The AutPlay Therapy® program at NCDC is a behavioural and play based therapy model to working with children and families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder.
It integrates models of Play Therapy, Behavioural Therapy, as well as other models such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Modeling, Social Skills Training, and Parent Coaching in order to assist children and families in gaining skills and abilities to effectively function within their home, school, and community environments.
In particular, it is a structured session that involves interventions that focus on: emotional regulation, social functioning, and relationship connection. Other target treatment areas may be related to: anxiety, impulsivity, focus/attention, language, and sensory-processing.
Assessment and therapy in the family's home. Children on the autism spectrum are very different, one from the other, so I treat what I see rather than use a diagnosis as a basis for therapy. In other words, treatment is highly tailored to each specific child. The overall approach is based on the Floortime model.
We work with teens and adults with autism and other developmental disabilities and their families to improve their overall quality of life.
We teach skills to increase independence (life skills, social skills, emotional regulation, vocational skills)
We can assess contextually inappropriate behaviour and help develop a plan to reduce it and replace it with more appropriate behaviour.
