The Therapy Tree Attends Autism Workshop
Fri, 08/26/2016 - 5:05pm
I wanted to share our Autism journey and most importantly the fabulous trip to the Marcus Autism Center in Atlanta, Ga., on Tuesday, August 18, 2016.
All four of our locations in Douglas, Hazlehurst, Fitzgerald, and Alma closed on that Tuesday to attend The First Steps in Communication workshop at Marcus to broaden our therapy techniques and approach to educating the community and caregivers as to how to initially establish a line of communication with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) patients.
After the workshop we toured the research programs while meeting the doctors, scientists, feeding staff, speech and language team and of course, the patients.
The Therapy Tree provides speech, language, voice and swallowing therapy and approximately 60% of our patient base are somewhere on the ASD spectrum.
