Create Learn Understand, Bloom with Inizio.

Since the spring of 2019, Inizio Interventions has been hosting ABA-assisted peer groups for children with a diagnosis of autism or related diagnosis between the ages of 3 and 9. These popular 90-minute groups take place in the afternoons at our Granada Hills and La Canada locations and every week offers a different theme. CLUBi offers an exciting and well-rounded schedule of themed activities that include:

  • Social skills with peers
    (role-playing conversations)
  • Group games with peers
  • Gross motor imitation through music and dance
  • Fine motor skills through festive crafts
  • Snack Time
    (family style eating to offer support for children with feeding challenges)

Stay tuned for updates on our next CLUBi session!
