First Steps Interventions strives to deliver contextually relevant interventions by utilizing a child's natural environment to teach important skills such as communication, daily living and adaptive behavior skills, and social skills. Using evidence-based ABA procedures, we ensure the generalization of skills from the start, by incorporating family members and familiar environments. First Steps Interventions is also staffed with experienced behavior analysts who can manage challenging behaviors such as aggression and self-injury through functional behavior assessment and behavior-reduction treatment plans. It is our philosophy that a well-rounded program should be culturally sensitive and developmentally appropriate. By providing clinic, community and in-home services, we are better able to serve the family's wide-ranging needs.
It is not a question of starting. The start has been made. It's a question of what's to be done from now on.

Early Intensive Behavioral Intervention (EiBI) is recommended for young children diagnosed with autism as a measure to alter the developmental pathway set forward by an autism diagnosis. Many important social and communicative behaviors are typically established within the first few years of life, and an intensive intervention is often the best way to fill in the gaps and help the child get on course to a more typical development. Contrary to outdated beliefs, there is a substantial risk associated with delaying treatment and waiting for the child to grow out of their challenges or delays.
