Autism in the St. Louis Area
Treating NeuroDivergent Clients
We are happy to offer a program to support families and adults or children who are neurodivergent, otherwise known as Autism Spectrum Disorder [ASD].
We believe that it is important to treat the whole person and support the family, as well. We believe that this diagnosis does not mean that we are getting rid of symptoms or it’s a problem to be fixed, but rather that this is a different language and that to support the client we identify the language and support the family and others to improve communication with the person. Further, we support the neurodivergent person to understand how their communication is being perceived by others who are neurotypical, to enhance their current social cues and responses, and to learn how current behaviors affect social connections to others. Finally, we believe that in treating the whole person we look at the layers of the person: from the neurodivergent traits, to the personality, to the values which makes each case unique.
This process and program works well in addition to therapy at Happy Brain or as a stand-alone program if you or your loved one is already seeing a therapist or psychologist.
