Home Based Consultancy
Comprehensive Skill Building
Compass provides individualized behavioral therapy based on the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA). ABA methods and strategies are scientifically proven to benefit children with social, communication, and behavioural challenges, including autism. Home progammes can be implemented by the family alone, or with the support of trained behavioural therapists. By working closely with you and your child we strive to create learning opportunities throughout every day.
A quality home programme begins with an assessment to get an objective measure of the child's strengths and areas for development. Treatment goals are identified based on the child's skills and preferences and priorities of each family. Compass uses a variety of assessment tools including:
VB-MAPP Verbal Behavior Milestones and Placement Program
PEAK Relational Training System
Essential for Living
Early Start Denver Model
Goals are selected to enable learners to become independent and successful by breaking down desired skills into manageable steps. We use the science of behaviour to make learning easy and fun.
Intervention effectiveness and learner progress is measured by objective, ongoing data collection, which is reviewed regularly and used to adjust teaching procedures and programme targets. Quality home programmes have regular team meetings with family members and therapists to review progress, provide additional training and support.
