We provide early intensive behavioral intervention (EIBI) at our center for children aged two-years-old through KG age. According to Jacobson et al. (1998) early and intensive intervention based upon the principles of ABA facilitates achievement towards functioning within normal limits of all areas of development. Additionally, assuming the clinical benefit for these children, there is also a substantial financial benefit compared to the need for intensive long-term therapeutic services through age of 22.
Our program is a minimum of 20-hours per week for each child, with the option for full-day support. Goals will be determined through a combination of parent interview and an objective assessment. Implementation of therapeutic services occur at the center, which will allow for the combination of one-on-one intervention and the opportunity for peer-interaction. In addition to intensive therapy for the children, regular parent meetings will be scheduled for ongoing education, training, support, and progress monitoring.
Clinicians are trained in behavior analysis and neurotypical development. Our front-line therapists are trained and certified, or in the process of obtaining certification, as Registered Behavioral Technicians (RBT) and supervisors are Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA). Some of our supervising staff are also dually credentialed as Illinois developmental therapists/child development specialists. All staff are CPR/First-Aid and CPI (or equivalent) trained.
