Our services include IBI and ABA therapy. Here is a brief explanation of the two.
“IBI stands for Intensive Behavioural Intervention which refers to the application of principles of ABA in an intensive setting (minimum 25 hours per week) to result in behaviour change and improvement.”
“Applied Behavior Analysis is the process of systematically applying interventions based upon the principles of learning theory to improve socially significant behaviors to a meaningful degree, and to demonstrate that the interventions employed are responsible for the improvement in behaviour.”
What we offer:
Autism Behavioural Services has approved Senior Therapist in both locations. They are responsible for overseeing all direct services, programs, and supervision of staff. ABS also have parent, caregiver, and staff training as apart of our services. We encourage active members in the child’s life to come into Centre to observe their routines, programs, and ask questions.
Our therapists are available for consultation, planning, and implementation of programs. We offer Functional Behavioural Assessments, and ABLLS-R.
Our services include in home, in Centre, and in school.
Educational Field Trips/Camps
Each year Autism Behavioural Services offers three full week camps (march break, and two in the summer). These camps have fun, and event filled themes that get our kids out into the community, and include educational field trips to farms, apple orchids, Highland Pines just to name a few. These camps give our clients an opportunity to make and build relationships with friends their own age, and a fun week enjoying the time away from routine.
Social Skills Groups
Social Skills on Friday Mornings
Every Friday morning from 9am-12pm ABS has a structured, themed, educational program developed for ages 3-9 years. We encourage turn taking, independence, sharing, and following routine in a group setting. It a great way for our children to have the functional skills to make friends, and behave appropriately in public.
Social Skills on Thursday Evenings
During the school year there is a social skills group ages 9-16 years that runs Thursday evening. This group enjoys awesome community based programs like paint ball, laser tag, and tobogganing to name a few. One important aspect of this group is that once a month the group does some volunteering within the community such as racking leaves, car washes, and a special community Christmas dinner. This group gives the young adults the opportunity to have an active role in the community, and get their volunteer hours (for school), builds character, and healthy relationships.
