Talking about services related to the Autism Spectrum is complicated. We recognize that trying to capture a broad range of individuals under this one label is impossible. Our goal is to work with individuals; labels aside. We will work with the full array of strengths and challenges that present themselves with a clear goal of increasing that individual's access to the fullest life experience possible.
Social Relationship Groups
The "Connections" Program is based on the "Social Thinking" work of Michelle Garcia Winner. These groups are designed to help participants gain important skills in perspective taking and using social cognition to have more satisfying interpersonal relationships at work, at home or at school. Groups will be run serving children and youth ages 6-14
The "Pathways Program" is a goal-oriented coaching program designed to help participants ages 16-26 identify and work on meeting specific goals related to critical life skills.

Behavioral Consultation and Skills Development Services
We are aware that when many people hear the term Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) they get nervous and think about rats in mazes, clickers and old men in lab coats. This is an unfortunate association. ABA is in fact built on the following foundation:
Our services are designed to increase a broad set of skills that will allow an individual to engage more fully in their family, school or community life and decrease behaviors that are problematic or limit access to important activities or environments.
Good Behavioral consultation begins with a strong relationship. It is within this kind of relationship that we can foster the kind of close collaboration that is required to identify clear goals and agree upon interventions that fit the needs of the client, the family, the school, and the community.
If you are interested in any of these services please contact us. We start groups when we have enough interested participants within age groupings so even if we are not running a group now let us know you would be interested.
