Through highly personalized intensive interventions, utilizing science
based principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA), with emphasis on Verbal Behaviour, our team of dedicated professionals is committed to meeting the unique needs of each child through Home based Programming Services in the Greater Toronto Area and across Ontario.
Intensive ABA programs consist of 1:1 structured therapy session. The use of Errorless Teaching through prompting and prompt fading techniques sets children up for success and promotes healthy and positive self esteem.
Our approach is holistic and the personalized programs cover multiple learning domains. Using a combination of Discrete Trial Training, Precision Teaching, Direct Instruction and Natural Environment Teaching, we teach a variety of skills including but not limited to Communication, Academic, Life and Leisure skills as well as Behaviour management.
Through relationship building and language based play activities, children learn vital Social skills required to communicate and cooperate with others.
Using guides such as the ABLLS-R and VB-MAPP assessments, programs are continually monitored and supervised by a Program Director/Senior Therapist and Clinical Director. We provide services for private clients as well as DFO (Government Direct Funding Option) clients and work with approved Psychologists. We meet with and involve families at all stages of program development and progress evaluation, and collaborate with auxiliary service providers (such as Speech Pathologists and Occupational Therapists) or schools as requested and necessary.
While the majority of the service we provide is directly with the child, the parents/families are vital players in the child’s intervention. Our team of professionals works closely with families every step of the way and provides Training for successful parent participation in their child's intervention.
Our Training services are ideal for parents/family or caregiver. We teach the basic principles of ABA and instruction strategies so that parents can participate in their child’s intervention. BTD provides printed materials as well as hands on practical training. This service is included for families of children enrolled in our Home based Programming and we also offer these services to families who do not receive funding or who are on the wait-list. EARLY intervention is very important and waiting looses precious learning time!
This service is for any child with behavioural problems and is not limited to children with neuro-developmental disorders. By analysing the function of the behaviour we are able to implement strategies to modify/eradicate undesirable behaviour and increase desired behaviour. This service includes parent/family training and/or 1:1 coaching.
