Our staff will use a variety of specialized approaches and combinations of strategies depending on what works for your child's specific needs. Some of these include:
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)
This approach uses a combination of positive reinforcement, repetition and prompting to facilitate skill development for children with autism and developmental disabilities.
Developmental, Individual-Difference, Relationship-Based/Floortime (DIR)
This approach focuses on helping children master the building blocks of relating to others, communicating and thinking through understanding the child's perspective, breaking challenges into small components and problem solving in real life situations.
Based on the sensory needs of a child, sensory diets can be developed under the guidance of our occupational therapists. This can assist with internal organization so that a child is better able to benefit from play, learning activities and participation in daily routines.
Training programs are offered periodically for parents.
