Applied Behavior Analysis
Cognitive Behavior Therapy
Approximately 50% of Autistic young people also meet criteria for at least 1 anxiety disorder. Mental health conditions add significant negative impact to these individuals lives. Although great strides have been made in early identification & intervention and availability of evidence-based behavioral treatments (e.g., ABA therapy) is growing, addressing associated mental health challenges continues to be a need. When it comes to treatments for Anxiety, OCD, and related conditions, CBT is a powerful tool and there is growing consensus in the literature that individuals with ASD benefit from these interventions as well. However, there is also general agreement one must understand their unique profile and make appropriate adjustments to the CBT toolkit to allow them to fully access the intervention. By offering an individually-tailored behavior therapy approach and placing an emphasis on establishing a respectful and collaborative relationship with clients and their support systems, we strive to help individuals overcome barriers and make meaningful steps towards a fulfilling, productive life.
