Overview

Help in the Home is a full service, family-focused approach to improving the lives of children and adolescents with autism and other developmental challenges. Vendored by local Regional Centers, Help in the Home offers a 16-hour parent training program to teach parents the basic principles of Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) and evidence-based intervention.
