Autism and In-Home Support, Different From Home Support Services
“In-Home Support is an effective method for helping those on the Autism Spectrum to develop. Organizations across the United States specialize in helping those with special needs to meet every day goals.” – Gregory Ruel.
Portland, Maine — Assistance with Autism comes in many sizes and shapes. For instance, organizations such as the Autism Support and Advocacy Center, do a terrific job of School Support Services. This is accomplished by forming a partnership between the school and the family to make sure each of the child’s needs are met in school and she has just as much of an opportunity to learn as any other student. Forms of School Support include One-to-One aide to a child on the spectrum and frequent dialogue regarding the child’s progress.
However, when the school day is done, there is still a lot to be learned. An In-Home Support worker will help accomplish goals such as shoe tying, prompting play on the playground with another child, as well as a host of other chores and activities that may prove difficult to a child on the spectrum. Another such service is Woodford’s Family Services. According to their In-Home Support Page:
“The In-Home Support program is designed to support children in becoming active participants in both family and community life. Services focus on enhancing children’s skills through their daily living, self-help, self-care, behavior management, communication and socialization. Woodfords staff members work to develop an individual plan with each family, focusing on specific goals and objectives for the child. Woodfords believes that the family is a very important part of a team approach, and the active participation of the family is essential in building a strong foundation for the child.”
Consider contacting one of these services or similar service for a child on the spectrum. The support is often subsidized, and can help unlock potential in a child on the spectrum.
