Behavioral Intervention for Autism

Within the past 20 years the incidence of Autism has gone from 1 in 10,000 children to 1 in 88 children. Most people personally know someone affected by this diagnosis.

Theories and medical interventions continue to come and go and evolve. However, one constant remains; intensive early intervention using a behavioral teaching approach is highly effective for children diagnosed with Autism.

Since 1993, Behavioral Intervention for Autism (BIA) has helped more than 700 children realize their potential. For some, that potential has meant learning to communicate their needs and find enjoyment in their relationships with their friends and families. For others it has meant an Ivy League degree and an independent life. Every success is celebrated.
BIA is recognized leader in the community and is one of a few non-profit 501 (c)(3) intervention providers in California. BIA promotes a contagious hope, a belief in all that is possible for individuals diagnosed with Autism.

Kid-Tastic Story: Ben
When BIA first started with Ben he could only say few words, yet he had an astonishing ability to recall music and melodies. During early sessions at his home, he was overheard humming nursery rhymes and classical music in between activities. One of them was Beethoven’s 9th symphony!

One day his BIA Tutor used Ben’s interest in music to teach him simple melodies on his toy piano. Ben has now graduated from his toy piano to a real keyboard, and has even performed in his first recital!
