Early Intervention

Early Intervention

ABA for Change provides specialised Early Intensive Behavioural Intervention (EIBI) for children aged 12 months to 7 years in Adelaide, South Australia. EIBI is an evidence-based, comprehensive intervention for young children with autism spectrum disorder based on the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) and has been shown to be associated with the most dramatic improvements in prognosis.

We will provide an intensive early intervention program targeting skills across all developmental domains, including communication, language, play, social skills, and personal independence. It may also focus on reducing behaviours of concerns. EIBI is provided for no less than 20 hours per week with programs designed specifically based on the child’s strengths, weaknesses, and priorities. Our programs are effective, fun and respectful and will always meet your child where they are at.

We are using a mobile service model that works with your child in home, in school/preschool, or in the community all across Adelaide. Each program is overseen by a Program Supervisor who is a Board Certified Behaviour Analysts (BCBA) and is implemented by privately contracted Behaviour Therapists and/or by the child’s caregivers.

Our Behaviour Programs

At ABA for Change our mission is to make a positive change in your child’s life by helping them learn the skills they need to communicate, participate, build friendships, and gain greater independence.

We are a mobile behaviour consultation service in Adelaide that provides home and community based supports to children with autism and related developmental delays.

No two programs are the same because no two kids are the same!

How Applied Behaviour Analysis Works

ABA for Change uses evidence-based procedures and treatments based on principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). ABA is a scientific, problem-solving approach to behaviour change that relies on strategies and interventions demonstrated to effectively reduce behaviours of concern and teach new skills. ABA breaks down complex skills into functional parts and teaches each component systematically.

Over the past 75 years, extensive literature has shown the successful use of ABA-based procedures to reduce behaviours of concern and increase functional skills for individuals of all ages with intellectual disabilities, autism and related developmental delays.
