The developmental, relationship-based treatment approach is accomplished through a combination of educational, sensory-motor, communication, psycho-dynamic and family systems interventions.
The children attend school five days per week, in small language-rich classes, with a 1:2 staff: student ratio and a dedicated multi-disciplinary team of special education teachers and therapists.
All parents participate in family therapy, as well as a weekly parent group.
School-based occupational and speech therapy are also provided as needed.
