Elementary School Program
Elementary School Program includes Behavioural Intervention, Developmental Intervention and Cognitive Behavioural Interventions. There is considerable overlap in components of the programs, forming unique intervention strategies for the children. The program addresses the deficit areas in all the developmental domains; motor, language, cognitive, communication and emotional. The one to one intervention helps the child to get the concept at own pace while the task gets broken down into smaller elements. The multi sensory approach supports the children to activate the learning channels and generalise the concepts in own environment. The group set up reinforces the implementation of concepts and also encourage peer learning and communication.
The Program focuses on using Incidental Teaching, using Behaviour Principles of ABA, within natural learning contexts. The environment includes teaching learning materials and activities that are appealing to young children and the therapist expands on requests and activities that the child initiates. The program is very structured and works on individual goals within planned activities. Social Pragmatic Communication Approach targets building communication in naturalistic contexts, using facilitative rather than a directive style, providing opportunities for communication and consistently contingently reinforcing communication attempts are emphasized.
