Behavior Intervention focuses on teaching children skills they need to be successful in their home, school, and community. Skills worked on may include social/emotional skills, cognitive skills, daily living skills, and others. 

Cognitive Skills


Cognitive development is all about how you learn and think. It's not just memorizing facts, but understanding the information so it can be put to use in your everyday life, including:

  • Understanding cause and effect,

  • Visual discrimination, matching, comparing, sorting, and organizing

  • Developing an increased attention span,

  • Problem solving,

  • Simple reasoning,

  • Understanding fact & fiction (or the difference between a truth & a lie),

  • Asking questions.

Cognitive Skills

Daily Living Skills

Self care skills are the everyday tasks undertaken to be ready for daily life activities. As children age, they should develop independence in these important areas of their lives.

Daily living skills include:

  • toileting and washing

  • brushing teeth and brushing hair

  • feeding oneself and safely swallowing

  • dressing,​ managing buttons, laces, and zippers

  • showering/bathing

Daily Living Skills

Social/Emotional Skills

Children are learning to talk about their feelings and the feelings of others. Social-emotional development, however, involves more than just expressing emotions. It entails:

  • Developing friendships with other children and healthy relationships with adults

  • Creating a positive personal identity (liking oneself and building confidence, for example)

  • Participating and engaging in learning

  • Regulating one’s own behavior and emotions

  • Developing a working memory, curiosity for the world, and persistence

The emotional well-being of children in their early years has a large impact on the quality and stability of their relationships with adults and peers. Children who are emotionally healthy will have better social interactions than those without, making it easier for them to establish positive associations with others.
