Autism Services

It is an exciting and a challenging time to serve individuals with autism spectrum disorder and their families. Exciting, because advances in medicine, neuroscience, developmental, and behavioral intervention offer great promise. Challenging, because many individuals lack access to intensive, well-coordinated services. At Play to Grow Developmental Therapy Services we provide:
  • Comprehensive multidisciplinary assessment, including the Autism Diagnostic Observation Scale (ADOS) when indicated for diagnostic purposes
  • An individualized intervention plan that synthesizes developmental and behavioral approaches
  • Intensive behavioral services for young children
  • Individual and family supports across multiple environments
  • Coordinated care, including collaboration among all the professionals that are part of your team
Our team of professionals has extensive experience working with individuals with developmental and social-emotional challenges, including those with autism spectrum disorder.  Your individualized program can include a number of services that are helpful to individuals with ASD and their families including augmentative communication, feeding therapies, sensory integration, listening therapies, social skill training, cognitive and behavioral therapy, and sensory integration. 

Philosophically we draw upon developmental-relationship based approaches to services as embodied in the DIR/Floortime Model and SCERTS while incorporating cognitive and behavioral approaches and functional skill-based intervention into our work with children and families as needed.   For our young children with autism we are now offering the Early Start Denver Model ( ESDM)  through Play2Grow Behavioral Therapy. The ESDM is an approach which synthesizes  relationship-based, developmental and behavioral approaches to intensive programming for children six and younger and qualifies in Oregon for coverage under  ABA benefits when provided by your insurance company.
