ABA based Therapy In Sydney
Mosaic Early Intervention provides Early Intensive Behavioural intervention, based on the principles of ABA in Sydney.
ABA or Applied Behaviour Analysis is the application of the science of learning, with the aim to increase socially significant and age-appropriate behaviours and decrease behaviours of concern.
Children who receive a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or another developmental delay, may benefit greatly when receiving access to a tailored, comprehensive EIBI program, based on the principles of ABA, which aims to improve children’s learning to learn skills and bridge the gap between them and their peers.
How Can ABA Help My Child?
From communication and language to personal independence and play, ABA based intervention can be used to improve a range of skills.
Your child may show less frustration and challenging behaviour as they are more empowered to communicate and interact with others effectively and have their needs understood as a result of learning new functional skills.
When children are guided through the ABA program, their symptoms associated with diagnoses such as ASD, ADHD or developmental delays can be reduced.
Our EIBI programs based on the principles of ABA will prepare children for school by providing them with the skills they need to learn and communicate effectively.
This includes how to interact with their friends at school, asking for help and learning skills so they can be more independent and do well in the classroom.
What Can I Expect From Mosaic Early Intervention ABA?
When we first meet with you and your child, we will discuss your child’s needs, history and any concerns you have, then explain how our Sydney ABA programs work.
You’ll be introduced to your dedicated Behavioural Consultant who will work with you to plan a weekly schedule that suits your family.
Please note that most of our programs require up to 20 hours or more per week. Although this may seem like a lot, this is based on best practice recommendations for children with ASD, GDD or other developmental delays and provides the intensity needed to ensure the successful adoption of learning and skills. As the gap between your child and their same aged peers reduces, a plan to systematically fade the intensity of their EIBI program will be formulated with you and your child’s team.
Depending on your child’s needs, we may be working with you from home, at daycare or at school. It’s important for your child to learn skills and practice in various settings as well as experience working with different therapists. In life, we can’t always guarantee we will be at school with the same people or working with the same people, so experiencing a variety of therapists is beneficial and ensures the generalisation of skills is achieved.
As our therapy sessions are conducted in the child’s natural environment and targeting a wide range of skills, therapy sessions go for 2 hours in duration. The duration of enrolment in our program again will depend on your child’s needs, some children require support through an ABA based program for a limited time to quickly catch them up and get them up to speed with their peers, and others may require ongoing help. No matter your child’s needs, we are here to support them and you through the journey.
Mosaic Early Intervention prioritises the individual needs of each child and ensuring that they are Happy, Relaxed and Engaged throughout therapy sessions is a priority. We ensure children enjoy the learning process, show a willingness to participate in each and every session and build a positive and wholesome relationship with the therapists working with them.

Do You Work With Sydney Health Providers?
Yes, we work with other health providers, such as speech pathologists, paediatricians and psychologists. Sometimes a child must see several health providers to support their needs, and we work well alongside these different specialists to complement their services.
Many of our families are referred to us by other health providers in Sydney, and we are happy to refer families to different support services should they be required.
