About the Program
Our Early Intervention program aims to equip our students with essential foundations, tools, and knowledge necessary to become confident and independent individuals. It incorporates the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis to teach new skills and reinforce positive behaviors while minimizing challenging behaviors. The Early Intervention program encompasses a range of components, including a comprehensive 6–8-week assessment of each child’s skills, strengths, and areas for improvement. Structured play activities are utilized to teach social skills like turn-taking, sharing, and initiating interactions with peers. Communication development is encouraged through activities that enhance the children’s ability to express themselves through words or pictures. Additionally, self-help skills are taught to the children, such as dressing or feeding themselves independently. Positive reinforcement techniques, such as praise or rewards, are employed to increase desirable behaviors and reduce challenging ones. Furthermore, parents receive training and support to reinforce new skills and positive behaviors at home.
