Mental Health and Autism Spectrum Disorder 


Therapy is a unique opportunity for an individual to meet with a trained professional who is willing and able to establish treatment goals and develop a pathway to achieve those goals. It relies on the individual’s willingness to be open and participate in the process. Therapists are instrumental in consulting with MDT about interviews and cases. These discussions may include information regarding developmental level, response to trauma, or the disclosure process.  The Children's Advocacy Centers  utilize the researched-based treatment to meet accredidation standards. Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) is a method that  has been shown to be effective in coping with trauma. The following strategies shared in providing therapy to individuals with various disabilities are intended to help facilitate therapy.
