AEGIS Security & Investigations Initiative to Support Autism Speaks
25% of Profit From ALL New Clients Donated to Autism Speaks in April & May
This initiative is inspired by Shayna Bornstein, an all star behavior therapist who works tirelessly with children diagnosed with autism. Her continuing efforts and those of individuals like her to help shape the future of these children in to productive and stable members of society does not go unnoticed. Without her support and dedication, this event wouldn’t have become a reality.
Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are characterized by varying degrees of social-interaction troubles, communication difficulties and a propensity toward engaging in repetitive behaviors. Together, they may result in relatively mild challenges for someone on the high functioning end of the autism spectrum to repetitive behaviors, lack of spoken language and difficulties in development on the lower end.
Intervention has been shown to impact the severity of autism immensely. Early intensive behavioral intervention involves a child’s entire family, working closely with a team of professionals. In some early intervention programs, therapists come into the home to provide behavior modification support services. This can include parent training with the parent leading therapy sessions under the supervision of the therapist. Other programs deliver therapy in a specialized center, classroom or preschool.
Typically, different interventions and supports become appropriate as a child develops and acquires social and learning skills. As children with autism enter school, they may benefit from targeted social skills training and specialized approaches to teaching.
Adolescents with autism can benefit from transition services that promote a successful maturation into independence and employment opportunities of adulthood.
