Early Intensive Behavioural Intervention (EIBI) is a program based on the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) for individuals in the early childhood years. EIBI applies the principles of ABA to promote learning, skill development and relationship building, to enable children to participate in a meaningful way at home and in education and community settings.
With our naturalistic and child-led EIBI programs, your child will receive one on one therapy from a Behaviour Technician under the supervision of a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst. Services can be carried out in-home in addition to Kindergarten and Childcare settings and are suitable for children in their pre-school and primary school years. Community based EIBI is useful for generalising skills in a child’s natural environment. We focus on skills such as:
- Daily Living Skills
- Fine & Gross Motor Skills
- Functional Behaviours
- Language & Communication
- Play Skills
- Pre-Academic Skills
- Social Skills
- and more!
Community Based Early Intensive Behavioural Intervention (EIBI)
Benefits of Community Based Services
1. A Familiar Learning Environment
A community based therapy program allows your child to work on skills natural to their daily routines. This can include daily living skills like: eating, brushing their teeth, appropriate play, toilet training, and more. It will also allow your child’s therapist to observe your child in their natural setting, which will help them establish more accurate and personalised goals.
Community based settings are extremely convenient for most families, particularly when services are carried out in-home. Everything from our initial consultation, to daily therapy can take place in the privacy of your of your home. This will help your family maintain typical routines that are familiar for your child. Many families find that home-based therapy offers a convenience for minimising the added challenges of planning meals, traffic, adjusting schedules and more.
3. Family Involvement
EAS highly encourages parents to be actively involved in their child’s therapy program. This could include sitting in for a song, being present for activities, or simply having an open line of communication with your child’s therapist. It will also help your child’s therapist to observe interactions between you and your child, or your child and a sibling. This can allow our team to provide helpful feedback and even create new goals for your child’s therapy program.
For families who may not be able to stay involved, even with community based therapy, EAS offers a convenient app for all our parents to keep you up to date with daily activities and programs towards goals.
