New to Diagnosis?
Q: My child has just been diagnosed or is showing early symptoms of autism. What can be done to help my child?
A: Bending Birch can help. A Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) can help give you the tools and support for creating a strong home program for your child. Activities might include creating opportunities for your child to seek you out and communicate his/her wants and needs. A visual schedule might be implemented to support your child in structuring his/her own time and managing transitions. Play based activities may be incorporated to work on appropriate play and social skills.
Q: Are we alone? How prevalent is Autism?
A: No you are not alone, Autism Spectrum Disorders occur in approximately 1 in 68 births and is three to four times more likely in boys than girls according to the most recent research by the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
Q: What does the future hold for my child with Autism?
A: It is estimated that 1 in 68 children in the United States are diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum. Each individual on the Spectrum is unique with unique skills, talents and abilities. Research has shown that early diagnosis and intervention offer the best opportunity to identify treatment protocols that can improve functioning and make the most of each child's ability to make progress.
