What are the advantages of home-based autism therapy?

Home-based therapy brings convenience to families, allows for better building of rapport due to clients feeling at ease in a familiar environment and also allows for the personalisation of therapy sessions according to the needs of the client.

Home-based therapy, as its name states, is the provision of therapy sessions in the homes of the clients. Traditional therapy is usually held in school or an early intervention environment. Home-based therapy is similar in the sense that sessions are also typically scheduled weekly or based on the schedule determined by the therapist, mostly involving only the client and the therapist.

This change in the work space and the utilisation of the home environment can bring about benefits for children or individuals with autism and their family.
