Early intervention program:
There are five children 4 years
old and younger in the early
intervention program. They
come to Sambhav every day
with their mothers where the
mothers train their children under supervision of Sambhavs
staff. The mothers learn how to train their child with
intensive treatment, based on behavior analysis.
During group activities the teachers show the children how to interact with others. The aim of group activities is to bring the children out of their inner world, train them to pay attention to the world as well as the people around them.
Higashi daily life therapy focuses on the importance of physical activity in the management of behavior.
Intensive program: one on one sessions:
Every day the children have one on one sessions with their teacher.
The children have one on one music sessions three times a week. In music class they learn how to play bongos as well as the synthesizer. Every day there is music time at Sambhav where the children join together in the hall and sing.
Parent empowerment program:
Parent empowerment program focuses on the parents. It aims to train and teach parents how to treat their children at home. Every 4 weeks parents come to Sambhav to talk about their child s performances and ask for advice. The parents get assignments and programs to work on at home.
Every other Saturday the children at Samhav go to a nearby park for physical activities. They practice gross motor movements with variety of activities such as running, jumping and playing ball.
The main idea of sensory integration is to provide and control sensory input, especially input from vestibular system, muscles joints and skin. The purpose of the therapy is not to teach the children an activity but to make them more capable of learning.
Every day the children do independent work. In these sessions the children are given three different assignments
they complete independently. A picture exchange system (PECS) incorporates pictures
as a mean of communication. This system allows children who have difficulty in their communication skills to communicate.
