After aging out of Early Intervention, parents of children who continue to require intensive therapy often look for a program that can continue to provide the individualized attention that their children need.
ABA (Applied Behavioral Analysis) is a highly successful method of providing these children with the intensive, consistent intervention they require in order to learn new skills.
Yeled V’Yalda, a leader in Therapeutic Intervention, has been providing this type of intensive therapy at their 21 centers in various local Jewish communities in the New York City area for over a decade.
And a new branch on is being opened on Eastern Parkway, in the Crown Heights neighborhood which will be directed by by Mrs. Eidle Sputz SLP-CCC.
The program, which is due to open in September 2011, will address the needs of children 3-5 years of age with intensive behavioral, social and communication delays, as well as the needs of children diagnosed with an autistic spectrum disorder.
Ruth Bier, a specialist will be supervising the ABA therapy while licensed and experienced therapists will create individual programs to address the needs of the whole child.
The center will also house a state-of-the-art pediatric sensory motor gym providing Occupational and Physical therapy in a sensory rich environment to meet the childrens’ fine/gross motor and sensory needs.
