According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Autistic Spectrum Disorders occur in 1 out of every 68 children.
Being a parent seeking help for your child with an autistic spectrum disorder can be a very overwhelming experience. The challenge you face is to decide how to best help your child given the myriad of choices out there.
What is the best way to help your child?
There is no single approach that works for all individuals, The most effective approaches address the whole child, while empowering and supporting the family.
No two individuals present with the same symptoms or situation. Consequently, what may be effective for one child may not work for another. It takes a skilled practitioner to thoroughly assess an individual within the various settings that child functions within and create an approach that meets that child’s need as well as those of the family.
Our approach to autistic spectrum disorders can include:
- supporting the child and family
- relationship based interventions
- behavioral approaches
- social skills development
- consultation to schools
- case management to help connect to and work with other providers
