Complete Suite of Services

Creekside offers a complete suite of autism-related services. Our speech, behavior, occupational, art, music and mental health therapists work closely with our teachers to address students’ social, emotional and physiologic challenges.

Integrated Therapeutics

At Creekside, learning is built around the student. For example, when sixth-grader S.L. struggled with his penmanship, our occupational therapist identified the need to strengthen his fingers.

 

The team developed a coordinated approach: typing an email to Mom as a class assignment, drawing with colored pencils and letter blocks during art therapy, and playing piano during music therapy.

 

And, when it was time to work on his penmanship, the occupational therapist worked with all of the TAs in his classroom to ensure consistent coaching on how to hold a pencil and form his letters.
