Our Treatment Approach for ASD
As clinicians who are bound to provide evidence-based practice to all of our clients, we strive to provide the most comprehensive evaluation to determine the needs of each client. From there, our team collaborates to build a treatment plan that considers the unique needs of each individual student.
We study all theories of behavior and cognitive development and utilize the treatment protocols (such as Applied Behavior Analysis) derived from those theories as a tool to meet the unique needs of each client and their family. One modality may provide critical monitoring of behavior reduction, while the other is more effective at reaching the deficit areas of autism for cognitive acquisition. For example, the parents may receive counseling and consultation sessions with our licensed clinicians focusing on anxiety and adjustment to an autism diagnosis, while their child may receiving intensive ABA by a behavior technician for skill acquisition and behavior management.
It is best practice to stay on top of this research in order to best serve our clients. Therefore, at The Hope Source, our Dynamic Twelve: Autism Developmental Deficit Assessment reflects what researchers have determined are areas of deficit.
