In order to provide quality care that generalizes into everyday life, it is critical that clients and families are active members of the therapy team. The family must see purpose and reasonable progress in therapy in order to realize success across a variety of environments. Carryover of therapy techniques by the family in multiple settings i.e.: home, school, extracurricular activities, etc. is an integral part of the client’s success. Without the dedication of the family to carryover therapy techniques, the generalization into everyday life will be limited.
We strive to actively and meaningfully engage in therapy sessions so our client-therapist relationship will always be built on trust. The client must feel safe in the emotional environment in order to try new and challenging activities. Each individual has a right to feel accepted by both peers and adults, and to be engaged in a variety of activities that allow the feeling of accomplishment, pride, and positive self-esteem. Each individual also has the right to experience enjoyment, pleasure, relaxation, laughter, and excitement while learning. The client must feel safe in the physical environment in order to approach therapy in a calm/relaxed manner and achieve success.
