Uniquely Tailored Interventions
Therapy should be individualized to match unique needs. Gather and Grow Therapy Services offers an equally unique lens through which to honor differences, harness strengths, and build capacity.
We don't believe in a one-size-fits all approach. As Dr. Stephen Shore is famously quoted, "If you've met one person with autism, you've met one person with autism."
In one-on-one sessions, we work to develop and practice the skills you or your child needs in the context of a safe environment. We use a blended approach of highly effective, evidence-based interventions following principles of applied behavioral analysis (ABA). Emphasis is placed upon solidifying root capacities for learning.
Social Skills Groups
Social groups are matched based upon age and developmental level as well as personality and preferences. This step is vital to ensuring that each person gets the most out of these sessions. The unique way that we match clients yields social motivation, and most importantly increases the likelihood that the group would develop authentic relationships. That's why we call them Friendship Groups.
The work we do within the context of therapy is invaluable to our clients and their families. However, it is limited without carryover. That is why we assemble a tribe of support. Through communication and collaboration, we build relationships with significant persons to optimize therapeutic outcomes. From parents to siblings, friends, teachers, other providers, classmates, coworkers, etc., all are welcome as we embark upon this exciting journey together.
We have to know what to say (i.e., content), and how to say it (i.e.,
articulation, grammar). But that's only half of the battle. We also have
to know when (i.e., context, reading social cues), and why (i.e., social
obligation, information exchange, building connection).
