Genesis Behavior Center, Inc.
is pleased to provide a center-based option for programs. At
this time, the center-based option is available only for families
whose children are enrolled in Early Intensive Behavior Treatment
(EIBT) programs (see "Our Services" page for more
The Genesis center is located on the grounds of Turlock
Learning Center (TLC), a preschool, kindergarten, and after-school
care facility located in Turlock, California. Children receiving
EIBT therapy at the center receive the same 1:1 intervention
format as in the home, but also have readily available opportunities
for assisted interaction with typically developing peers (as
appropriate, and as determined by each child's IEP team). In
addition, when the child's IEP team deems it appropriate for
the child to begin integration into a classroom environment,
TLC is one option available to the team for the child's preschool
and kindergarten needs.
Center-based programs offer a great option for dual-income
families, who do not have an adult at home during the day to
facilitate a home-based EIBT program. The pros and cons of home-based
versus center-based programming should be evaluated and determined
on an individual basis, with each child's and family's needs
in mind. It is Genesis' hope that the provision of a center-based
option allows greater access to intervention for children who
would not otherwise be able to receive it.
