A family-centred needs-based approach is at the core of Intensive Behavioural Intervention. All intervention goals are determined in ongoing collaboration between our clinicians and families to ensure that the targeted behaviours are socially significant to the individual and that behaviour change is long-lasting. TIPES is also happy to collaborate with other professionals such as speech language pathologists, occupational therapists, and physiotherapists in the individual’s care team to incorporate goals in programming from a behaviour analysis approach.
Our clinicians create individualized programming based on current research and best practices as directed by the field of Applied Behavior Analysis. Programming goals may include academic skills, self-help skills, daily routines, functional language development, fine and gross motor skills, learning to play, and/or group learning skills. Caregivers are encouraged to take part in our caregiver training sessions to assist with generalization and maintenance of learned skills.
