The Early Excellence Program is an intensive, center-based Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy program for children between the ages of 2 to 7 years old. Children in this program typically receive 25-35 hours of ABA therapy per week. In order to meet best practice standards, we strive to implement a minimum of 20 hours per week of ABA therapy with each child in our Early Excellence Program (National Research Council, 2001).
Our Early Excellence Program is ideal for toddlers and preschoolers in order to decrease core characteristics associated with autism and to teach pivotal skills they need to succeed in their earliest years and beyond. Our team implements evidence-based, one-on-one interventions that focus on teaching language, teaching play and social skills, working on learning readiness skills, and decreasing behaviors that inhibit learning in the natural context.
The Early Excellence Program’s aim is to prepare and teach necessary skills to enable a successful transition to a school setting. JoyBridge Kids staff works collaboratively with all of the child’s family members and service providers to promote a great outcome so they can be best prepared for a successful and fulfilling future.
