Behavioral Intervention 

Behavioral Intervention or evidence-based behavioral services (EBBS) refers to the use of the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis to change socially significant behavior.  It is an approach to teaching that has been empirically demonstrated to increase positive behavior and decrease unwanted behavior more so than any other treatment approach.  It requires trained clinical staff.  At SBSLG, we offer both intensive behavioral intervention (IBI – more than 16 hours per week) and focused behavioral intervention (FBI – less than 15 hours per week).

According to the literature, Behavior Intervention works well with all children but children starting earlier make the most significant gains.  Research strongly recommends early intensive Behavioral Intervention for children diagnosed with ASD and encourages parents to start therapy as early as possible.

SBSLG Team Members:

Both our intensive and focused BI programs include the support of the Clinical Supervisor and/or Psychologist who is responsible for participating in and overseeing the assessment, the development of the individual program plan for each child and the continued supervision of staff and program. The Clinical Supervisor/Psychologist observes and gives feedback and suggestions to the Behavior Therapists on an on-going basis.
