Created to support you and your child, our evidence-based practices and early intervention programs are crafted to ensure the most impact. While the journey may not always be easy, you’ll never be in it alone.
The Early Intensive Behavioral Intervention (EIBI) Program emphasizes a positive and systematic way of teaching skills and reducing behavioral problems. The EIBI program uses applied behaviour analysis principles to determine a young child’s behavioral deficits and excesses. The program also teaches appropriate behaviors through the use of EIBI theories, including the analysis of verbal behavior, discrete trial teaching, applied verbal behavior methods, and natural environment teaching.
The fundamental goal of our social skills program is to minimize the stress and anxiety suffered by individuals with autism spectrum disorder when participating in social interaction. The program strives to provide the tools necessary for successful interpretation of social and communication skills. The focus of the program is to increase the child’s overall ability to recognize and interpret verbal and non-verbal communication, how to cope with issues related to understanding emotional and abstract concepts, how to develop appropriate peer relationships, inhibit inappropriate responses & more.
Our behavior services are based on principles of Applied Behavior Analysis. We develop a treatment approach for children with autism which focuses on minimizing challenging behaviors and maximizing skill acquisition. Considering each child enters our program with unique needs, we focus on developing long-term goals that are important for each child and their family. The ultimate goal is to teach independence, appropriate social skills, build relationships, and develop many other functional skills.
We offer three flexible treatment models for our families. Each of our models can be applied across various settings
Our Intensive Model offers the highest level of ABA therapy supervision. Children receive five-six hours of monthly supervision from a program coordinator, five-six hours or more of weekly supervision from a BCBA, and 10-40 hours of weekly ABA therapy from a quality trained Registered Behavior Therapist.
Our Parent-Directed Model offers three hours of monthly supervision from a Program Coordinator, and three hours of weekly supervision from a BCBA. Parents supplement the weekly supervision and implementation by taking a more active role in managing the child’s program with guided support.
Our Workshop Model features one monthly six-hour session at our facility, or in-home from a Program Coordinator. The program is supported in day-to-day life with parental and community support. Interested in learning more about our practice models? Click here to speak with our intake coordinator.
Our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) do extensive initial intake consultations, including multiple home and community/school observations, to create a thorough report of recommendations. The BCBA will tailor the programming and goals directly for you. Pinnacle keeps your family in mind throughout the process to make sure you are completely aware, onboard, in agreement, and hopeful with working on your approved goals! Weekly parent training and BCBA supervision sessions are implemented consistently. Our Registered Behavior Therapist (RBT) staff is trained in implementation to provide an additional layer of support during ongoing ABA therapy sessions. Want to see how we can work with you?
