 Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the scientific study of behavior. The Process includes applying interventions based upon the principles of learning therory to improve socially significant behaviors to a meaningful degree (Baer, Wolf & Risley, 1968; Sulzer-Azaroff & Mayer, 1991). Behaviors are modified through changing environmental variables. Positive reinforcement strategies are used to increase desirable behaviors such as self-help, social, language, academic and imitation skills, among others. Positive reinforcement is also used to decrease maladaptive behaviors such as stereotypical behaviors or aggression. SKills are generalized to other environments, with other people and with different ways of responding.

  Speech Language Pathology focuses on language communication. Our therapist work with children with Autism Spectrum Disorders, Dyslexia and Phonological Disorders, among others. Evidence based interventions are used to create functional goals to improve speech and communication.

  Occupational Therapy assess functional daily living skills and creates interventions that promotes these skills. Skills focused on may include motor skills, academics, sensory processing, and play, among others. Developmentally age appropriate tasks are a main focus.

Our Mission

Our mission is to deliver effective early intervention services to help children reach their full potential. The brain continues to make connections over a lifetim, however it has been shown that children make the most gains when intervention occurs early in life. In the public sector, long waiting lists get in the way of children reaching milestones and services are often not obtained when children age out. At Le Parapluie Bleu, services are delivered in a timely manner, with short waiting list. Parents are guided so that goals are practiced in the home environment as well as that clinic/shool environment so that best outcomes can be obtained in all environments.
