Developmental DIR Autism Therapy in Your Home!!!

Why choose us?  In a program such as ours the child learns to think reflectively and base behaviors on their own desires and feelings rather then on repetitiously learned non-reflective patterns of behavior.  We work from a multi-disaplinary perspective considering functional language use, visual-spatial processing, auditory processing and motor function.
