Pathways for Challenging Behavior

Pathways – This program is designed to empower parents by providing current research and evidence-based intervention strategies in order to address the unique needs of their child with autism. Pathways is based on Naturalistic Developmental Behavioral Interventions (NDBI), a combination of ABA techniques and developmental science. Pathways is a 12 chapter program that allows parents and their children (aged 0-5) to work at their own pace to improve overall social engagement and communication.

The program also benefits children that struggle with behavior, social development, and/or self-regulation.

Requirements: Your child does not need a diagnosis of autism to receive intervention.

Does your child struggle with their emotions, anger, frustration, tantrums, transitions from one activity to another, social interaction, self-regulation, eye contact, or playing appropriately with toys? 

Pathways Early Intervention 

Parenting does not come with a manual, you say.  

Well, Pathways Early Intervention provides a manual. 

The Pathways Early Intervention Program is a research-based Parent & Child Interactive Program lead by a trained interventionist. This program is designed for 1.5 hour sessions. However, this can be too long for some children and two 45-minute sessions may be more feasible. The program is designed for 12 weeks but could take a little longer depending on child’s progress. The program fosters language development, regulating behavior, and parent -child connection.  

Financial Assistance

Shorkey has secured funding to support the program; without the funding support the program would be $150 a session. Financial assistance can be considered with application and proof of income. PATHWAYS is not supported by insurance at this time.
