Center Based Program
Early Childhood Services
A program of Center-Based Services, Firefly’s Early Childhood Intervention Program serves children 18 months to 6 years old and utilizes Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to assist each child in maximizing their learning potential. We use intensive instructional programming, and naturalistic teaching within daily routines to establish, maintain, and increase the children’s active engagement with people and their surroundings. Individual strengths and needs are identified across all developmental areas including social, language/communication, cognition, motor, play skills, and adaptive/life skills. Individual strengths and needs are identified across all developmental areas including social, language, cognition, motor, and play skills. Progress is assessed daily through graphing and data analysis with a review and revision of goals as needed. A primary focus of the program is functional communication and language. Services emphasize teaching a child to demonstrate the same developmental level as their neuro-typical peers. Therapy includes 1:1 teaching and training by highly motivated and trained staff to assist children who would benefit from an individualized, structured learning program.
