Intensive Behavioral Intervention (IBI) services provide long-term behavior services designed to teach children new skills and minimize or eliminate challenging behavior in the natural setting. These services are individualized, developmentally based, and comprehensive. An emphasis is placed on broad-based developmental and behavioral assessment, intervention planning, training, and follow-up care. The strategies used within IBI are based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and include natural environment teaching, principles of verbal behavior, and discrete trial teaching.
Providers make every effort to create a setting that maximizes the child’s successes and minimizes failures. To help accomplish this, we use errorless learning for skill acquisition, provide reinforcement for appropriate behaviors, intermix mastered skills with new skills, and simplify requests. Motivation is key to successful IBI sessions and a strong emphasis is placed on developing effective reinforcers individualized to each child.
