Proactive and Positive – In Office or At Home
Dr. Dillree provides services in a child’s natural environment, such as her warm and welcome facility and/or the child’s home and school setting.
Services are provided in the home setting for several reasons. First and foremost, the child is usually most comfortable in his or her home. Secondly, providing services in the home setting allows for parent and sibling training in a natural environment. Although Dr. Dillree’s direct services involve 1:1 teaching sessions with the child, the second part of her services focus on teaching family members how to generalize the skills taught in the 1:1 sessions through incidental teaching methods (teaching opportunities within the context of daily family life).
The school setting services typically focus on the acquisition of social skills, and coordination of academics across environments. Finally, Dr. Dillree addresses any challenging behaviors by teaching functional socially replacement behaviors.
