Services are available at our offices in Concord and Franklin, at schools, in clients’ homes, and at other community locations.

Our Autism Program for Children and Families provides a comprehensive, coordinated approach that helps children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) learn new skills and overcome a wide variety of developmental challenges.

The program includes the family, school, and other community supports to help the child and family learn, grow, and flourish.

Services are aimed at bringing about positive changes in behavior and are primarily based in the home and community. The clinical team is trained in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Comprehensive ABA programs have helped thousands of children with autism experience significant improvements in learning, reasoning, communication, and adaptability.

The Child Impact Program is a court-ordered educational seminar that helps parents understand the impact of divorce, separation and custody issues on children. Participants learn how children often respond to feelings of separation, loss and changing family roles. A strong emphasis is placed on helping parents appreciate how ongoing parental conflict negatively affects children. Parents are presented with alternative models of communication, along with skill-building in conflict resolution and problem-solving in an effort to help them more effectively co-parent.

The seminar consists of two 2-hour sessions and participants must attend both sessions.
