Therapy at SAA is relationship based and dynamic to meet the complex needs of children, teens and adults with social, communication, and behavioral challenges including Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome and other related disorders as well as developmental disorders, non-verbal learning disabilities and Attention Deficit Disorders. While the majority of therapy is individual, SAA also creates dyads and groups when possible and therapeutically indicated.
We seek to remediate the core areas of need so that clients can feel competent not only in their therapy sessions, but also in their relationships with family and friends and in the communities in which they work and play. In fact this is one of the primary goals of all therapy: to make our clients independent, functioning, happy people in all areas of their lives.
We continuously strive to create dynamic learning opportunities to help clients navigate the opportunities and challenges offered each day. After careful analysis of their strengths and needs, a customized plan for intervention is developed. This intervention plan provides clear goals and objectives so that all members of the client’s family can be a part of and support change.
At Sweeney Augustin and Associates we believe in change, in the ability of clients to be active participants in their therapy and including family whenever appropriate.
