There are many things to consider when discussing intervention for Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).
We base our therapies on your child’s age and unique profile and strive to highlight their strengths and build up their weaknesses.
For group intervention and social-skill building, please check our group page here.
Early intervention for preschool-age children focuses on supporting families, skill-building, play therapy, building connectedness to others, behavioural intervention, emotions regulation, and developing language and communication skills.
For primary school age children with ASD, we focus on social connectedness, communication skills, anxiety and behaviour management and creating independence.
For adults with ASD, we will work on anxiety management, social connectedness, managing workplaces, relationships and difficulties with routines and sleep.
We offer a variety of therapy options to clients with ASD, determined by their age. These options will also provide our clients with the tools to manage many common themes seen throughout their lifelong development.
Anxiety, for example, is a common challenge for a person with autism throughout their lives. As such, we use a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), mindfulness and behavioural intervention to help manage anxiety with a different focus over different ages.
