Early Intervention ABA Services Program
Pivot Point provides comprehensive one-to-one and small-group therapy options for young children who have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder and other developmental conditions. Therapy usually starts in the child’s home, creating a fun and highly focused learning environment. As the child learns new skills, therapy 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. Therapy 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!
Our program is based on the science of human learning and uses techniques from a variety of approaches. We favor Natural Environment Teaching, Incidental Teaching, and Positive Behaviour Supports which support the whole family not just the child. Our approach is grounded in the techniques of ABA (Applied Behaviour Analysis) as this is the science of human behaviour, and we pride ourselves in being a modern ABA provider with a person-centered and holistic approach to therapy. We focus on fun therapy sessions based in play and real life practice for the development of functional language, social interactions, and daily living skills.
