Improving social, academic and communication skills
Known as the 'gold standard' therapy for Autism Spectrum Disorder. ABA helps us understand how behaviour works, how our environment influences our behaviour (situational factors), and how learning occurs. The main goal of ABA is to teach helpful skills and decrease defiant behaviours that may be harmful to others/ourselves. ABA can also assist with developing good language and communication skills; help those with ADHD and/or ASD improve attention, focus, social skills, self-help skills and memory; and assist with decreasing problematic behaviours.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Collaborative and Practical
CBT is a credible and reliable treatment method that helps patients understand the tridirectional/integral relationship between our feelings (emotions), actions (behaviours), and thoughts (cognition). On this premise, negative and unrealistic thoughts can lead to distress, substantially impacting our relationships and mental wellbeing. Empirical evidence has shown that CBT is effective for treating various mental health conditions including depression, anxiety disorders, OCD, phobias, PTSD, and substance abuse (e.g., alcohol or drugs). CBT helps patient to acknowledge negative thinking patterns and their impacts, helping to stop them at their tracks and increase mindfulness and self-awareness. Directly addressing this tridirectional/integral relationship can help prevent the escalation of mental health conditions and provide therapy to help overcome mental struggles.
Understanding the school experience
Conducted inconspicuously, a school observation can assess a child's social behaviours, school readiness skills, academic skills and classroom participation. School observations help parents and teachers better understand how to support a child in the classroom. Whether its following a big change such as changing of schools/curriculum, new teacher or simply transitioning up a year, understanding how to support your child can ease academic stress, improve social emotional wellbeing and strength school perception.
