The Lovaas Institute for Early Intervention is a research based Institute that specializes in teaching pre-school aged children with
- pervasive developmental disorders
- related developmental disabilities.
The behavioral intervention program was developed in the Psychology Department of UCLA under the direction of Dr. O. Ivar Lovaas.
It is based on extensive clinical experience and more than 35 years of scientific research.
Our focus is to serve children of all levels of functioning while providing an educational setting that allows them to achieve their individual potentials.
The program is comprehensive and aimed at
- Enhancing language and communication,
- pre-academic and independent living skills of young children so that they may take better advantage of opportunities in their communities and may require less professional attention as they grow older.
