Adopting Applied Behavior Analysis or ABA therapy techniques at home is a wonderful way to support your child’s learning and mastery of new skills. Skilled ABA therapists work hard to develop customized learning plans for your child. Continuing that work as a family may make home life more smooth for everyone. Here’s why.
Practice Building Skills Every Day
Although your child may demonstrate learned skills while working directly with a therapist in a clinical setting, it may be hard for them to retain what they’ve learned in between treatment sessions. When you give your child the chance to practice those same techniques at home every day, you provide valuable reinforcement so acquired skills stick.

ABA therapy as a method of learning helps your child gain important social, cognitive and critical thinking skills. When you’re consistent with this same approach to your home routine that your child’s therapist applies to their clinical sessions, you may see for yourself your child’s progress. That’s a powerful motivator for both of you.
Regardless of how important your child’s ABA therapist is in their care, you as the parent have an irreplaceable role in their life. Working together as a team on skill building and reinforcement at home can improve and strengthen the relationship you share.
