As a parent of a young child who has recently been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), you may be feeling confused, afraid, overwhelmed, and unsure about what to do next. It’s important for you to know that you are not alone. We understand and are here to help.
At Opya, our passion and focus is in providing comprehensive early intervention autism therapy to children 18 months old up to 6 years old. We help children diagnosed with autism learn the communication, social, and behavioral skills necessary to transition and be successful in a school setting.
The Opya approach is to deliver play-based intensive applied behavior analysis, or ABA therapy, in your home – your child’s natural everyday environment where they feel most comfortable and where their learning is most meaningful. ABA therapy is an evidence-based behavioral intervention that focuses on teaching communication, self-help, life skills, and social skills, as well as developing the behaviors your child will need to be successful in their young lives.
Depending on your child’s unique needs, Opya also offers a range of other therapeutic approaches designed to accompany ABA therapy, including:
- Speech Therapy – Speech therapy can help children diagnosed with autism develop critical communication skills, improve social interactions, and reduce problem behaviors.
- Occupational Therapy – Occupational therapy can help children living with autism improve motor skills and sensory processing, which can make everyday activities like eating, dressing, and playing much easier.
- Feeding Therapy – Feeding therapy can help children diagnosed with autism learn to eat and drink naturally, which is crucial for their overall health and development.
