Behavioral health services for children, teens and adults.
Center for Social Dynamics’ behavioral health services help individuals embrace learning new skills in a positive environment that promotes current and long term independence.
Integrating therapies in different environments.
Improving social, communication, academic, and independent living skills in a positive environment for each child makes all the difference. CSD’s integrated approach embeds behavioral health care into both comfortable and challenging spaces, which increases effectiveness and inclusion for optimal independence and growth.
CSD empowers individuals to incorporate treatment into daily routines through behavioral services at home, at school, at our centers, and out in the community. We have a commitment to rapidly responding to evolving child and parent needs, cultural sensitivity to family values and generational dynamics.
Methods that motivate meaningful milestones.
CSD’s behavioral health service methods are customized to teach the skills that matter most to children and their families with the level of patience and understanding that’s needed to make a difference.
Center for Social Dynamics provides diagnostic evaluations for children, adolescents and adults who are thought to have an autism spectrum disorder. Evaluations typically last one to one and a half days at the clinic, and involve forming a diagnosis and creating a treatment plan with specific interventions designed to help each individual flourish. The evaluation includes a caregiver interview, review of medical, social, academic and developmental history, and clinical a testing session with the individual.
Using evidence-based and systematic methods of assessment, CSD identifies areas for support and recommends specific treatment targets and a number of hours per week for autism services. Our assessment process addresses the individual’s current level of behavioral, social, communication and daily living skill functioning, and develops strategies to teach new skills across the individual’s language, cultural environment and living situation to promote independence and generalization across people, places, and settings.
