ABA providers apply these interventions within the child’s natural environment, which may include the child’s home, daycare, or other locations in the community that are part of the child and family’s every day routine activities.
Through the use of embedded coaching, ABA providers work with the families and caregivers to help them develop, learn, and carry over strategies that will be effective for their child. Family participation and collaboration are essential in order to maximize the benefits of ABA services.
