Traditional therapies are available and the programs over overseen by an on-site BCBA.
Our ASP is intended for kids on the autism spectrum ages 7 - 13. Each child is paired with a BHT or RBT to work a program tailored to the child while socializing with peers. The kiddos practice daily living skills such as meal prep, cleaning the kitchen, taking care of a bedroom in the mock "hotel" as well as games and group arts and crafts.
