Once your family’s needs are assessed, our team of amazing therapists will work together with you to draw up a treatment plan that focuses on developmentally appropriate goals. Current IEP plans are useful in helping set these goals . These goals are not set in stone and will change as your child progresses in treatment.
Through your child’s individualized plan, therapists will emphasize functional skills and behaviors that promote independence and achieve success. ABA will be utilized as the core of all treatment plans to help achieve desired goals, supported by other services.
