In-Home Behavior Therapy


Children's Care In-home Behavior Therapy (IBT) services incorporates the latest research based teaching methodologies in Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) and offers those services to families of children with special needs. Research has shown that early and intensive intervention services utilizing principles of ABA is the most effective approach to teaching new skills to children with autism that lead toward greater functional independence. Children's Care IBT is targeted for young children with autism or similar developmental disabilities, but is effective for older children as well.

Families interested in accessing IBT services from Children's Care will be asked to complete an application packet as well as submit relevant developmental history, medical, educational, or recent treatment records. An initial assessment will be scheduled, in which trained clinicians will come to your home to evaluate your child's current skills across many domains. The assessment tool utilized is known as the Assessment of Basic Language and Learning Skills - Revised (ABLLS-R) and permits clinicians to develop appropriate programming and monitor skill acquisition over time. Ongoing assessments and parent review meetings are a staple of IBT to ensure that families are continually appraised of their child's progress and that the appropriate skill deficits are addressed.

For in depth information about Children's Care IBT services, please call 605-444-9550 to assist with information, application, and coordination of services.

"After six months of physical therapy with Becky Rippe of Children's Care through the Birth to 3 Program, our son Jackson is performing at his age level in terms of his gross motor skills. Becky was fantastic with him, and was ALWAYS very encouraging. We feel very blessed and thankful that we chose to have him complete this program."
