In-Home ABA Therapy

Having a family member with autism, you may wonder about the most effective means of treatment. Many children with autism benefit from receiving home center based treatment, where they are most comfortable. Home-based services can inspire better learning and development of skills, as well as a safe space that enhances confidence.

What Is ABA Therapy?

Applied behavioral analysis, or ABA, involves immersing a child in an environment that’s positive and caring as they receive personalized treatment and/or early intervention for autism spectrum disorder. Treatment via ABA home services allows children to experience improved development as the result of working with board-certified behavioral analysts (BCBAs).

What Can You Expect from A Happy Family ABA Services?

You can expect your child to benefit from a team with over 16 years of combined experience in treating autism. We only choose the most highly qualified professionals to work at A Happy Family, because we know that this is the only route to giving your child the best service. We also ensure that each and every staff member receives continuous training and certifications.

One to One Therapy

One to One Therapy is Focused ABA therapy that produces change across a broad set of skills. One to one therapy can increase your child’s independence and confidence with everyday life skills as well as communicating with others. Our care includes support not only for the child but for the entire family.

What Do We Do Differently?

A Happy Family Behavioral Services is proud to be a small, boutique-style ABA company. It is because of our small size that we’re able to cater to the needs of families, schools, and communities in Malibu, Burbank, Long Beach, Santa Clarita, Pasadena, and throughout Los Angeles County.

A small clientele allows us to focus on delivering the highest-quality personalized services to each child. Maintaining manageable caseload numbers means our therapy and clinical team always has the resources and time that each child needs to learn, grow, and thrive.

The small size of our client base gives us the opportunity to put our abilities and passion into the creation of new and even more effective programs for your child.

Finally, our small client numbers afford us the great benefit of really getting to know your family and your child, leading to even more empowerment, revealing of individual strengths, and fostering their continued growth.

Our families never have to be placed on a waiting list or risk losing growth opportunities for their child, and their schedules are always taken into consideration and respected. And because staff are generously rewarded for the delivery of continued quality and experience for every client interaction, they are continuously driven to improve and excel.

It is in these ways that we meet our goal of separating ourselves from large corporations offering ABA services.

Getting Started with A Happy Family
