Autism Treatment/Therapy

Treatment

Research shows that early diagnosis and appropriate evidence-based autism interventions offer a child diagnosed on the autism spectrum the best opportunity to achieve their maximum potential. Services are based upon a child’s individual needs and may include behavioral therapy, individual therapy, or group interventions as well as other services to help a child communicate, interact with others, and develop independent living skills.

Evidence-based interventions are those that have undergone rigorous research and review, have been replicated and have consistently demonstrated positive outcomes for children, youth, and/or young adults with autism. Some evidence-based autism interventions include: Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA therapy), Cognitive Behavioral Intervention, Speech/Language Therapy, Social Skills Training and Visual Supports. TAP partners provide evidence-based autism treatment/therapy that addresses a child’s unique strengths and challenges.
