About our Shared Therapists
Similar to our full-time live-in therapists, our shared therapists provide therapy throughout the week, but they have two families that they work with. They work with one family for 3-4hrs per day, 5 days a week and another family for an additional 3-4hrs per day, 5 days a week. The shared therapist will either live with one of their families or nearby to both. We can only offer this option should there be another family interested in sessions that live near you.
Our experienced therapists are guided by their supervisors in creating Individual Educational Plans (IEP’s) to assist your child in all developmental areas.
All our programs include an initial program, various profiles to help manage a range of behaviors (challenging behaviors and sensory overload included) as well as ongoing child-specific training and feedback.
Empirical research states that families who receive respite and support experience decreased levels of stress and a higher rate of feeling equipped to manage their entire family unit.
Our therapists have training in various therapeutic modalities, such as ABA, Playtherapy, RDI and other. Some of our therapists have also completed courses in AAC, Makaton, Spelling to Communicate, to name a few. The therapists are all experienced in generalizing goals and targets from Speech and Language therapists, Occupational therapists and teachers at school to the home environment.
Who our shared therapists are for:
Families that only require a few hours of therapy a day for their child usually choose this option. The majority of our families start with full-time services (in-person or online) and then move to shared options (or less hours). If your child goes to school without a facilitator and needs an “extra hand” at home or a tutor for specific subjects, the shared option might be the best for your family.
