early intensive behavior therapy
It is not a question of starting. The start has been made. It's a question of what's to be done from now on. -b. f. skinner
Early Intensive Behavior Therapy (E.I.B.T.) focuses on the acquistion of language as well as social, play and adaptive skills. Applied Behavior Analytic methods are utilized to reduce challenging behavior. Typically lasting two to five years in duration, E.I.B.T. programs use a combination of discrete trial methods and naturalistic teaching strategies. Parent participation is imperative in the generalization and maintenance of newly acquired skills.
Your child is eligible for an E.I.B.T. program if they are between the ages of 2 and 16 years of age and have a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder.
