Acorn Autism offers a transdisciplinary therapy approach to Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Clients can currently choose from a variety of service options that include a Speech Language Therapist, Occupational Therapist, and Behaviour Consultant (BCBA).
As specialists in Autism Spectrum Disorder (including Asperger Syndrome), our clinicians work together or independently using evidence and strength based practices to ensure effective results.
All clinicians are under one roof, meaning faster, easier, integrated and more coordinated access to services.
Parents, primary caregivers, and clients are part of the team alongside clinicians. Clinicians will work with you to determine the best therapy plan for your family based on your chosen goals, as well as their expertise and experience.
