Our Early Intervention Program is a parent-led program focused on developing parent capacity to teach their child social, cognitive and language skills. Following an initial consultation with the team, a bespoke individualized program will be designed for your child, and you will be directly trained and supported to deliver the program with your child. The program is designed to be embedded in the child’s everyday life with learning opportunities being optimized through natural environmental teaching and play. The program can also be tailored to helping parents deal with problematic behaviors such as excessive tantrums or aggression.
For children aged 0-6 years old
We Work to Understand Your Child Needs
The Early Intervention Program follows a Behavior Skills Teaching Model. Through consultation, we will design a unique program that identifies pivotal skills for your child and teach these through a parent-child program that incorporates,
1) instruction and dyadic discussion of the pivotal skill,
2) modelling the strategies with your child,
3) in situ practice or role plays,
The program is based on the principles of learning and is designed as a positive and non-judgmental approach to empowering parents to identify the skills they already possess and to help develop and explore new ways to engage with and teach your child.
Each session is between 60-80mins in duration and involves a review of the parent’s experiences and questions concerning recommendations, followed then by the Behavioural Skills Training model and written recommendations for home. Recommendations are designed to be easily incorporated into everyday interactions and home schedules and can be further adapted based on the time available to practice at home.
The recommended Program Package consists of:
1) First session consultation of evaluation and goal setting. Following this meeting, the team will design a bespoke intervention package specifically for you and your child.
2) 5 sessions of direct work with parent and child (each session will include time for discussion and questions)
Each session costs 160chf for non-members or 150chf for parent members of ASK
If the 6-session package is booked in advance it will cost 900chf
There is a 10% discount for parent members which means the package costs 810chf (booking must be made in advance)
Additional sessions can be also booked, and each additional session is costed at 160chf or 150chf for parent members of ASK
