1:1 Sessions

Patients participate in drills related to communication, play and social skills. These sessions help to maintain or increase wanted behaviors or minimize unwanted behavior.

Parent Training Sessions

Parents and caregivers must understand the importance of the treatment plan, data collection, and awareness of any behavioral changes/concerns presented before, during, or after treatment.

Peer/Group Sessions

During these sessions the child learns skills such as participating, interacting, communicating and playing with others in order to increase social emotional development.

School/Community Sessions

This treatment encourages participants and families to join other families in their school or community for instruction on how to increase independence, safety and integration into life outside the home.
