Early Intensive Behavioral Intervention (EIBI)

The goal of Early Intensive Behavior Intervention is to change a child’s learning trajectory so that the child’s rate of learning approaches that of a typically developing peer. EIBI is characterized by the following:

EARLY

Early Intervention begins as soon as a diagnosis is confirmed. EIBI may produce the greatest gains when intervention is started before age 2.

INTENSIVE

Early Intervention is usually provided for approximately 15 to 25 hours per week.

BEHAVIORAL

Early Intervention is focused on the objective identification of skill deficits and behavioral excesses, and the use of teaching tactics derived from ABA to build functional skills

Early intensive behavioral intervention (EIBI), is an evidence-based, comprehensive intervention for autism spectrum disorder based on the principles of ABA.

What is Early Intensive Behavioral Intervention?

 

Early intervention is significant to treatment. Our programs address skill deficits faced by children with autism in a fun and rewarding way in all developmental areas, including communication, language, play, social skills, imitation and cognition, motor skills, daily living skills, and emotional regulation. As part of our comprehensive early intervention treatment programs, we also provide comprehensive parent, therapist, and teacher training, which allows for teamwork and collaboration and better results.

Our Early Intensive Behavioral Intervention Program is developed and tailored to each individual child, in order to teach the critical foundation skills necessary for long-term success. Pediatric Therapy Studio is devoted to enhancing overall quality of life through treatment focused upon the development of improved social interaction, play and leisure skills, meaningful communication, classroom readiness, peer relationships and improved independence.

 

Progress is achieved through the use of specialized teaching techniques, training and support for families, and a focus on teaching and increasing appropriate behaviors. 

Our individualized programs provide curriculum across all developmental areas of need, making sure that we teach all the necessary skills for successful skill development. Skill areas can include but not limited to:

  • Learning how to learn

  • Learning via observation of others

  • Language and communication skills

  • Social skills (from basic to advanced)

  • Play & leisure skills

  • Conversational skills

  • Imagination and creativity

 Diagnosis alone is NOT the solution. It simply opens the door to                                                                                                              getting the help that is needed by arming all involved with the                                                                                                                      relevant information. 

​If your child has difficulties with behavior management, it is recommended                                                                                                they consult a Behavior Specialist  to receive                                                                                                                                             an evaluation to see if they require therapeutic intervention.
