Early Intervention Services Program
Pivot Point provides comprehensive one-to-one and small-group treatment options for young children who have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder and other developmental conditions. Treatment usually starts in the child’s home, creating a fun and highly focused learning environment. As the child learns new skills, treatment is expanded to include early childhood education settings, the community, and other settings.
The program emphasizes a positive and systematic way of teaching skills and reducing behavioural problems. Treatment teams focus on creativity and flexibility, and work with available resources to develop a plan for each child that maximizes gains. We have a passion for measuring and showing regular progress!
The program uses applied behaviour analysis principles to determine a young child’s behavioural deficits and excesses. The program also teaches appropriate behaviours through the use of the analysis of verbal behaviour, discrete trial teaching, applied verbal behaviour methods, and natural environment teaching.
