Friendship House Autism Services

The Center's Early Intensive Behavioral Intervention (EIBI) program is a center-based program in Scranton for children ages 2 to 6. The program offers full-day state-of-the-art intensive and comprehensive treatment based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis. Applied Behavior Analysis is a research based, data driven model proven most efficacious in the treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorders. The staff to child ratio is one-to-one.

The focus of this program is to teach basic learning and language skills and adaptive behaviors across the domains of communication, socialization, and daily living skills. The program immerses children in a social and language rich environment where children are able to generalize acquired skills to the natural environment.

The goal is to maximize young children's abilities at a critical stage in their development, when their brains are most responsive to acquiring and generalizing adaptive skills.

Children who are candidates for Early Intensive Behavioral Intervention (EIBI) have been diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) including Pervasive Developmental Disorder, Asperger's Disorder, Rhett's Disorder and Childhood Disintegrative Disorder.
