ABA and IBI Therapy
The Birch Centre employs evidence- based practices in implementing Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) and Intensive Behavioural Intervention (IBI) therapy. ABA based interventions are supported by research, are socially significant, and monitored for effectiveness.
Our experienced team of clinicians and therapists collaborate with families and utilize evidence -based principles of learning and behavior to tailor individualized treatment plans. The goal of ABA is to establish or enhance any skill that promotes independence and or quality of life for the child across multiple environments and people. Treatment goals can consist of, but not limited to;
Communication and Language
Fine and Gross Motor Skills
Daily living skills
Our ABA and IBI therapy programs are delivered in a 1:1 environment led by Instructor Therapists who work directly with your child, which are monitored by a Senior Therapist. Senior Therapists work to evaluate, develop, and implement client specific programming for each child. The Senior Therapists will work with a Board-Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA) who supervises all programs ensuring programs are designed to meet all areas of a child’s development. We use a collaborative approach as we work alongside other professionals to provide the best individualized treatment for your child.
Social Skills Groups
Social skills are targeted from the very beginning of a TBC program. We understand that social skills are critical for meaningful integration and success within school and the community. Throughout the program, specific areas are targeted dependent on the child’s current skills and designed to address each child’s individual needs.
TBC provides consultation services which can take place in our centre, in your home, or community based. Once direct and indirect assessments are completed, analyzed and summarized the clinical team will share and discuss assessment results with the family.
At TBC we strongly encourage family involvement in the developmental learning journey of your child. As we focus goals based on the needs of the whole family, parent/caregiver involvement is essential to assist in producing positive outcomes for your child.
We encourage Parent Coaching as it is essential to learn the specific techniques and strategies to support your child by incorporating them into their daily routines and activities. These strategies can help promote generalization and maintenance of skills. Our goal is to increase parent’s feelings of competence and have positive parent-child interactions.
