Our therapists provide individualized autism services using Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy in your own home.
No matter what stage of the journey you are in, Teamwork will help you navigate through the process. If your child has not yet been diagnosed and you just want some more information, we’re available to help you. We encourage you to reach out to us as well as to read through the information we’ve included on our website.
WHO Do we work with?
Teamwork’s therapists are clinically trained to work with clients of all ages. Whether your loved one has just been recently diagnosed or is a teenager or young adult that needs some additional support, we’ll be glad to work with your family and equally confident we can do a good job.
How can ABA Help your child?
ABA CAN HELP IMPROVE BEHAVIOR IN THE FOLLOWING WAY
Language Development and Functional Communication: Communicating wants and needs
Health and Safety: Skills such as responding to “stop”, producing identification
Self-Help Skills: Skills such as feeding, dressing, and hygiene
Social Skills: Conversation, sharing
Play: Appropriate, functional, and independent play
Listener Behavior: Attending and responding to spoken words
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A HOME-BASED PROGRAM?
The primary advantage of in-home services is the ability to apply the principles of ABA in the child’s everyday life, thereby allowing him or her to carry over any skills learned at home into more formal or controlled settings (e.g., school, center-based settings). While there are many skills that a school or facility may be able to teach, there are some that may not be feasible to teach. Without a real-life application of learned skills, therapy is inconsequential. In addition, when therapy is conducted at home, parents find it easier to participate as the child and therapist interact, leading to more learning opportunities and transfer of knowledge from the therapist to the parent. We believe that therapy becomes exponentially more effective the more engaged the parent is. Best of all, no travel is required because we come to you.
HOW DOES TECHNOLOGY HELP OUR CLINICIANS WORK?
We thought the days of pen and paper record keeping were long behind us, but several companies still rely on archaic methods to support their clients. Teamwork’s clinicians each get their own iPads to ensure that sessions run as efficiently as possible. Clinicians are equipped with tools to properly track whether a loved one is acquiring new skills or reducing certain behaviors. Afterwards, the data that clinician’s collect are automatically graphed into easily digestible outputs. Why is this important? When clinicians spend less time making graphs, they can spend more time analyzing them and assessing how well individuals are progressing and how to sustain that momentum. They can also share progress reports with you more easily or utilize an online platform to ask other clinicians about any concerns they may have on a client’s particular situation.
HOW DOES TECHNOLOGY HELP OUR CLIENTS?
We share the same goal as the families we work with: maximizing a loved one’s potential. Two fundamental components to achieving that are engagement and collaboration.
When we refer to engagement, we mean how actively involved a parent or caretaker is in the individual’s growth. We try to make sure that caretakers are as involved as possible and so we do everything we can to help them stay focused. If we can take your mind off of the administrative work, then we can help you focus on what matters most. That’s why we try to make the process seamless for you: don’t waste time figuring out what convoluted invoices mean or where to send checks. In addition, we send automatic text reminders ahead of our sessions so that we reduce cancellations. Less cancellations mean better service for you and your loved one.
Collaboration is one of the best ways to ensure your loved one is receiving the proper individualized support. We share our progress reports within our own team, but also with parents and caretakers as well. The best part is, the data we collect is always at your fingertips! No more giant binders filled with papers and graphs that could be ruined, ripped, or lost. The data is portable too! The progress your child makes during ABA at home is always at your fingertips to share with teachers, caregivers, family members, or any other professionals on your team. We believe a dedication to open communication can lead to significant gains in a family’s overall quality of life.
