Our Goals

We use effective interventions to accelerate learning

  • Our goal is for our clients to catch up with typically developing peers
  • We maintain the child’s motivation and interest in learning by providing therapy in a highly reinforcing environment – we make learning fun!

Teaching functional language is our top priority

  • Many of the children who we work with have delays in communicating their wants and needs, as well as engaging in social language with others.
  • A great amount of research shows that problem behaviors can be significantly reduced through functional communication training.

Our treatment is evidence-based

  • Our interventions are based on scientific principles and published research findings.
  • Simply stated, we do what has been demonstrated to be effective in the treatment of autism and developmental disabilities.

We work closely with parents and family members

  • Research as shown that parent training and collaboration is essential to the child’s success in therapy.
  • We believe that parents are the most important members of the child’s treatment team.

Our treatment plans…

  • Are based on the careful assessment of the child’s current educational needs.
  • Provide errorless learning. We utilize the principles of shaping and fading to support every child’s skill development throughout the treatment process.
  • Are individualized to each child’s specific needs and skill level.
  • Emphasize the generalization of skills learned in therapy to the home, school and community settings.
  • Teach and reinforce the essential skills for independence and success.
