What Programs are Available for Children with Autism?
We recognize that the needs of individuals on the Autism Spectrum can be unique, which is why in addition to our full range of counseling services, we offer programs specifically designed for children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder through on-site and mobile services. We utilize treatments grounded in research, delivered by Master’s Level Clinicians who are trained in Applied Behavioral Analysis. Individuals are assessed and placed into services that best meet their specific needs and goals. Our services can be delivered in the home, community and schools, both individually or in group settings.
The Amazing Kids Club (Hanover and Red Lion locations)
The Amazing Kids Club is a year-round, on-site therapeutic program for children and adolescents from 2 to 21 years of age with Autism Spectrum Disorder or Social Pragmatic Communication Disorder. The program focuses on developing communication, socialization and play skills in a less intense environment than one-on-one strategies and is designed as either a stand-alone program or a supplement to other forms of treatment.
The program is a combination of behavioral and relationship therapy strategies and our highly trained Master’s Level Clinicians design treatment plans to meet the developmental needs of each individual. Family involvement and service coordination is a key component of our programs. We offer Pre-School and After School sessions, as well as an 11-week specialized therapeutic summer day program.
Home and Community-Based Services (Adams and York counties, and Harrisburg area)
Our intensive program helps youth and their families to stabilize behaviors and transfer those behavior management skills to their natural support system.
School-Based Therapy Services (Within many school districts across Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Fulton and York counties)
Our programs offer students an opportunity to meet with therapists either on an outpatient basis (by appointment), or on a more integrated basis, where the therapist works as part of a therapeutic emotional support classroom.
