We pride ourselves in highly-customized therapy. Have a lover of red-cars or a particular character? We’ll incorporate your child’s interests into his or her therapy program.
It is our belief that there is not a “one-size-fits-all” action plan that works for kids on the spectrum.
Rather, we believe that it is our responsibility as therapists to design and implement a customized medley of communication approaches which emphasize your child’s strengths and support his/her weaknesses to support the end goal: Robust Communication Skills.
We work alongside parents to collaboratively develop a therapy plan. Once developed, we introduce concepts and skills via play-based therapy techniques. An emphasis is placed on home programs and parent/caregiver training.
The following principles may be incorporated into your child’s therapy plan:
- Communication of basic wants & needs
- Verbal Language
- Sign Language
- Pictures/Visual Supports
- Augmentative Alternative Communication
- Social Pragmatics
- Social Stories
- Video Modeling
- Visual Supports
- Peer Interaction
- Play-based therapy
- Develop Joint Attention
- Conversational Skills
- Perspective Taking
- Generalization of newly learned skills outside of the therapy environment
- Parent/Caregiver Training
- Home Programs/Materials for practice
- Teacher Trainings/Classroom Consultations
