A Day in the Life of an ECI

All of the clients with whom we work are so different; which means that the structure of the sessions are different based on the specific needs and goals for that specific child. Here is a snapshot of one type of session that involves following a schedule (to enhance predictability and compliance); teaching strategies embedded in developmentally appropriate, natural activities (to promote meaningful generalization); and a lot of parent participation. Why does the session look like this? Because the senior clinician (e.g., the BCBA) has determined – and the child’s performance has verified – that the structure and strategies incorporated into this session are the optimal methods to address this child’s treatment goals. Bottom line – No two sessions are alike.
