We treat the individual.
Challenges are unique,
Treatment is unique to each child and family. Comprehensive assessment provides the framework for an intensive, individualized course of treatment that addresses not only developmental gaps, but the child’s unique history and skills. We develop treatment that addresses the core symptoms of autism to support children’s verbal and non-verbal communication, social-emotional relationships, and behavioral challenges.
At Prism we know many children with autism have co-occurring conditions. Some of these conditions may respond to behavioral interventions and may be directly related to autism (e.g. problematic sleeping patterns, lack of safety awareness, anxiety, compulsions, aggression, destruction, and uncooperative behavior). In most circumstances, these goals will be included in your child’s treatment plan to ensure meaningful outcomes for your family. Our goal is to foster everyday experiences such as a successful trip to the grocery store or doctor’s office, a peaceful family meal, or a joyful birthday party.
For all co-occurring conditions, Prism’s clinicians collaborate closely with all providers involved in your child’s care to ensure their safety as well as the most effective treatment possible.
