As part of the ongoing services, The Autism Project will provide curriculum preparation and upkeep,
workshops with therapists working with the family, and will loan teaching materials as needed. It will be
the responsibility of the family to locate and hire needed therapists. The Autism Project will collaborate
with the hired therapists and conduct regular meetings to update progress and plan new treatment
goals. These consultations are scheduled every 8 weeks but can be done more frequently if desired.
These services include our participation in IEP development, assisting with modification and
accommodations identified in the IEP, and attending IEP meetings or researching school placements.
These highly individualized services are designed for family members and caretakers of individuals on
the Autism Spectrum. Basic behavior principles, strategies for enhancing communication, sensory
integration techniques and visual systems are some of the areas covered. Family training sessions may
be done individually or in a group format. Services can be provided in the students home.
Parent Support Groups
The parent socials are a new addition to our program. We give parents the opportunity to gather
together to offer support and guidance to one another while we provide respite for their children at our
center. The respite time will be filled with structured social activities to further enhance development.
Sibling Support Groups
Siblings of students are invited to attend socials that are arranged once a month. These meetings focus
on providing a place for siblings to connect with each other through shared life experiences. This is a
place they can freely express both the joys and the frustrations they experience with a family member
with autism on a daily basis. We also offer a siblings camp for one week in the summer.
|Note To Parents
We consider the families of our students to be our
greatest assets because they are the ones who know
their child the best. We hold your opinion in high
regard. Please feel free to educate us about your child
the more we know, the more we are able to help
