Schedule in-home care for your special needs child in Redlands & La Verne, CA

Independence Assistance Inc offers in-home care for special needs children and adults in Redlands, CA. Caring for individuals with special needs requires a special skill set. You must become acquainted with the individual and their guardian to offer support for the whole family.

We have extensive experience working with various levels of developmentally disabled children, who are verbal or non-verbal, including autism, down syndrome, and cerebral palsy.

If you’re looking for in-home care for your special needs child, we’ll schedule a consultation with our service coordinator. Our management team has over two decades of experience working with special needs children and adults, including those dealing with autism at different levels. During this initial consultation, our service coordinator will be effective in observing your child's body language, facial expressions, behavioral triggers, and interactions with others to develop an appropriate method of care.

Autism is not a disease: we seek to understand it, not cure it

Independence Assistance can also help improve communications between parent and child. We’ll offer suggestions and ideas to help you form a stronger bond with your child.

When working with children who have autism, it’s important to:

  • Gain Trust: The first and most important step is to gain trust and slowly build on it. 
  • Set Boundaries: Children with autism may test your limits, so setting boundaries is essential. 
  • Reward Good Behavior: Recognize and encourage good behavior with rewards. 
  • Be Confident and Assertive: Establish your rules decisively so they understand your expectations.
