EARLY CHILDHOOD

We provide services for our littlest learners.

PLS works with many families of children who are newly diagnosed with autism. Getting this news might be a relief for some, but for others, it can be hard on the entire family. When parents come to us, we help them with understanding the ins and outs of what it means to be autism parents. They lean on us for things like how to foster understanding and acceptance with grandparents and teachers and how to see hope in each unique situation.

Early, intensive intervention in the form of applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy is the best approach for treating the symptoms of autism as well as improving independence, functioning and family life overall.

Behaviors that the PLS treatment team might identify and treat include:

  • Tantrums
  • Defiance/Task Refusal
  • Difficulty Transitioning
  • Physical Aggression
  • Self-Stimulatory Behaviors that interfere with learning
  • Difficulty Attending (Paying Attention)
  • Self-Injury
  • Toileting/Self Care
  • Parenting Skills for Challenging Behaviors
