There is no one “right” way to help your child with autism. While there are common therapies that are used, each family needs to decide what is best for them. All interventions can be used at any point in a child’s life, and some may be used more than once over a lifetime. Developing goals with your therapeutic and educational team is key to maximizing your time with them.
Additionally, “more therapy” is not always the answer. Looking at your child’s capacity and stamina, family limits, and financial considerations all may play into your decision on choosing which therapy (or therapies) to use as well as frequency.
Please visit pages 16-18 in the guidebook for definitions of each of the following therapy types. Note that many centers are multi-modal, and have more than one type of therapy available.
