Toddler Program

Cutting-edge early intervention targeting social motivation and developmental competencies

The Koegel Autism Center is currently developing a cutting edge Toddler Program that will focus on the development and implementation of novel approaches to remedy the core symptoms of autism in young children. Drawing from a foundation of naturalistic developmental behavioral interventions, the program will focus on the promotion of synergistic parent-child interactions that generate crucial social momentum and jumpstart child development.

Rewarding Engagement and Adaptive Communication in Children (REACCH) Program

The Koegel Autism Center will soon be offering a 10-week program for parents and infants designed to support early social development. Geared for infants ages 9-21 months, the REACCH Program focuses on supporting social engagement through the use of motivating play activities and behavioral principles. This program is designed for infants falling slightly behind expected milestones in social development. Qualifying for this group does not mean that an infant will go on to receive an ASD diagnosis.
