Intensive Behaviour Intervention
Intensive Behaviour Intervention (IBI) is based on the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis. It is typically the recommended treatment for children with autism but can also be used successfully with learners of varying abilities and diagnoses.
IBI involves 1:1 therapy or small group therapy, implemented by trained Instructor Therapists under the supervision of a trained Behaviour Analyst or Psychologist.
IBI is fun, highly customized to each learner’s needs, skills, and interests, and is backed by research. It is intensive, fast-paced, and designed to be implemented for 20 or more hours per week.
The focus of most IBI programs includes a mix of communication, social, life, and academic skills as determined by the family and professional team. Therapy is driven by data, and all progress is monitored and analyzed to ensure that your child is getting the most out of therapy.
Is IBI right for you?
- You are looking for customized, intensive 1:1 therapy for your child (10-40 hours per week)
- You want to teach your child an array of skills (communication, social, academic, life)
- You want to begin therapy while you wait for your spot on the government wait list
- Your child is struggling with a variety of skills that his or her peers seem to have learned easily
Getting started takes 3 steps:
Step 1: Contact me to book a free consultation to discuss whether IBI might be right for your child.
Step 2: If you decide to move forward with IBI, I will conduct an assessment to determine your child’s current skills and needs.
Step 3: Once the assessment is complete, we meet to discuss an IBI plan, customized to your child.
