As many of you are aware, the prevalence rate of diagnosed Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) has skyrocketed over the last several decades. More and more military families are facing the struggles of coming to terms with the troubling diagnosis, only to be met by the heartbreak and frustration of not being able to promptly access services.
This is especially true in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), where parents are often told that, while the resources exist, and services can be covered by their insurance carriers, there simply are no openings. Many children with ASDs are placed on waiting lists for months! Years of research has supported the fact that accessing early intervention services is critical for the development of these children.
With fewer than 30 registered Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) practicing within a 50 mile radius of Camp Lejeune, and even fewer enrolled as Tricare network providers, the lack of available resources is compounded.
At Spectrum Learning Solutions, we have witnessed the frustration firsthand, thus motivating us to provide a solution: Spectrum Learning Solutions is the first center-based clinic in the Camp Lejeune area to render highly specialized treatment options to children with ASDs.
The following services are what make us unique:
Child-friendly, minimally distracting environment which fosters a faster rate of acquisition for new skills and adaptive replacement behaviors.
Indoor sensory playroom and large outdoor play area to keep our clients active and alert.
Bi-weekly parent-training component during which parents and caregivers learn the teaching techniques to help generalize their children's emerging and mastered skills.
Intervention and consultation in the clinic setting, home, school and community as needed to work on specific skills in the most conducive and appropriate environment.
Increased opportunities for social interactions between children with ASDs, facilitated by each child's individual ABA therapist.
Spectrum Learning Solutions is conveniently located at 502 US Hwy 17 N in Holly Ridge, NC, serving Onslow, Pender and New Hanover Counties. We are a Tricare-approved, in-network provider accepting new clients diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders. We are also accepting private pay clients for consultation and treatment.
