Working One-to-one with Your Child Teaching Them Skills to Become the Best Version of Themself
Children spend the majority of their day in a structured school environment and then come home to an entirely different one. At home, the dynamic and expectations change. This is why we often hear conflicting information from caregivers like "they never act like this at school" or "they only do this at home". The transition from school to the ever-changing variables at home can be challenging for any child, especially for those diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, as well as the parent. Difficulty with this transition emerges as negative behaviors that can interfere with the rest of the day's simple routines. Behavioral challenges, underdeveloped self-help skills, communication, and language barriers all compound to create an unstable environment that will not foster learning and development.
So what can you do? Modify the home environment to provide structure and consistency with sessions that teach them new skills and behaviors.
The home is where children are able to learn the most. It's their most comfortable environment, filled with all their favorite belongings, where they've created most of their memories and experiences, and family interactions. Consistency in routine and expectations will provide the strong foundation they need to be able to reach their maximum potential.
Strategic Therapy helps you achieve a balance so that the time you and your child spend at home is optimized with meaningful, stress-free quality time.
Effective communication is how we as humans are able to express ourselves. It's how we build relationships, and how we ask for things that we need. Being able to understand each other is an essential skill that effects every facet of our life, including our behavior. Helping your child develop an effective means of communication is our priority.
Daily Living Skills
From the time they wake up until the time they go to sleep, your child is faced with a variety of challenging activities that do not come easy to perform. Our daily living skills programs focus on teaching your child the basic skills that they need to navigate through their day. By breaking these routines into small achievable steps, your child will be able to make strides towards independently caring for themselves.
We recognize that social interaction is a critical part of your child's development. Seeing your child laughing and playing with same aged peers and being apart of a group. It's also where they learn from watching their peers and form relationships. Our social skills programs will provide those opportunities and guide them each step of the way.
Children with autism spectrum disorder have underdeveloped skills which can cause frustration and anger that is demonstrated through challenging behaviors. This can be extremely difficult for parents to manage on their own. Know that you're not alone. Our team will use behavior modification techniques and strategies that are proven to be effective in reducing those challenging behaviors.
