation to determine the most effective plan and setting for each individual.

To increase access to care for more families like yours, Hopebridge offers in-home services as part of 360 Care. As with all of our programming, our therapy team will work with you to personalize goals that have a meaningful impact on your child and your family life, both in and around your home.

A familiar space

In-home services may be more effective for some children who have high difficulties with large settings and could benefit from the “safe space” their home provides. Rather than face additional barriers in a center, meeting the therapy team in a comfortable environment can make it easier for some to adapt to the newness of therapy, as well as decrease the amount of distractions while skill-building.

Get Started

Increased insight into daily routines

Clinicians can gain valuable insight into family systems, dynamics and routines when they work with your child from home. With a glimpse and understanding of the natural home life, they can support parents in creating goals and building skills that are the most impactful for the child and family as a whole.

Hands-on support in the natural home environment

By providing care in the home, therapists are able to address skills and behavior strategies within the child’s real-life settings rather than simulations. Home settings offer more opportunities for natural environment training around independent daily living skills like getting dressed, toileting, participating in family mealtime, bedtime routines and personal hygiene. This can help kids function more independently and increase generalization quicker, versus learning in the center and then taking the skill back home.

Adjustment of challenging behaviors that occur solely at home

In some cases, children display certain behaviors only when they are at home. For instance, they can make it through daycare or preschool successfully, but tend to wander or use aggressive behaviors at home. Or, maybe they struggle when a specific person, such as their dad or grandma, is around. In these instances, providing in-home support may be the best option, where we can assess the root cause and directly address these behaviors.

A stronger bond between siblings and friends

Serving in the home allows the therapy team more time with siblings. Therapists can facilitate more family interactions and help kiddos strengthen their social skills by incorporating more peer play and sharing activities with the most important people in their lives.

A focus on behavior intensity

Sometimes, a child’s behaviors are so intense they may hinder any sort of progress within the centers. In these cases, in-home therapy may be a more suitable option so clinicians can work with parents to put a plan in place that adjusts the behaviors before working to gain other skills.

Increased motivation

Another bonus of in-home therapy is that clinicians can incorporate familiar spaces, toys and even family members as reinforcers. For instance, backyard play, which would not normally be available in a center setting, could be used as reinforcement. More importantly, therapists can teach parents how to better understand how reinforcers are used as motivators. Through hands-on coaching on how to best use the items available in the home for reinforcement, it can be easier for caregivers to increase motivation on their own time.

In-Home Works for YOU, too

Easier access to parent training and coaching

Autism therapy affects not only the child, but the entire family. All of Hopebridge’s programs include parent training and family education, but by coming into your home, family members can often take an even more active and collaborative role. Our therapists can better involve caregivers within their daily routines, as well as educate them on specific strategies during sessions and how to better address behavioral issues as they unfold. This increases support for relational skills development and success.

Convenience

We bring the therapy to you. With no travel involved, our in-home service options save time for our families, making it a perfect match for parents who work from home.

Flexible, tailored hours

As with every piece of our 360 Care plans, Hopebridge individualizes the in-home therapy schedule. Based on medical recommendations, Hopebridge can provide comprehensive full-day programs, as well as focused, part-time therapy.

Hopebridge In-Home Therapy FAQs

  • How do I get in-home services?
    As of now, the process to receive In-Home Services is subject to availability and dependent on medical recommendation. Hopebridge is beginning to offer in-home services in select locations and cannot guarantee in-home options for all families at this time. When applying for services, you may express interest and willingness to participate in in-home therapy. After evaluations, clinicians will provide a recommendation as to whether the environment is the correct fit for your child.
  • What are the hours for in-home services?
    We are exploring tailored hours based on medical recommendation (in select markets). For children who are recommended to have a comprehensive full-day program, plans will consist of around 40 hours of therapy per week. For children recommended to have a focused, part-time program, plans will consist of around 20 hours of therapy per week.
  • Do I have to be present while Hopebridge conducts In-Home Therapy?
    A parent or a guardian over the age of 18 must be present during therapy. A Hopebridge staff member cannot be in your home alone with your child.
  • How do I switch to in-home if my child is in a center?
    Your child’s therapy is based on their BCBA’s medical recommendations and In-Home Services are subject to availability. If your child attends a qualifying center and you are interested in determining if therapy could be provided in home, please contact your Center Manager.
  • Can my child do both in-home and center-based?
    At this time, your child’s ABA therapy will be either conducted in-home or in-center. We are not currently offering a combination of delivery methods.
