CLINICAL DIAGNOSIS

Our team performs diagnostic evaluations through the use of instruments considered gold standards worldwide for the identification of autism. The professionals who carry out the evaluation have extensive knowledge about child development and the necessary training for the application of tests. The instruments used are:  

  • ADOS-2  

  • ADI-R  

In addition, the evaluation can be complemented with tests such as VINELAND, WISC, CARS, among others.  

At the end of the assessment, we deliver a written report to the family that includes a detailed description of the child's development and individualized recommendations to promote their development. 

We evaluate the abilities and challenges of each child to design an individualized program that benefits their development. We integrate models that have scientific support and structured methodologies that turn out to be favorable in the care of people with autism. Some of these models are Denver, ABA, PECS, among others. To monitor our children's progress, we prepare quarterly reports that allow us to continually adapt the intervention plan and ensure that the child is continually making progress.

 

Scientific evidence has shown that intervention  therapy in ASD benefits exponentially with parents who take an active role in it and generalize the goals of therapy in a family context. That is why the individual sessions are open to parents, so that they can observe, learn and replicate the therapeutic activities of their child at home. 

INDIVIDUAL THERAPIES

SIMULADOR ESCOLAR

Simulador Escolar is a group therapeutic context in which the DENVER methodology is used. This methodology was developed at the University of California and has extensive scientific support for its benefits in people with autism up to 5 years of age. In its group format, DENVER provides tools for socialization, independence and skills that generally build the necessary foundations for the person with autism to be able to transition  to a school context. In this program, our children are put in groups of 6  who are attended to by three therapists and a coordinator. Each patient has quarterly individual and group objectives that they develop through activities previously reflected in a weekly plan.  

Children who attend Simulador receive attention for four and a half hours a day from Monday to Friday. Parents receive daily written reports on activities for their children do, so they can continue the stimulation at home. In addition, the therapeutic team meets quarterly with each family to deliver progress reports and the child's new goals. 

When necessary, we provide the necessary tools for the person with autism to go to the school with a therapeutic companion. In this process we carry out :  

  • School evaluation  

  • Recruitment of the therapeutic companion

  • Training for teachers and parents  

  • Work plan with curricular adjustments and objectives for the student

  • Progress reports for schools and teachers

  • Training and constant supervision of the companion  

The ultimate goal of therapeutic accompaniment is to achieve the independence of the student in the school; To achieve this goal, it is necessary to work together with the school, family and clinical team.  

SCHOOL COMPANIONSHIP

PARENT GROUPS 

Twice a year, our families are invited to participate in parent groups. In these spaces we exchange experiences, create support networks and provide tools to continue strengthening the development of people with autism and their families. Each group lasts for at least eight sessions in which the main focus is the parents and/or caregivers of someone with ASD.  ​

The care of the family nucleus and the creation of support networks are key pieces in the development of people with ASD. We need happy adults to raise happy and fulfilled children. 

We offer courses on autism, child development, inclusion, assessment and therapeutic care to:  

  • therapists  

  • Schools  

  • Companies  

  • families

Training approaches are specific to the needs of the target audience.
