Intensive Behavioural Intervention (IBI) is an in-depth form of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) that is provided at 24 to 30 hours per week. Children receive support that is outcome-based and goal-focused. The result is a comprehensive program that targets goals in multiple developmental areas, including play and social skills, speech and language development, pre-academic development, fine and gross motor skills, self-care, challenging behaviours, school readiness skills and much more.
Therapy is provided by a team of trained therapists and delivered one-on-one.
The goal of IBI is to significantly improve a child’s overall functioning and increase the rate of their learning. Skills that may be taught by the therapist include:
Transitioning to and from activities
Early social skills such as turn-taking and sharing
Play skills such as building blocks and figurine play
Fine motor skills such as pointing, holding a marker, and colouring
Gross motor skills such as throwing a ball and riding a tricycle
Early school skills such as sitting and attending for group activities
Daily living skills such as toilet training and dressing
After an initial and thorough assessment, we will create a service plan specific to your child’s needs.
Each cycle of Intensive Behavioural Intervention (IBI) starts at 12 weeks in length with a minimum of 24 hours per week of intervention directly with the child and family. Families are encouraged to extend or complete service plans back to back. If necessary, breaks between service plans can also be arranged..
Essential is four days per week and enhanced is five. We will help you determine which service is appropriate for your child during the intake process.
This service can be purchased using your OAP funding, out-of-pocket or other sources including charitable funds and private insurance.
