Autism intervention is focused on working with children and families to address challenges posed due to many people not understanding or misunderstanding autistic children.

Assessment Focus

Children with autism generally experience difficulties with:

  • Attention
  • Imitation
  • Receptive and expressive communication
  • Social interaction
  • Play
  • Unusual sensory responses
  • Behavioral control

The assessment examines how these factors impact a child’s communication, social interaction, play skills and behaviors.


The therapist establishes the child’s specific challenges and relative areas of strength through:

  • Play-based observations
  • Observations of patterns of interaction between child and his or her environment


The therapist:

  • Establishes the child’s specific challenges and relative areas of strength
  • Works with the family to create a tailored plan, known as the Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP)
