Behavioral Intervention Institute of Ohio

Center Based ABA Program
Behavioral Intervention Institute of Ohio believes in a comprehensive support system for all consumers, as well as readily accessible services to meet the current needs of the autism community. In the center-based program, Behavioral Intervention
Institute of Ohio provides either a half-day or full day intensive treatment program for children who need individualized intervention in either a staff to client ratio of 1:1 or 1:2. In addition, full day programs are available at higher ratios depending on the child’s behavior and level of functioning.

The Behavioral Intervention Institute of Ohio program follows a 10-month academic calendar year.  However,  BIIO offers supplemental 1:1 sessions and offers a 12-month option. This model, unlike the traditional public school, offers the opportunity to eliminate the summer break, thus preventing a gap in services that in turn will decrease the risk of losing skills or increasing behaviors because of the break in routine.

When a child begins treatment with Behavioral Intervention Institute of Ohio, goals will immediately focus on communication while building in other key programs that support communication development such as imitation and receptive language skills. In addition, the child will work on reduction of maladaptive behaviors. 

Each child’s treatment plan, though similar because of the nature of the autism diagnosis, is completely individualized and established in collaboration with the parents and IEP team. In addition, children receive a detailed assessment with the BIIO Clinic Director prior to their first session. Parents also complete several assessments to aid us in learning about the child. The Clinical Team including our certified Special Education teacher meet with the child's parents to determine treatment goals and objectives.  

Each quarter the Clinic Director meets with the parent and clinical team to walk through each treatment plan goal and provide data on the child’s progress towards that goal. At the annual anniversary of the child’s enrollment, the clinical team and parent participate in the treatment plan review and develop new goals to be targeted.
