Q: As a parent I would like to be involved with my child’s services, how is this done?
A: Behaviour Innovations encourages parent participation. Regular team meetings will be scheduled with your team to ensure fluid transfer of information. Parents will also be asked to participate in training sessions to enhance generalization of their child’s skills to natural situations.
Q: How many hours of therapy per week does my child need?
A: An assessment of each child is required before determining the intensity of service needs. Research indicates that early intervention is most effective when a child receives 20 or more hours per week.
Q: My child does not have a diagnosis but I am concerned he is not meeting developmental milestones. What should I do?
A: Behaviour Innovations offers diagnostic assessments for children aged 18 months through adult hood. Contact BI today to learn more about the assessment process and to book an initial meeting.
Q: I want my child to receive IBI services but I work during the day. Do I need to be home during session?
A: Behaviour Innovations does require a responsible adult to be in the home during therapy sessions. Alternatively, a child can attend centre based programming. Behaviour Innovations has also conducted programming in daycare settings.
Q: What areas of development are targeted in IBI sessions?
A: A child’s program is uniquely tailored to meet their individual needs based on the results of the assessment and parent-indicated priorities. IBI programs are comprehensive in nature, targeting a range of developmental areas including communication, self-care, readiness skills, imitation, pre-academic, and behaviour reduction.

Q: In regards to your adult day program, can my child attend part time, one or two days a week?
A: Participants can attend on a full or part time basis, anywhere from one to five days a week! Some participants only attend on March Break, PA Days or during summer vacation if they are still in school.
Q: Do I have to wait until my child has graduated from high school to register for the day program?
A: We can start an intake when a child is as young as 13-14 years old, provided that they are a good fit for the program.
Q: Do you have a wait list for your services?
A: At this time, we do not have a wait list for services.
