AUTISM INDIVIDUAL BEHAVIORAL OBSERVATION (IBO) INDIVIDUAL BEHAVIORAL OBSERVATION (IBO) IS INTRODUCED BY KUNNAMPALLIL GEJO JOHN (2012), IN LIFE GROUP OF AUDIOLOGY AND SPEECH THERAPY CLINIC; THERE ARE 26 AUTISTIC CHILDREN OF DIFFERENT SEVERITY. WE HAVE A EXPERT SPEECH LANGUAGE PATHOLOGIST/ THERAPIST, WHO ADVISES THEM. FOR DETAIL ASSESSMENT OF THE CHILDREN ON THE WAY THEY ARE SEND INTO PLAY THERAPY, MUSICAL THERAPY AND SPEECH THERAPY. AFTER SOME TIME THEY ARE SHOWN PICTURES OF PLAYING OBJECTS AND ASKED TO POINT THEM OUT AND NAME THEM, THEY POINT OUT TOWARDS PICTURES WHICH THEY HAVE INTEREST IN .OUR THERAPIST KEENLY OBSERVES EACH INDIVIDUAL FOR 3 TO 4 WEEKS EVERYDAY .FINALLY, WE UNDERSTAND THEIR SKILLS LEVEL AND THEY ALSO UNDERGO TEST BATTERIES AND DIRECT ONE TO ONE SESSIONS. AT LAST WE START SPEECH THERAPY FOR EACH CHILD DAILY FOR 2 YEARS WITH A PARTICULAR CURRICULUM. AFTER WE HAVE ASSESSED EACH INDIVIDUAL THROUGH DIFFERENT TEST BATTERIES AND WE FOUND THAT 15 CHILDREN HAVE TREMENDOUS CHANGES. IT HAPPENED BECAUSE OF THE KEEN OBSERVATION OF BEHAVIOR AMONG AUTISTIC CHILDREN.IBO HAS IMPORTANT ROLE IN THE ABA METHOD AND AUTISM TREATMENT. AN AUTISTIC CHILD HAS POOR BEHAVIOR SKILLS, THERAPIST OR PARENTS SHOULD CAREFULLY OBSERVE. EACH INDIVIDUAL HAS THEIR OWN CAPABILITY TO ACHIEVE SKILLS. HOWEVER, SOME INDIVIDUALS DO NOT HAVE INBORN SKILLS AND ALSO A POOR SENSE OF UNDERSTANDING THINGS. SPEECH THERAPIST OR PARENTS SHOULD GIVE VERBAL ADVICE TO THE CHILD TO DO THE ACTIVITY IN THE CORRECT MANNER AND ALSO MODEL THE SITUATIONS. ABA METHOD IS SUITABLE FOR AUTISTICS OR AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER’S GROUP. MOREOVER, IT IS THROUGH THE ASSESSMENT WE CAN IDENTIFY THE INNER MOST PART OF THE PROBLEM. IBO IS ESSENTIAL AMONG AUTISTICS AND AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER’S GROUP, ON SOME OCCASIONS WE FORGET WHAT ALL THINGS THEY WANT AND WHAT ALL THINGS THEY KNOW. IN IBO WE MUST KEENLY ANALYZE THE CHILD; SOME PARENTS DO NOT HAVE MUCH PATIENCE TO OBSERVE EACH AND EVERY FACTOR RELATED TO THEIR CHILD, AT THE SAME TIME THEY HAND OVER THEIR DUTIES TO A THERAPIST OR CARETAKER. THESE PEOPLE HELP IN FULFILLING THE CHILD’S NEED AND TAKE CARE OF THEM. AS A RESULT THIS FACTOR THERE IS A RISK OFLOSING AFFECTION FROM THEIR OWN PARENTS AND ALSO BREAKING THE BOND .THESE THING WILL CHANGE THE ENTIRE LIFE PATTERN AND BEHAVIOR OF THE CHILD. THROUGH IBO, WE CAN DIAGNOSE THE EXACT PROBLEM AND BEHAVIOR. BASED ON IBO FINAL REPORT WE CAN START THERAPY, IT WILL BE REALLY HELPFUL IN EVERY STEP OF THE TREATMENT.
