Who Will Benefit:EIBI is a type of Applied Behavior Analysis focused on children under 4 years of age on the autism spectrum, or having developmental delays. EIBI uses the principles of behavior analysis to increase positive and useful behaviors, and reduce unwanted behaviors.

How It Works:Research has shown that EIBI is most successful when children receive at least 30+ hours of 1:1 behavioral based intervention in a week. This usually continues for 2-3 years. Students can attend our center from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (30 hours) or from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. (25 hours). Recommended therapy hours and session lengths depend on the child’s abilities, goals and availability for therapy (eg- endurance, attention span, need for naps, etc). While the recommended hours of therapy may seem arduous to some parents, it should be noted that time spent away from therapy may propel children farther away from desired developmental trajectories. Delays are likely to result in increased costs of treatment later on, and greater dependence on more intensive support across the child’s lifespan. 

Goals:EIBI initially focuses on developing communication and teaching skills of attention, imitation and co-operation. Once these skills have been developed by the child, the intervention goals expand to include visual performance tasks, receptive and expressive language development, social use of language, play and social skills, self-help, and academic readiness. 

Format: Students are taught on a 1:1 basis. Our teachers use an interactive, play-oriented approach, allowing every child the opportunity to learn in a natural environment. Once we have established a positive learning atmosphere, we can move on to a more structured approach.

Goals:

Group Inclusion: The targets vary according to the level of the group and individual difference. In general, the program will help in building basic skills, such as-

  • Improving sitting behavior.
  • Improving ability to follow classroom instructions.
  • Independently completing assignments and tasks.
  • Responding to one’s name only when called to answer questions.
  • Raising hand to answer questions or to get teacher’s attention. 

Social Skills: Here too, the targets will vary according to the level of the students in the group, and will help to build skills, like-

  • Greeting peers.
  • Sharing.
  • Responding when other students call or ask for something.
  • Initiating interaction.
  • Playing games.
  • Reading and comprehending body language, emotions, gestures, etc.

Format: There will be 2 trainers for every 5 students, unless a particular student needs special support. Teaching will be conducted in a group format but each student will still have individualized goals; and data will be collected individually to monitor progress.

Who Will Benefit:This intervention plan is designed for students who are currently attending school or are already developing language and social skills but require additional intensive support to keep up with their peers. 

 

How It Works:Since this program is for school-going children, this restricts the amount of time for which a student can attend. We offer two options- Daily Intensive Language Program (2:30 p.m. t0 4:30 p.m.) or the Extended Language Program (2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.). 

 

Goals:Due to the limited time limit of this program, the number and type of goals must be carefully selected. Ideally, students who are a part of this program will be receiving their academic teaching in their respective schools. This program will focus solely and intensively on language comprehension and communication skills, since progress in school and social skills are all dependent on language skills. The interests of the students and parental requirements will be prioritised. 

 

Format:Teaching is on a 1:1 basis. We use interactive, play-based teaching methods, creating opportunities for each child to learn in a natural environment. Once a positive learning environment is established, we will adopt a structured, table-top approach.
