The Dynamic Twelve (D12) Model
Here at The Hope Source, our behavioral therapy focuses on building competence in the twelve areas that have the greatest impact on cognition and social and emotional well-being. The D12 Model is the core of our approach to Autism treatment and is what differentiates us from traditional ABA therapy.
