The Integrations Treatment Center in Wickliffe is working with a new treatment plan that is providing a positive vision for families and children in dealing with all aspects of autism. The plan is called he Success Approach. The whole idea is to involve more than one therapy in treatment.
“Occupational therapy, speech language pathology, special ed, psychology and all of those theories work together. It’s not just taking one theory and applying it to the child,” Assistant Director Ellen Winney said.
This approach helps a child speak, walk or whatever else they are challenged with as part of their disorder.
One of the children who is working with the Success Approach is 4-year-old Dominic Regan. His parents, Patrick and Joy, said they found out he had autism when he was just a year old. They searched for something new or different to help their son. They wanted to go outside the box with the latest treatment available.
Joy Regan said since they found The Integrations Treatment Center, it’s only taken one year for Dominic to learn how to communicate.
What combination of treatments work for you and/or your child?
