HOPE Group Clinical has opened a new early intervention center!
HOPE Group Clinical is proud to announce the grand opening of a new early intervention center in Phoenix, Arizona on April 1st, 2022.
HOPE Group Clinical has extended their high-quality individualized services to include center-based treatment. The center provides early intensive behavioral intervention to individuals between the ages of 0-6. Center-based treatment focuses on using the principles of applied behavior analysis to teach a variety of communication, social, play, pre-academic, and adaptive skills, as well as replacing maladaptive behaviors with appropriate alternative behaviors.
The center provides a safe place for early learners to grow, develop, and practice new skills. Skills are then generalized to home, school, and community settings. Center-based treatment presents opportunities for learners to socialize with peers while receiving one-on-one direct ABA therapy from a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT). Our team of experienced Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) provide high level supervision and oversee all program implementation.
Importance of Early Intervention
Early intensive behavioral intervention (EIBI) is a treatment based on the principles of applied behavior analysis that typically occurs for 20 to 40 hours per week. Early intensive behavioral intervention is a well-established treatment for teaching a variety of skills, replacing maladaptive behaviors with appropriate alternative behaviors, and improving quality of life. A combination of verbal behavior approaches, discrete trial teaching, and natural environment teaching are implemented in the HOPE Group Clinical EIBI treatment model.
Research has demonstrated that children who participate in EIBI receive better scores than children who do not receive EIBI on measures of communication and language, adaptive skills, social skills, intelligence, ASD symptoms, and quality of life (Reichow et al., 2014; Granpeesheh et al., 2009). Research has also shown that gains made in EIBI are maintained over time.
What Makes our Center Different
HOPE Group Clinical believes in embracing individual differences. Our aim is not to remove a child’s idiosyncrasies, but to improve their quality of life. We stand by our mission statement of honoring and optimizing the potential in everyone.
We recognize and accept neurodiversity. We are here to support children through their development and assist in improving well-being. Treatment plans are individualized to meet each child’s unique needs and focus on enhancing their strengths that lead to learning and connection.
