SKILLS – Autism Therapy & Parent Enrichment (SKILLS – ATPE) was founded by autism professionals, advocates and parents that saw the gap and need in a true behavior intervention that is based on person centered, family driven and culturally responsive treatment plans that fit the child and the family’s needs.
We wholeheartedly believe that families are our best and greatest assets. Here at SKILLS–ATPE, parents/families are equal partners in every aspect of their child’s treatments and services. At SKILLS – ATPE, parents and families are at the decision making table for the skills and the therapy that will be provided to their child. We consider and include the family’s cultural background as well as what challenges and concerns they have in the implementation of the individual treatment plan (ITP). We understand autism is a very complex medical condition and want to make it easy and smooth for our families and clients. In addition, SKILLS – ATPE coordinates with the child’s other services, such as county, education, speech, occupational therapy as well as community resources that the child is accessing.
We teach each individual to their best outcome and full potential while enriching parents and families. We thank you for your interest and welcome you to our comprehensive and holistic programs and services.
