Autism Therapy Services

At Opya, we understand that there is no cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all approach to treating children diagnosed with autism. With this in mind, we offer a broad array of autism therapy services that we tailor to meet the needs of the child in your care.

From speech and occupational therapy to help your child better communicate and function, to applied behavior analysis to address problem behaviors, our autism therapy services are designed to make a real difference in your child’s life. In addition, we offer family support services to help you and your loved ones better understand and support your child’s condition.

Whether you are a parent seeking support for your child diagnosed with autism or a healthcare provider who would like to refer a child in your care, Opya can help. Among the specific therapeutic approaches we offer are:

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)

ABA is a scientific approach to understanding behavior and learning. It is based on the premise that all behavior has a purpose or consequence and that desired behaviors can be taught through positive reinforcement. ABA has been shown to be a particularly effective treatment for autism, helping children develop new skills and reduce problem behaviors. This is particularly true when treatment begins before the age of six.

Opya is proud to be a premier provider of ABA therapy services for children diagnosed with autism. Our team of experienced and certified ABA therapists will work with your child to help them develop new skills and reduce problem behaviors.

Speech Therapy

One of the most important autism therapy services we offer at Opya is speech therapy. Speech therapy can help children diagnosed with autism develop communication skills, improve social interaction, and reduce problem behaviors.

In addition, speech therapy can help to improve a child’s quality of life in a broader sense. Studies have shown that children who receive speech therapy are more likely to be employed and have better social relationships than those who do not. Children who begin speech therapy early are also more likely to successfully integrate into an elementary school program, which is one of our main goals at Opya.

Occupational Therapy

Autism is a developmental disorder that affects a person’s ability to communicate and interact with others. It can also cause problems with sensory processing, making it difficult for a person to process information from the world around them.

Because of these difficulties, children diagnosed with autism may have difficulty participating in activities of daily living, such as dressing themselves, eating, or playing. Occupational therapy can help improve a child’s ability to participate in these activities by teaching them skills such as how to dress themselves, use utensils, and play with toys.

In addition, occupational therapy can also help reduce problem behaviors associated with autism. By teaching children coping and problem-solving skills, occupational therapists can help to reduce meltdowns, tantrums, and self-injurious behaviors.

Overall, occupational therapy is an essential part of autism treatment because it can help children develop the skills they need to participate in activities of daily living and reduce problem behaviors.

Our Multidisciplinary Approach

Because every child diagnosed with autism is different, therapists must employ treatment solutions that take the child’s unique circumstances into account. At Opya, we pride ourselves on our multidisciplinary approach to autism therapy, which draws on the expertise of a variety of professionals, including occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, and behavior analysts.

This comprehensive approach allows us to develop an individualized treatment plan for each child in our care. Our ultimate goal is to help your child reach their full potential and lead a happy, healthy, and fulfilling life.
