Early Behavioural Intervention: Individualized Service
This individualized, intensive therapy for children under 6 years of age, that uses Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is delivered in our Child Centre. Our Clinical team conducts individualized assessments and interventions for each child. Instructor Therapists work directly with the children under the supervision of Clinical Supervisors. Caregivers are guided to support and extend their child’s learning across a variety of environments, using the principles of ABA.
Individual and group intensive intervention is provided anywhere from 1-2 hours per week (more focused intervention) and up to 20 hours per week (more comprehensive intervention). Locations other than our Centre, including using a virtual platform, may also be considered. The recommended hours of weekly intervention, clinical goals, and teaching procedures are individualized to maximize client outcomes.
Early Focused Behavioural Intervention: “1-2-3 and Me”
This individualized, focused, small group service for children under 6 years of age, is delivered in our centre for up to 15 hours per week. Assessment and interventions are individualized and supervised (see the comprehensive therapy described above) and caregivers are supported in extending the learning of their child. Locations other than our Centre may be arranged.
Early Behavioural Intervention: ABC Classroom
The ABC program is an extension of our Early Comprehensive Behavioural Intervention Program. Children may enter this therapeutic classroom at J.G Simcoe school for up to 3 days a week and attend 2 days a week in their home school. The purpose is to develop skills useful in the home school environment and to extend the learning of previous comprehensive services. The Limestone District School Board provides a teacher and an Educational Assistant and Maltby Autism Services provides Instructor Therapists and a Clinical Supervisor to supervise the clinical interventions.
Little Learners and Families
Children ages 3 years and 4 years, and their caregivers attend six, 1.5-hour sessions at our Centre with our Therapists. Small groups of up to 5 children attend together. Caregivers learn to promote the learning of their children in a supportive environment while Therapists guide them. Caregivers have the opportunity to meet each other and develop their skills of reinforcement, prompting and the basics of ABA.
How do I get started?
Initial meeting and clinical observation
We offer an Initial introductory meeting (no fee) with an Autism Family Support Coordinator to provide you an overview of services. A short behavioural observation (no fee) may be arranged after this initial meeting if needed. A Clinical Supervisor and the caregivers observe the child with a Therapist to help inform general clinical recommendations for service.
