Welcome Friends and Family
Each month, a team of our professionals will produce an informational video geared toward specific topics related to Autism Spectrum Disorder. Our goal is to help bridge the gap between our patients' stay with us and the transition back into the home environment. Also, we hope to empower families and our patients, and to provide tools that makes that transition successful. We encourage all family members and other natural support individuals to view these monthly presentations to become more in tune with how children and adolescents with autism relate and function in our world.
Look for our educational videos on the 2nd Saturday of each month. After you view the video, we will then give you the opportunity to ask questions specific to the presentation via email with each month’s presenter and the topic.
