Family Enrichment

Springbrook's monthly enrichment/education program.

Welcome Friends and Family

Each month, a team of our professionals will produce an informational video geared toward specific topics related to Autism Spectrum Disorder. Our goal is to help bridge the gap between our patients' stay with us and the transition back into the home environment. Also, we hope to empower families and our patients, and to provide tools that makes that transition successful. We encourage all family members and other natural support individuals to view these monthly presentations to become more in tune with how children and adolescents with autism relate and function in our world.

Look for our educational videos on the 2nd Saturday of each month. After you view the video, we will then give you the opportunity to ask questions specific to the presentation via email with each month’s presenter and the topic.

Topic for November 2021

Tisha Hurteau, LMSW

I am originally from GA, but moved to the Greenville area four years ago. During that time I was in search for a job and ended up getting hired at a company called Palmetto Autism where I discovered my passion for working with children on the spectrum.  While working, I was in the process of obtaining my Masters in Social Work and once I graduated, I wanted to continue working with children on the spectrum.  During my job search, I ended up finding SpringBrook and found that they work with autistic children and so my journey began at SpringBrook in 2019 on the RTF as a therapist. I worked on this unit for about a year and then transitioned to the Acute Unit where I currently work as an Acute Therapist.  I possess my Masters in Social Work and a B.S in sociology with a minor in psychology.  I am also a Registered Behavior Technician.  I recently also obtained the title of Acute Clinical Lead Assistant where I help oversee planning for the unit.  I have a true passion for helping others and it brings me joy to be a part of helping to change lives not only for the children but for the family as a whole.
