Partnering with your family to deliver individualized, evidence-based care

Your child develops more in the first years of life than in any other period. Science tells us that’s when children’s brains have the most “plasticity.” That’s when they’re more adaptable to change through learning and experience. 

At BCI, we understand that early intervention for children with autism is critical.  

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends screening for autism at all 18- and 24-month well-visits. That way, treatment can start as a developmental delay or autism is suspected. It also allows for screening at a time when children can benefit most from intervention. 

At BCI, early intervention sets us apart. We believe the earlier a child starts in applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy, the better equipped they are for long-term success. We’re experienced in offering treatment that sets children up for success. 

Design Element Shape

Here’s what you can expect in our early intervention process:

A referral: Once you are referred to ABA therapy, you can schedule an intake meeting.

Intake Meeting: We’ll explain our program and answer questions so you can decide if this is the best fit for your family. 

Assessment: If your family chooses BCI, our clinical team will then use developmental tests to determine your child’s specific areas of need. 

Treatment Plan: Then, we’ll work with you on goals and objectives tailored to your child’s individual needs. 

Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) Meeting: We’ll map out your plan in detail and discuss what’s going on in your child’s life and how you can best support them. We’ll also go over their evaluation results and start setting goals. 

Transition Planning: Even after the early intervention period (which ends at age three in Massachusetts), we remain a close resource to help you make a seamless transition into insurance-funded services.
