5 Questions to Ask After Your Child's ABA Sessions

At Helping Hands Family, you are always included in your child’s behavior plan because the best ABA benefits emerge when everyone is on the same page! Our communicative approach to ABA therapy promotes a strong foundation for continued progress in behavior, social development, and functional improvements beyond the clinic.

To make the most of every behavior plan, our autism therapy model relies on constant client education. We want you to remain actively involved with the plan because sustainable progress can be significantly enriched when you have accurate information and real-time advice. What is the best way to maintain that foundation of growth? Keep asking questions and continue to improve your relevant ABA knowledge! 

An important aspect of HHF’s ABA therapy in PA, NJ or any of the states we serve is communicating with each child’s family after each session. Here are some practical questions you can ask to remain involved, keep the plan on track, and help your child succeed! 

1. Which Goals Are You Currently Working Towards?

With a better understanding of ABA methods and goals, it’s easier to align your home efforts with clinical efforts. Since ABA therapy is enriched by lesson consistency, understanding your child’s ABA objectives will enable you to maintain a focused plan of action. 

2. How Can I Support the Process of Reaching Those Goals?

Since every child’s learning plan is unique to their needs, it’s important that you understand the specifics of how goal progression is happening. When you ask our team about our ABA methods, you can expect our collaborative autism services in Stamford, CT, or any of our other locations to provide concise explanations of each learning strategy so you can cohesively support the plan at home. 

3. Which ABA Strategies Seem to Be Helping the Most?

Since autism diagnoses look different for each child, ABA therapy is personalized, so the strategies that work for one child may not work as well for another. The behavior strategies that will help your child progress are constantly shifting. It is important to receive regular updates on the techniques that are producing the most noticeable improvements. Whether your child is benefiting the most from positive reinforcement during one-on-one sessions or seems to be thriving with the group activities, continue to ask about the methods that are working so you can continue to promote those initiatives. 

4. How Are You Evaluating & Adjusting the Plan?

By asking about the ongoing plan adjustment process, you receive relevant feedback about current progress and how you can shape the plan for the better. As your child continues to progress, continue to ask about the routine evaluations and remain informed when necessary changes are happening. 

5. What Else Can I Do? 

When you ask for advice and helpful tips at Helping Hands Family, we do our best to provide real answers that are easily applied at home. Whether we recommend specific learning tools or a new approach to practicing positive reinforcement, continue to ask more questions, and we’ll do our best to provide the experienced guidance you need to succeed!
