Benefits of IGNITE
Research states early intensive intervention is one of the most effective strategies for improving the language, social, and adaptive skill delays associated with autism. Here are some of the goals of IGNITE therapeutic preschool program:
Low-risk activities that simulate the demands of a traditional classroom
Access to activities that improve social skill development prior to starting school
A individualized treatment schedule that focuses on your child’s unique needs
High frequency of learning opportunities each day
Increased likelihood of a smooth school transition
A large goal of IGNITE is to help early learning develop basic communication skills. Emphasizing the development of these skills early helps kids develop socialization skills to not only work alongside peers but also respond to the demands of a classroom. IGNITE allows children to practice those skills in a safe environment.
