Portsmouth, NH (PRWEB) November 13, 2013
Constellations Behavioral Services announced they will be hosting an Open House on November 16th from 9am-12pm at their new clinic located at 200 Griffin Rd, Suite 5, in Portsmouth, NH. Families are invited to tour the new facility and meet the staff. Food and fun activities will also be provided.
The Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Center is designed to assist students with autism and other developmental delays who need additional time developing and cultivating life skills. Learners receive intensive, one-on-one therapy focused on academic goals, behavioral challenges, social interaction and communication skills. In addition to ABA Therapy, children attending the clinic have access to on-site occupational therapy, social skills groups, and speech therapy.
“We’re very excited to be able to offer first class ABA Therapy right here in Portsmouth, NH.” stated Tim Heald, Operations Director for Constellations Behavioral Services. “ABA therapy is one of the most highly recommended, scientifically proven treatments for children with autism or other developmental disabilities. Integrating ABA, OT, and speech therapy under one roof not only saves families the time commuting to multiple facilities but also aligns methodologies for the most effective treatment possible.”
“We are filling a major gap in services for families,” stated Kim Heald, Program Director. “Unfortunately, parents of children with autism have not had many resources or opportunities to access research based therapy during the early intervention years. Given how crucial the early years are, we felt strongly that we needed to help fill this gap utilizing the most effective strategies that help set children up for success as they move through their education.”
The new clinic also offers customized social skills groups. Instruction is embedded in games and activities typical to school and play scenarios encountered in environments outside of the group setting.
