Autism Services

Helping a child with autism achieve her language goals can be a journey full of challenges and hope.
We are here to help your child thrive.

Getting Started

We begin with a simple question: what brought you here? The signs of autism may already be familiar to you. You may have noticed difficulties with attention, poor eye contact, minimal interest in being social, repetitive phrasings and behaviors, or lack of speech. Perhaps your child has received a diagnosis of autism and you are looking for ways to help him achieve his educational goals. Whatever your reasoning may be, we are here to help.

Our Approach

We focus on building skills that will improve your child’s ability engage more fully and effectively with language. We build skills related to morphology (word formation), semantics (meaning), syntax (sentence-building), and pragmatics (social use of language). We emphasize the child’s ability to use language both as a means of expression and as a tool for understanding and communicating in both spoken and written contexts.

Step One

We begin our work by learning about your child’s developmental history, paying particular attention to your own observations. We will pair your observations with our own, particularly as we assess issues related to sensory engagement with the environment and thought patterns. Finally, we will do a thorough assessment of your child through direct interaction. This initial assessment, and our communication with you, will give us a good understanding of where we need to begin our journey together.

Empowering You

In everything we do, we strive to empower you and your family as you navigate the landscape of rights, responsibilities, and resources. Our experience with both direct practice and educational policy will help us empower you you navigate the Individualized Education Plan (IEP) process, seek resources, and understand the laws that pertain to you and your family. We can help you discover what accommodations and modifications may be available to your family and serve as companions to you on your journey.
