We Are Here For Your Whole Family
KGH understands that autism, and related special needs, doesn't impact just one person in the family. We believe success depends on the entire family feeling empowered and supported. That's why our services embrace the family as a whole. Research tells us that parents who are trained and taught specific skills see a dramatic improvement in their child’s behavior compared to parents who are just informed about their child’s behavior (Lecavalier, 2015). KGH offers family support services to all members of the family including parents, caregivers, siblings, and extended family. We provide individualized and evidence-based consultation, education, support, and coaching on issues related to communication, challenging behavior, play, safety skills, and more. We will work with you to make sure that the skills your child learns in therapy not only transfer from our therapists to your family, but also from the therapy setting into your home and community. Parent coaching sessions can occur in the clinic, home, community, or wherever you need us.
