What we do....

 

We treat skill deficits that interfere or prevent a child (ages 2-21) from participating in the community/family.  We do this by filling in developmental gaps which leads to greater independence and an ability to organize and learn from the environment.  Our goal is to aid children in becoming as independent as possible.

We offer 2 levels of programming, focused and comprehensive.  See attached document for more information.  

Our areas of expertise include:

 

  • Adaptive and self-care skills

  • Attending and social referencing

  • Cognitive functioning

  • Community participation

  • Coping and tolerance skills

  • Emotional development

  • Family relationships

  • Language and communication

  • Play and leisure skills

  • Pre-academic skills

  • Safety skills

  • Self-advocacy and independence

  • Self-management

  • Social relationships

Anyone with developmental delays which prevent them from fully participating in the family, and/or community setting.

Intellectual disabilities (F71-F73, F88, F 80.82, F79),  Autism Spectrum Disorder (F84), Conduct Disorders (F91), and genetic diagnosis such as Down Syndrome, Angleman Syndrome, Fragile X...

 

Services Offered:  

 

 

  • Focused or Comprehensive in-clinic services.

  • Focused only on Telehealth services for executive functioning delays.

  • Group in-clinic therapy (children ages 9-13); after school hours 3:30 PM to 5:30 PM M-F  the focus is on increasing social communication skills and executive functioning.  Qualifying children must be able to follow directions, communicate needs/wants, be toilet trained, and refrain from aggressive behaviors. 

Referral Requirements:  



Referrals must come from the child’s physician and should include a behavioral screening tool conducted within the last year (ASQ-SE; PSC-17…).  

Some private insurance requires a recent Autism diagnostic report. 

Referral should state “ABA Therapy” or “ABA Therapy Group.”

What happens after a referral is received:  The family is contacted, and an intake packet is sent.  We then work with the family and physician to gather any additional information required as part of the assessment process (Education Plans, Medical Diagnostic Assessments, Mental Health History, etc). After the assessment, a determination of medical necessity and treatment plan is created. The client will either begin services with us, or we will help direct them toward more appropriate treatment.
