Springbrook Behavioral Health offers treatment programs for behavioral problems that are linked to autism. The Autism Program at Springbrook is a goal-oriented treatment plan designed to minimize the self-destructive behaviors that are often seen in children with autism and related diagnoses. At the core of our program is Applied Behavior Analysis—a discipline that uses evidence-based interventions to improve socially significant behaviors.
Some of the interventions for children with autism include visual schedules, play therapy, story-based interventions that ask students to imagine themselves in social situations and plan ahead to decrease anxiety, peer training, modeling behaviors, and teaching joining techniques. Ultimately, the goal of their program is not merely to eliminate an undesirable behavior but to equip children with autism with the tools they need to manage themselves and become more flexible, spontaneous, and adaptable to social situations.
