The first and most important step in your family’s journey is understanding how your child experiences the world around them. The behaviors that a person engages in or exhibits is simply a response to their environment, this is why we must spend a large amount of time getting to know the world as your child sees, hears, and feels it. The best way for us to do this is by conducting statistically valid assessments that may include direct observation of your child or interviews with caregivers and family members.
The primary question to ask yourself during the goal setting and treatment planning step is what does life look like for my child as an adult? We recommend breaking it down into three definite phases of growth:

A key part of the treatment process is the amount of time your child is able to spend working on meeting their goals in a 1 on 1 setting. The full treatment plan which includes, assessment findings, child specific goals, and caregiver goals are sent to your insurance to request approval to conduct 1 on 1 treatment, caregiver training and re-assessments as outlined in the plan. Based on what the insurance approves, a schedule is created to maximize the approved time they allow for treatment.
