Where Do We Provide ABA Therapy?

Individualized ABA Services in Houston

Steps to Progress provides ABA therapy in different settings, including in our clinic, in the child’s home, in the community, and even in the child’s school. Our focus is on meeting the unique needs of each client and their families. We evaluate those needs on an ongoing basis so that we can ensure that the child develops necessary skills and is able to use those skills in the settings where they are needed.

In-Clinic Therapy

Our clinic environment is usually the best setting for your child to receive ABA therapy, providing more opportunities for BCBA supervision, therapy team collaboration, and social interaction than in any other setting. We also have ongoing video monitoring of all therapy rooms and play areas with monitors in the BCBAs’ offices so they can observe therapy and provide support at any time.

We maintain a natural environment at our clinic, with toys, books, and play areas. Our BCBAs purchase toys that are specific to each child’s interests. Our therapists wear badges for identification but everyone dresses casually and there are no uniforms. The goal is to make children and families comfortable, and for children to enjoy being at our clinic and learning new skills.

Parents are welcome to have their child’s speech and occupational therapists provide services to their children at our clinics. Steps to Progress also has a list of therapists for parents to choose from to provide services at our clinics.

In-Home Therapy

We provide in-home ABA therapy for locations that are within 25 miles of our clinic. During our initial assessment of the child, when the child’s needs and skills are evaluated, we will discuss recommendations regarding treatment location with the parents. If a child needs more support initially we may recommend that services start in the clinic and move to the home setting after the child has mastered certain skills. However, we also understand that some families may need to have services in their homes due to transportation or other issues. Our goal is to provide the best services for the child and also meet each family’s individual needs.

After children have mastered skills in the clinic setting we may also recommend moving services to an in-home setting. This will help to ensure that those skills are generalized to the home setting and also generalized to the parents and family environment.

In-School Therapy

We provide ABA services to children with autism in private school settings, with school and insurance company approval. Public schools do not allow behavioral therapists who are not employed by the school district to be in school along with their students. However, we can still support your child in the public school setting.

Our BCBAs can participate in ARD/IEP meetings and help with behavioral goals. In addition, Texas law requires that public schools allow students to leave for ABA therapy appointments. This means that children can continue to receive ABA therapy on a part-time basis while they attend public school, either by attending school for part of the day and ABA therapy for part of the day or by attending school for full days on some days and ABA therapy for full days on other days.

In The Community Therapy

Community trips with their families can sometimes be challenging for children with autism. Our staff may accompany you and your child to generalize skills learned in the clinic to the community setting. This will help to ensure that programs that our staff work on with your child in the clinic, such as those to prevent elopement, are effective in the community when the child is with their parents.

In our clinic setting, we are also able to help clients get accustomed to some aspects of activities that may be challenging, such as haircuts, dental appointments, or doctor appointments. Our staff can help them learn to tolerate the sound of hair clippers, open their mouths, and have someone look inside or have someone look in their ears. Our therapists may also accompany parents and their children to certain appointments to help them with situations that may be challenging for the child.
