INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT PROGRAM FOR AUTISM

WHAT IS THE PROGRAM?

MMHC is expanding services to those with ASD at our Apple Valley site.  The Intensive Outpatient Program for ASD is a 6-week program that occurs for 3 hours a day (12:00-3:00pm, Monday-Thursday).  It is designed to provide treatment for individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder between the ages of 18-25 who need more support than what weekly individual therapy or social skills can offer. 

WHO IS APPROPRIATE FOR THE PROGRAM?

This program is designed for individuals ages 18-25 with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder or one of the past diagnoses now included in the category of Autism Spectrum Disorder, which includes: Asperger’s syndrome, autistic disorder, pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS), and childhood disintegrative disorder.  An appropriate candidate for the program would also be someone who could benefit from more intensive treatment, but does not require in-patient hospitalization, can maintain physical safety towards themselves and others, does not require one-to-one support, and can function in a group setting.

WHAT IS COVERED IN THE PROGRAM?

Throughout the 6 weeks specific topics will be covered each week.  These include:

  • Psychoeducation
  • Social interactions, communication, and boundaries
  • Emotion identification and regulation skills
  • Creating a healthy and balanced lifestyle
  • Self-esteem and stigma
  • Education, employment, and independent living

Parent/caregiver involvement, individual/family meetings, coordination of care, and progress reviews are also included. 

 

Please call for information regarding insurance coverage.

 

  • We take a strengths-based approach,

built upon acceptance, exploration, effectiveness, connection, and empowerment.
