Bright Beginnings provides Autism Services to clients in Durham, Kawartha Lakes, Quinte and Northumberland regions and is based out of Cobourg Ontario.
Bright Beginnings is an independent service that is owned and co-ordinated by myself, Mary MacNaull. My focus is on educating family members about the various principles of Applied Behavior Analysis. I provide program supervision to families who have hired their own Instructor Therapists to run in-home Intensive Behavioural Intervention Programs (IBI or ABA). I encourage the involvement of the parents while addressing questions and concerns in regards to their children's programs, behaviors, and overall development. Through regular home visits I assist in educating parents on evidence-based teaching strategies, and welcome the involvement of a parents as well as their input and ideas for their child's future goals. I provide service to both private and government funded clients with specialized, psychologist supervised, intensive behavioural intervention/applied behavioural analysis.
