Early Learner Program
Our goal is to prepare our early learners for lifelong learning; in essence, for children to learn how to learn.
Our Early Learner Program is specifically designed to give young children, ages 2-6, a jump start in acquiring meaningful communication and critical skills that provide a foundation for lifelong learning.
The program’s approach is rooted in Applied ‘Verbal’ Behavior Analysis, which focuses intensely on teaching functional communication and independence across environments and works directly with the child’s motivation. Our effective combination of integrated natural environment strategies and 1:1 intensive structured intervention create an optimal treatment environment.

Improving initiation/functional communication
