MAC Services and Programs

MAC provides a plethora of services that are designed to help you and your child meet your goals that you both want to attain:

  • Center Based Services: MAC’s center-based program adopts a holistic approach in providing intensive behavioral intervention to group learning experiences for transitioning into lesser restrictive settings. The goal of center-based therapy services is to provide your child with the best possible outcome for a healthy and independent life. ABA strategies are used, coupled with Speech/OT and a variety of curricula based on the needs of the child.

 

  • Skills Development Services: MAC’s skills development services focus on providing functional skills including social, language, adaptive and vocational programming to help increase functional communication and independence in daily living.

 

  • Occupational Therapy: MAC Occupational Therapists collaborate with each individual’s behavioral therapy team to promote adaptive and motor development and address sensory dysfunction.

 

  • Speech Therapy: MAC Speech-Language Pathologists collaborate with each individual’s behavioral therapy team to promote language and communication development throughout their day. All MAC Speech Language Pathologists have extensive training in Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) such as iPad applications, DynaVox devices and the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS).

 

  • Psychotherapy or Individual and Family Therapy: MAC clinicians have expertise within the scope of autism, including the impact it has on family members. This service is provided to individuals and families who would like to meet with a clinician that has the established background to help process challenges as well as utilize other therapy modalities.

 

  • MAC Assessment & Diagnosis Services: MAC’s team of experienced doctors and Licensed Mental Health Professionals are capable of providing initial screening and diagnosis of autism and provide on-going assessments and evaluations. Our assessment and diagnostic services are available to current MAC families as well as those who have not yet established a relationship with MAC.

 

Although ASD is a lifelong disorder, treatments and services can improve a person’s symptoms and ability to function. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that all children be screened for autism. All caregivers should talk to their child’s pediatrician or family doctor about ASD screening or evaluation.
