Home Based Therapeutic Services (HBTS) is a program designed to support children with a variety of needs and/or developmental disabilities. Our staff members work closely with families, providing support and therapeutic guidance to assist children to learn the skills to be successful at home and in their communities.
Children typically learn:
- daily life skills for their everyday routines
- how to handle strong feelings
- positive behaviors
- coping skills
- social awareness
- social skills
As children gain success in more areas of their lives, they develop a greater sense of independence and self-confidence. Additionally, our staff supports families to learn the teaching strategies that best promote their child’s ongoing development.
We have found that caregivers of children with special needs have the most insight and knowledge regarding their child. We look to forge a partnership with the caregivers whereby we can gain valuable insight from their perspective and we can provide strategies and insight from a therapeutic perspective. When caregivers and therapists work together that’s when we achieve amazing progress.
