WISCONSIN EARLY AUTISM PROJECT:
There are many things that are still unknown about autism, but we do know that the research has shown applied behavior analysis (ABA) to be the most effective treatment. ABA is about teaching socially appropriate skills by breaking behaviors into small teachable steps.
Serving the Oshkosh community and led by Kerry Hoops, our talented team of clinicians provide individualized, evidence-based programs in clients’ homes and at our learning center.
Wisconsin Early Autism Project is a part of LEARN Behavioral.
At the Wisconsin Early Autism Project, we offer a comprehensive approach to evaluation and diagnosis. If you have concerns about your child’s development or behavior, a Diagnostic Evaluation with our diagnosticians can be scheduled within a matter of weeks. We are currently scheduling evaluations for preschool aged children with availability for full-time participation in early, comprehensive behavioral treatment programs. Referrals are not necessary for a Comprehensive Diagnostic Evaluation.
Our Home-Based Treatment programs give children the opportunity to access new learning opportunities in their home context for up to 40 hours per week. Our treatment program is individualized base on your child’s unique interests and strengths. Sessions can be incorporated into your typical family routines, in a specific learning area, and in the community. Our programs address a wide range of skills including function and social communication, socialization, self-care and school readiness.
Contemporary approaches to behavioral treatment include peer interaction and community integration right from the beginning. Center-based behavioral treatment programs are an appealing option for families who would like their child to access comprehensive services outside of the home setting.
Families and individuals with autism may require support as they navigate through life. Counseling can guide individuals with autism through complex social situations, support self-esteem, help with self-regulation, organizational skills, relationship development, and assist with challenging family dynamics. Counseling can also provide support to parents and siblings whose daily lives are affected by the challenges of autism. We work with children, adolescents, adults and families affected with autism across the lifespan.
I love working at WEAP because every day is something new. There are surprises, celebrations, and challenges around every corner!
