Special Education For Children and Adolescents While Enrolled In Our Autism Behavioral Health Program, South Carolina
Perhaps you’re one of these parents, one of these families, and you’re facing this very difficult decision. You might feel a strange mixture of hope and fear, you might feel some relief mixed with an inexplicable sense of failure, or you might feel completely numb. Whatever you’re feeling, it’s alright to let go and lean on someone else for a change. The Autism Program at Springbrook Behavioral Health hires only compassionate, confident, specially-trained staff members who treat each child as a unique and important individual.
Through our personalized, evidence-based treatments and therapies, we work patiently to help each child achieve some level of success and self-sufficiency outside of the program. Our holistic approach emphasizes education, overall well-being, ongoing progress, and family involvement, so we encourage visits, phone calls, and family counseling in addition to our regular autism therapy programs. Ultimately, our goal for children with autism is not that different from the goals of any behavioral or mental health center: To help the patient build a routine and manage the symptoms of the condition through therapy, diet, exercise, and medication.
Springbrook Autism Behavioral Health prohibits admission discrimination based on age, race, ethnicity, religion, culture, language, mental disability, socioeconomic status, sex, sexual orientation, and gender or expression.
Some of the unique features of our residential program designed to treat severe behavioral and psychiatric episodes of consumers with autism include sensory integration rooms, visual schedules, communication programs for non-verbal residents, self-paced curriculum, individual tutor style instruction as well as custom-made indoor and outdoor play areas, and a gymnasium.
