Supporting Therapies to Foster Additional Growth:

Community Based ABA -is a an ABA based therapy option within the community setting.  The therapist meets the child at a local play center and assists them as they interact with neurotypical peers in a neurotypical play setting.  Compliance, stamina, boundaries, shared thinking, joint attention, joint play, and more is addressed in this setting. This is provided at the play center location and provided through a contract with Chelsey Thatcher, LPC

Child Relational Therapy (CRT)-is a program where parents and their child come together to specifically work on building stronger bonds through play! Compliance, stamina, boundaries, shared thinking, joint attention, joint play, and more is addressed in the class.  This is provided at both of the UTH physical locations.

Family Therapy-where more than one member of the family unit is present to work on communication among family members to create more consistency and less stress within the home setting. This is provided at both of the UTH physical locations.

In Depth/ Intensive Consultation-focuses on a more in depth consultation for challenges as needed for families and scheduled as needed. This is more than juts talk on the phone!  Chelsey Thatcher, LPC is contracted to provide the encrypted video conferencing remote option utilized for this service.  This service is not available at the UTH physical locations as normally this is reserved so that it can provided around the business of the day.

Play Therapy-we support directive play therapy for those younger than age 7, this therapy is primarily focused on only the child’s growth and includes aspects such as drama play, art, and games. A parent could be included, but we normally reserve that for filial therapy. This is provided at both of the UTH physical locations.

Filial Therapy-where the parent and the child are interacting in the session together through a game, toys, art, etc. to build better communication, compliance, and social play skills and to teach redirection and self-calming strategies.
