Connections Autism Services
Children with autism deserve respect.
We will delight in your child as s/he is. With this positive regard, we help you teach to your child’s unique strengths and needs.
Encouragement is paramount.
Our praise as your child learns new skills is enthusiastic and heartfelt. We celebrate your child’s efforts, as well as yours.
Behavior is often a form of communication.
Your child is telling you something: that s/he needs attention, or that something’s too hard or overwhelming, etc. We help you figure out the message, and build your child’s communication skills.
Parents are key.
Your relationship with your child is central to their progress. We teach you to interact with your child in ways that build genuine social and communication skills.
