When a child is diagnosed with Autism, it suggests the child has more skill deficits or inappropriate behaviors than a speech therapist (SLP) and/or occupational therapist (OT) can address. They won’t provide enough treatment nor are they experts in addressing the areas children with ASD need help with. These areas can include but are not limited to problem behaviors, rigidity, play skills, and social skills.
The data collection aspect of other therapies is usually less systematic and sometimes non-existent which can make progress difficult to pinpoint. ABA therapy collects and uses data for this very reason.
If your child is receiving speech or occupational therapy services from another provider, we are happy to collaborate with them in order to provide a comprehensive treatment plan.
