One-to-one ABA/EIBI Therapy
We offer 3 different treatment models differentiated by treatment goals and intensity of hours necessary to make meaningful change.
Treatment for one-to-one services is delivered in 26-week service blocks, including initial and ongoing assessments, individualized programs for each child based on their unique needs, and regular review of their progress with the assistance of a Supervising Therapist. All programs are overseen by a Board-Certified Behavioural Analyst (BCBA).
Our one-to-one therapy services are flexible and can be delivered in-home, community, or centre-based settings within Greater Sudbury. Get started by filling out our service inquiry form.
We offer 3 different treatment models
differentiated by treatment goals and intensity of hours necessary to make meaningful change.
Focusing on 2-3 developmental domains (language, social skills, challenging behaviours etc.) with 3-8 hours per week of direct therapy. A 6-month treatment delivery model is required with 1.5 hour session blocks per session.
Focused ABA therapy is a targeted approach that involves 4-16 hours per week of direct services with the child. It aims to address specific areas of need, such as reducing challenging behaviours and increasing independence with daily living skills. Caregiver involvement is crucial in identifying goals and implementing strategies. This type of ABA therapy teaches daily living skills, social skills, and reducing and replacing challenging behaviours.
Comprehensive ABA therapy is an intensive program that involves 20-40 hours per week of direct services. It is designed to target multiple developmental domains and promote independence in daily living skills for children. The goal of comprehensive ABA therapy is to accelerate a child's learning trajectory to levels typical of their age and maximize independence in various skill areas. Caregiver involvement is an integral part of this program to promote consistent implementation of behavior strategies and to facilitate the generalization of skills across environments.
Comprehensive ABA therapy can be used to teach a wide range of skills, including cognitive functioning, pre-academic skills, safety skills, social skills, play and leisure skills, community integration, vocational skills, coping and tolerance skills, adaptive and self-help skills, language and communication, attending and social referencing, and reducing interfering or inappropriate behaviors.
Early Intensive Behavioural Intervention (EIBI)
EIBI is a type of ABA therapy specifically designed for young children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). EIBI therapy is intensive, with a minimum of 20 hours per week of direct services, and focuses on teaching foundational skills that are necessary for later learning and development. Research has identified that learners under the age of 6 experience a greater impact with this treatment mode than older learners.
Consultation & Caregiver Coaching
Our Parent/Caregiver Coaching service is designed to provide parents and caregivers with the knowledge and tools necessary to address their child's challenging behaviour(s) and teach new skills.
Our team will work closely with you to develop a customized coaching plan based on your child's and family’s individual needs. We use applied behaviour analysis (ABA) to develop strategies and protocols that are evidence-based and have been proven effective in addressing challenging behaviour(s).
Our coaching sessions are a collaborative effort between you and the assigned Clinical Supervisor or Supervising Therapist, which may or may not include your child. We provide you with the skills and tools you need to implement the new strategies effectively.
Here are the steps involved in our Parent/Caregiver Coaching service:
Our first step is to meet with you and develop a list of goals you would like to achieve through coaching. We will also collect baseline data to gather more information about the behaviour and help guide the coaching process.
Following the assessment, we will develop a customized coaching plan that includes specific targets for intervention, replacement behaviours, data collection, and teaching protocols.
Training & Implementation
We will use a Behavioural Skills Training model to teach you how to implement the new skills you'll be learning. You will have an opportunity to practice the new skills with your therapist before implementing them with your child.
Monitoring & Updating
We will closely follow your implementation of the strategies provided in your coaching plan and review the data you collect during your scheduled coaching time.
Our ultimate goal is to empower you to generalize the skills you learn in addressing a specific challenging behaviour to other areas of your child's life.
