PROOF THAT EIBI ACTUALLY WORKS
In 1987, the results of 25 years of over 400 worldwide research studies were published demonstrating that the long-term outcome of EIBI had a high rate of success. The UCLA Young Autism Project showed that as many as 47 percent of children diagnosed with autism were able to fully recover from the disorder.
According to a statement by the American Academy of Pediatrics on the topic of ASD Disorder in Children: “… enrolling the child in an appropriate and intensive early intervention program … promotes the development of communication, social, adaptive, behavioral, and academic skills [and] decreases maladaptive and repetitive behaviors…” Most doctors now accept the fact that early intervention greatly improves outcomes.
APPLIED BEHAVIOR ANALYSIS (ABA) TECHNIQUES
The intensive and comprehensive methods of the ABA field of science are skillfully employed by our team. The methodology we use encourages positive behaviors and discourages negative behaviors; in so doing it helps the child improves social and learning skills while reinforcing appropriate behavior. ABA also enables the child’s progress to be tracked and measured.
APPLICATION OF ABA
The clinicians at Scottsdale PBS use various types of treatment modalities in his early intervention work. Among these are:
In addition to increasing language, social and self-help skills, these techniques decrease negative behaviors, such as aggression, self-stimulating behavior, and self-injury.
Of course, parents are still the most important people in the child’s life and so play an essential role in helping the child to make behavioral changes. The doctors are respectful of parental insight and input, coordinating his efforts with theirs.
