Delano is a six year old boy. Most of the time, he is a kind, fun-loving child, but his autism interfered with his ability to communicate his needs to his grandparents which led to fits of anger and increased stress in the home.
Through our autism therapy and social skills programs, we were able to enhance all of Delano's great qualities by teaching him more effective ways to deal with things he doesn't like. Daily life events such as putting on his winter coat, getting his hair cut or transitioning from one activity to another have been made easier through visual schedules. He is having less tantrums, his socialization skills are improving, he is able to request things he needs using full sentences, and his receptive and expressive language skills also are improving.
Thanks to hard work and therapy, Delano's and his family's future looks brighter!
