Home-based ABA services allow teaching to occur in the child’s natural environment and incorporates learning within the child’s natural routine
Research indicates that early, high intensity intervention, often birth to five years old may have the best outcomes for improving your child’s development.
Achievement in the domain of social interaction greatly improves the quality of life for a learner and we place a premium on screening, assessment, and individually tailored interventions.
It has been proven that parents who are actively involved in their child’s therapy often see more progress in their children. Our clinical team is trained to build success for the entire family unit.
Telehealth is a tool that allows us to deliver Applied Behavior Analysis services directly to families using electronic telecommunication technology.
Our processes to improve cognition, adaptive, social, and emotional domains range from structured lessons to more naturalistic programming that can look like play, chore completion, or conversation.
Focused ABA services are for individuals who (a) need treatment only for a limited number of key functional skills, or (b) have such an acute problem behavior that its treatment needs to be prioritized.

Therapy sessions might take place in your home or community, depending on what the ALP Clinical team recommends. Each session, a Behavior Technician will work one-on-one with your child, targeting individualized goals embedded into fun and functional activities. Sessions can last 2-4 hours depending on your child’s needs. Parent training is always a part of the treatment plan, as we want you to have that support.
There are parent organizations and resources within the Antelope Valley area that may be helpful supplements to ABA therapy. Please contact us for more information.
We currently do not conduct diagnostic evaluations at this location, but can provide families with a list of diagnosticians in the Antelope Valley area.
The medical diagnosis must come from a diagnostic provider, such as a Primary Care Physician or Psychologist. Unfortunately, an IEP will not suffice on its own. A diagnostic evaluation, like the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS), would need to be completed.
Therapy sessions could take place in your home or community environment, depending on what the ALP Clinical team recommends, and if the school and insurance provides approval.
