What is the Autism Spectrum Disorder and how can it affect my child?
Often times children and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder have difficulty learning how to put words together to form meaningful sentences. Speech For Life Therapy Center integrates the Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) approach and the Links To Language approach into it's therapeutic techniques. This integration brings about the most amazing life changing results for both the child and parent/family of the child who has Autism. The Applied Behavioral Analysis approach helps children learn how to control their behavior and enables them to learn in a highly structured environment. The Links To Language therapy model is heavily language loaded and teaches practical language skills in a systematic way in which children can learn how to use language in a motivating, not frustrating way.
The founding director of Speech For Life Therapy Center, Inc. knows Autism well, as her child has this very difficult disorder. Speech For Life, knows and understands from first hand and personal experience what parents with children/adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders experience on a daily and life basis and what hope they have for their child's future. The parent becomes an intricate part of the therapeutic process. Parents are taught speech and language learning skills needed to help their child in the home. Home living is discussed and a real plan for working with your child in the home is implemented immediately. Parental/family/teacher and physician teamwork is a vital part of your child's success. At Speech For Life Therapy Center, Inc., a team approach is used.
