Autism Services For Kids With Autism

Autism Treatment and Care Services For Kids With Autism

The Pingree Center seeks to treat and support every individual on the spectrum. We have put together comprehensive programs and services available for children with autism, that aim to improve and benefit the lives of each client and their parents in socially significant ways.

What Are Our Autism Services?

Pingree Center offers a variety of solutions and autism treatments for children and families who have autism, such as ABA therapy and many other autism services.

There are many ways to help minimize the symptoms and maximize abilities. People who have ASD have the best chance of using all of their abilities and skills if they receive appropriate therapies and interventions.

The most effective therapies and interventions are often different for each person. However, most people with ASD respond best to highly structured and specialized programs. In some cases, treatment can help people with autism to function at near-normal levels.

Research shows that early diagnosis and interventions, such as during preschool or before, are more likely to have major positive effects on symptoms and later skills. Read more about early interventions for autism.

There can be overlap in symptoms between ASD and other disorders, such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), it’s important that treatment focuses on a person’s specific needs, rather than the diagnostic label.

  • Early intervention
  • Educational and school-based therapies

  • Parent-mediated therapy

Our Key A Services Children and Kids with Autism

  • School Transition- The Carmen B. Pingree Center will ensure that your child is ready for the transition from Pingree to another treatment setting or school environment. Our goal is to prepare your child for a less restrictive environment and provide them with the tools to be successful.
  • Autism Screening- The Pingree Center assists in diagnosing autism spectrum disorder (ASD) through a number of screening tests and more structured and formal evaluations. For more information, please contact us.
  • School K – 12- Although we are a center of learning, the Pingree Center is not a typical educational environment. We are a specialized day treatment facility, that provides evidence based treatment and services to children diagnosed with autism. We use strategies based in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), and use BCBA’s (Board Certified Behavioral Analysts) to guide treatment.
  • Parent Educational Services every month- The Carmen B. Pingree Autism Center of Learning, believes that learning and collaboration with parents/caregivers is essential to every child’s growth and development. We recognize the integral role parents and families have with every aspect of their child’s treatment including goal development, treatment, and progress monitoring. We provide ongoing training to families, to ensure families feel confident in how to address challenges and learning opportunities with their children.
  • Adolescent Expansion- During adolescence, young individuals experience numerous changes as they transition from childhood into young adulthood. These changes include physical, behavioral, cognitive, and emotional-social development. The Pingree Center is there to ensure no individual is left feeling uncomfortable during this natural transition. Treatment is tailored to address the onset of maturation and meet each individuals unique needs as they navigate through developmental changes.

Our ABA Therapy Approach

At the Pingree Center, we use strategies based in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) as the primary treatment approach for individuals diagnosed with ASD. ABA is evidence based, and has become widely accepted among healthcare professionals, schools, and treatment clinics.

ABA uses an approach that evaluates the functional relationship between the environment and an individual’s behavior, to determine the function of the behavior (or the “why” behind it). It focuses on encouraging, and reinforcing, positive and socially acceptable behavior of clients, and finding functional alternatives for less desirable or maladaptive behavior. This, over time, improves an individual’s skill set to respond appropriately to a variety of people and across different social settings.

Our ABA therapy uses an approach that evaluates the functional relationship between the environment and the individual’s behavior. This helps us understand how an individual’s behavior works in real situations and determine the “why” behind their behavior.

ABA therapy focuses on encouraging and reinforcing positive and socially acceptable behaviors of clients. It also helps find functional alternatives for less desirable or maladaptive behavior.

The amazing thing about ABA therapy is that it can be adapted to meet the needs of each unique person. ABA therapy also increases language and communication skills. Improves attention, focus, social skills, memory and academics and decreases problematic behavior. Over time it will improve an individual’s skill set to respond appropriately to a variety of people across different social settings.
