Behaviour Therapy For School Age Children
The ultimate goal of ISADD ABA Interventions is to equip and prepare the child, in all facets of the child’s functioning, for integration into mainstream school as well as becoming a valued and active member in his or her community. To ensure each child reaches their full potential, ISADD ABA Interventions are built upon the following principles:
Creating the right learning environment
Learning occurs naturally when the learning environment is fun, positive and rewarding.
ISADD therapists focus on establishing a positive bond with the child and delivering the intervention in a fun, exciting and resourceful atmosphere.
Taking little steps to achieve great skills
Activities and programs are broken down into small steps according to each child’s abilities to ensure the child remains confident and positive in his or
her experience in the acquisition of the target skills.
Social development leads to language
The child’s potential unlocks when he or she learns to enjoy interacting and being engaged with the people in their environment (therapists and family members).
As the child’s social experience becomes positive and rewarding, his or her motivation for social interaction increases, hence the breakthrough in communicative
intent and the use of language.
Learning for real
Acquisition of new skills begins with a highly structured learning environment and gradually becomes less structured as the intervention focuses on the
generalization of the targeted skills. ISADD’s philosophy in training parents as partners plays a significant role in providing opportunities for new skills to
crossover to put to use in the child’s everyday life.
