A therapy intensive may be recommended for your child in order to maximize the effects of treatment. In a treatment intensive the frequency, intensity, and duration of therapy are increased over a relatively short period of time. Typically, a child is seen for 1 ½ hours in each of 3-4 consecutive days. Research has found this to be an effective and “intensive” model of intervention. Often this is a good choice if a child seems to have plateaued or needs a “jump start.” This is also a good option for clients who have to travel a long distance to the clinic. A home program is given at the end of the intensive with a follow up plan.
We are currently transitioning everyone to telehealth to continue your childs care during this crisis. You can learn more about our Telehealth option by clicking here!

"For me, and I think I can safely speak for my staff, there is no greater feeling than helping a child to feel understood and helping a parent to better relate to their child. We help families to understand their child. It is in that knowing and understanding of a child’s individual differences that meaning can be found behind all behaviors." Sharron Donnelly, Owner
