Our Individual Therapy Services
KGH offers innovative and comprehensive individual therapy services for infants, toddlers, and children with autism. We provide evidence-based therapy, consultation, education, support, and empowerment for children and their families.
KGH provides a comprehensive approach to therapy and offers applied behavior analysis (ABA), speech therapy, occupational therapy, mental health services, social groups, and parent education and empowerment. We can address issues related to eating, sleeping, toileting, challenging behavior, functional language, social skills, safety skills, play and leisure skills, and self-care skills. Therapy sessions can occur in our center, home, community, school, daycare, summer camp, or wherever you need us.
Our ABA program can be offered as either comprehensive or focused and uses the science of behavior analysis to address and remediate the core deficits or issues associated with an autism diagnosis; for example, communication, play, safety skills, and more. Our goal is to teach your child the necessary skills to become an active, natural learner who benefits from a classroom environment. Research has shown that children with autism and related special needs who receive early, individualized ABA intervention have a greater chance of future success.
