Our primary purpose of the provision of early intensive intervention services is to use applied behavior analysis to increase developmental levels and learning skills. The intervention activities will promote development in all of the following areas according to basic principles of child growth and development: Physical development (gross and fine motor); Cognitive development; Language and speech development; Psychosocial development (social emotional/play skills); and Self-help and feeding. A variety of ABA techniques will be used but are not limited to functional assessments, discrete trial teaching, positive programming, verbal behavior, shaping, chaining, and reinforcement. The format for these services are typically delivered in direct intensive format to the client and parent/mediator training.
