At KidsLink, we recognize how multiple settings impact the development and behavior of children with special needs. We strive to promote collaboration among the home, school and community-based settings as we provide comprehensive services to children with autism and other developmental disabilities. In addition, we embrace an interdisciplinary approach to intervention, including collaboration among medical professionals, mental health professionals, speech and language pathologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, educators, and related services personnel, as deemed appropriate to meet the comprehensive needs of our child patients and their families.
When providing treatment to children and families, we implement only those interventions for which there exists scientific evidence to support their effectiveness and utility. This primarily includes the implementation of medical, behavioral and cognitive-behavioral approaches to treatment. We are also committed to ongoing progress monitoring and observation so we are better able to determine if the child’s behavior is changing as a result of intervention.
