Early Intensive Behavioral Intervention (EIBI)

Updated: Mar 10


Written by: Sindy Victor, MS, BCBA, LBA


Early intervention therapy services are ideal for toddlers demonstrating symptoms of autism between the ages of 24 months to 6 years old. The connections in a child's brain are most adaptable in the first three years of life (CDC, 2023). These connections are the foundation for learning, behavior, and health. Over time, these connections become harder to change. This is why intervention is more likely to be effective when provided in early stages of development.




Children receiving early intervention support may show potential for increased academic readiness and to complete activities of daily living independently. Independence with skills like toothbrushing, hand washing, and toileting are at the foundation of positive social outcomes. The benefits of receiving an early autism diagnosis include:


  1. Developing meaningful bonds: Early intervention aims to help your child learn essential skills for building meaningful relationships. By teaching children to engage in functional play with age appropriate activities our technicians  will support the development of problem-solving skills, self-control, socialization and communication.

  2. Teaching daily living skills: Children receiving early intervention support may demonstrate increased academic readiness and have greater potential to learn how to perform activities of daily living independently.

  3. Reaching developmental milestones: Over time, the learning connections formed in the brain become harder to change. That is why getting started with behavioral interventions within the first 5 years of life is ideal for lasting outcomes.

Other benefits of EIBI include:

  • Academic readiness

  • Building communication

  • Improving relationship outcomes

  • Defining ethical boundaries

  • Increased opportunities for functional play (click here to learn more about the benefits of play based learning).
