Testimonials

I often have parents who report behaviors that occur in the home that I don't get to observe. Generally, reactivity is an issue and the child will refrain from engaging in the reported behavior when other people are present. With the telehealth model, I am able to "hide" behind the screen and easily observe the behavior(s) in action, which then allows me to support the parents with appropriate interventions to assist with behavior modification in the home.

I love combining my love for client-specific programming with dynamic and interactive technologies. I find that such engaging sessions effectively capture client attention and optimize engagement and skill acquisition. As of September 2020, Telehealth services have increased 154% across healthcare services. Client surveys have indicated an increase in engagement, overall satisfaction and improvement with provider communication. This greater flexibility in care has shown to decrease client indirect costs and provide more equitable access to specialized services for remote/rural families (ACOG, 2020; Frist, 2015; Kaiser Family Foundation, 2020; Orlando, Beard, Kumar, 2020)

Katharine Clark-Keene, MEd, BCBA, LBA

I love teletherapy especially for Occupational Therapy. With teletherapy, I can see my clients in their homes and work with them to become more functional within their natural environment. I am able to to work with my clients in their homes with the activities that may be difficult for them! There is nothing like learning to cook in your own kitchen or improving your strength and range of motion when hanging up laundry on your clothes line or dusting high shelves. Problem solving and then performing a difficult activity doesn’t need to be generalized when you are actually doing it.Doing it within a clinic there is a need to generalize but that isn’t needed when you are already doing it within your own home. I have found that the bond formed between my client and their family is deeper than any I formed in a clinic!

Linda Lafyatis, Telehealth Occupational Therapist

My son has benefitted from teletherapy in so many ways. We have less missed visits and it helps him stay healthier, not being exposed to as many elements. I don’t have to spend travel time or cancel when we go visit family. He has made great progress and is engaged for his sessions. The therapist knows him well and knows how to keep him engaged with fun activities that include his interests.

Individualized Care

At HYM, therapy is not about treating a diagnosis, but addressing the challenges and obstacles that prevent your child from achieving their best self. We rely on a wide range of therapeutic interventions, including speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, art and music therapy, and counseling. We conduct a comprehensive evaluation to identify with parents, your child’s specific challenges and needs, and as appropriate, provide evidence based therapeutic interventions by Masters Level Therapists to support the whole child and family.

Functional and Academic Skills Training

We offer individually designed instruction of target skills to increase community access.

This therapy is appropriate for children who need to acquire academic, social and independence skills, including children with ADHD and learning disabilities.

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) builds on a variety of techniques to understand and change behavior. Every ABA program we write meets the specific needs of the child.

We take an individualized approach to addressing problem behavior, first by identifying what leads to the negative behaviors (the antecedents), then building natural reinforcements and meaningful consequences. We use positive reinforcement to teach alternative behaviors that fulfill the same purpose. Our ongoing assessments and evaluations drive data-based decisions regarding a child’s goals and programming.

Depending on the child’s age, goals and areas of challenge, our therapists use a range of validated strategies, including early intensive behavioral intervention (EIBI), discrete trial and pivotal response training, the play-based Early Start Denver Model (ESDM), play therapy, and verbal behavior interventions.

ABA is an evidence-based best practice treatment approved by the US Surgeon General and the American Psychological Association for individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental delays, and is appropriate for individuals with behavioral, social and communication challenges. It has proven, positive outcomes from intensive, long-term therapy including:

• Improved social, functional communication, and learning skills through positive reinforcement
• Improved attention, focus, social skills, memory, and academics
• Decreased problem behaviors

At Young Minds, every ABA program is developed, implemented and supervised by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA), with implementation support from Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs). We collaborate with speech and occupational therapy providers, recognizing the critical role enhanced communication and regulation play in addressing behaviors. We also link home, school and community through coaching, consultation and training.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is based on the idea that psychological problems stem from learned patterns of unproductive or negative behavior and thinking, and that learning how to better cope with them can alleviate symptoms.

CBT strategies include helping a child understand the behavior and motivation of others, build problem-solving skills, and identify distorted thinking and face fears. Therapists will often use role play to model coping skills and change problematic thinking, emotions and behavior.

CBT is a useful behavioral approach for a variety of disorders including depression, anxiety disorders, substance abuse, and mental illness.
