Autism Care & Support provides a therapeutic foundation built on a solution-focused and family systems model. Our multidisciplinary team develops treatment plans utilizing individualized therapeutic strategies involving some of the following:
- Experiential-based strategies
- Social integration
- Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA)
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
- Motivational interviewing
- Collaborative problem solving
In addition to supporting our clients, we support our families in the growth and development of their relationship with their loved one through interactive program components. Each level of the program has a set of requirements that individuals and their family complete before moving forward to the next level. Each level also has specific privileges which the resident may enjoy once he has reached it.
Who do we treat at Autism Care & Support?
The Autism Care & Support Program accepts adult males (18+) who have Autism Spectrum Disorder and have not achieved or sustained the level of social, academic, occupational, employment, and family function desired. Pasadena Villa Psychiatric Treatment Network has a 20-year history of effectively treating individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder, and Autism Care & Support is an extension of that evidence-based treatment. We use a natural environment to engage individuals in evidence-based activities and strategies, in conjunction with Pasadena Villa’s Social Integration Model™, that allows for an improvement in social functioning.
