The Lovaas Institute for Early Intervention is a research-based program that specializes in teaching children with autism, pervasive developmental disorders, and related developmental disabilities. The program provides services nationwide.
The UCLA Model of Applied Behavior Analysis was created and developed in the Psychology Department of UCLA under the direction of Dr. O. Ivar Lovaas. It is based on extensive clinical experience and more than 40 years of scientific research. The Lovaas Institute continues and improves upon this work under the direction of Dr. Lovaas.
Our focus is to serve children of all levels of functioning while providing an educational setting that allows them to achieve their individual potentials. The program is comprehensive - aimed at enhancing language and communication, social/play, pre-academic and independent living skills of young children so that they may take better advantage of opportunities in their communities and may require less professional attention as they grow older.
We are committed to providing the highest quality treatment available to children diagnosed with autism or related disorder. We approach this one child at a time by individualizing each child's program to best meet his or her needs.
We continue to conduct ongoing research, as well as develop new programming and curriculum, to improve the quality of life for all children receiving behavioral treatment. – less–ZoomInfo
