Children's Services

“Within every living child exists the most precious bud of self-identity. To search this out and foster it with loving care; that is the essence of educating an autistic child.”

-Dr. Kiyo Kitahara 

Our treatment team provides services dedicated to:

 

  • A family-centered approach. 

  • Strength-based service plan for children in their home and community.

  • Therapeutic relationship with parents or guardians in support of the child's development.

  • Providing culturally competent, responsive services.

“Colton’s PASS worker is just wonderful.  Her youth and energy bonds them.  She means the world to me.  I consider her part of the family.  Her bond with Colton and myself is so special.  I tell her all the time this is her second home.  I don’t know what we would do without her.  She completes our family.”   

-Marrietta O., Grandmother of Colton A.
