Learning and therapy must be relevant, interesting and fun! 

 

Our therapists and clinicians focus on the client's unique interests and strengths to support skill acquisition

  • We provide a comfortable, fun environment which encourages child/client engagement while we teach age-equivalent developmental and social skills
  • Use of evidence-based Applied Behavior Analysis to understand purpose of behavior and to systematically track and assess progress for positive behavior change
  • Focus first on effective functional communication with others, which is essential to all aspects of interaction
  • Verbal Behavior and Incidental/Natural Environment Teaching techniques used are scientifically proven teaching methods used in therapy sessions. 

 

  Some areas of therapy focus include:

  • Foundational learning skills (Pre-K to K milestones)
  • Functional communication
  • Group and peer socialization
  • Transitions to new settings
  • Participating or visit public events
  • Preparation for transition to school 
  • Age-appropriate independence
  • Replacement of behavioral barriers with effective responses 

 

   Therapy sessions may occur at our clinic, the client's home and/or any community settings in which support

    is needed. We also coordinate and collaborate with other professionals:

  • Pediatricians/primary care physician
  • Speech and Language Therapists
  • Occupational Therapists
  • School personnel

             ....... and many others whose contributions are crucial to the child’s plan and development!
