Clinical Services at Atlas

AFA strives to have each child meet their unique potential as effective communicators and expert navigators of our world. An individualized (and multi-disciplinary) therapeutic program will be developed for each student to ensure success. We truly believe that there is not one approach that is "best", but the possibility for our students to achieve their "best" with an understanding of all approaches—giving us the option to "tailor" each student's therapeutic experience.


A hybrid assessment, including formal diagnostic testing as well as informal observations and parent/caregiver input will inform goal development as well as strengths and (relative) weaknesses which will, in turn, determine the appropriate therapeutic program necessary for each student. Clinical Documentation (including session notes) will be relevant and available at the parent's request. True communication between all treating therapists as well as other team members, will be fostered to ensure consistency, which naturally paves the way for progress.
