Phase 1 (1-2 months): Initial Research for Individual Psycho-educational Plan and System Establishment
Upon completion of the registration in the Active Learning program, clinicians analyze the data from the Comprehensive Psycho-educational Evaluation results to set initial clinical and psycho-educational treatment goals and write detailed initial treatment plans.
During the course of this phase, Dr. Cho and his team set the top priority clinical treatment goals and initial psycho-educational goals to help improve the child’s language and learning development. They then develop psychological module and individually tailored psycho-educational strategies to achieve the goals.
These initial treatment goals and treatment strategies are written in an Individualized Psycho-educational Plan, called IPEP, by the child’s primary clinicians. The treatment team then sets the treatment procedures and guidelines and starts conducting structured sessions.
In order to objectively observe the child’s cognitive and behavioral progress development, the treatment team takes the behavioral modification approach in all sessions with the Behavior Charts. The Behavior Charts are composed of the Clinical Chart and Psycho-educational Chart and used to reinforce the positive behaviors incorporated into the initial clinical goals.
Once the child becomes used to the Behavior Chart system, the Home Chart is provided to the parents to target the child’s primary clinical goals.
