Description In the Czech Republic, applied behaviour analysis is an evolving field. Currently, only handful of certified behaviour analysis and centres operate throughout the country. Therefore, families seeking ABA interventions commit themselves to home-based programmes. However, it is a rather novel experience in our country requiring great financial and time commitment on the part of the family. And furthermore, the position of ABA intervention needs to be defined in the current educational system. How do fa- milies cope with the new situation? In what ways do they take part in the programmes? How do they evaluate their experience? What facilitators and barriers do they identify in the process? These are the questions we were seeking to answer via interviews with parents who have been involved in a home-based ABA programme for more than one year.
