Watching your child grow from a teen to a young adult can fill you with pride—and worry. KGH can help your teen take the next step. We teach teens and young adults the skills they need to find and keep a job. The goal? To help them develop into active, successful members of their community.
How We Can Help at this Age
Our expert therapy, education and support prepares your child to…
Comprehensive ABA – uses the science of behavior analysis to address all of the core deficits of ASD such as challenging behaviors and skills in communication, leisure, social interaction, safety, and independent or CILA living.
Focused ABA – uses the science of behavior analysis to address a specific core deficit of ASD. Your teen or young adult will get support for areas of particular difficulty to address and decrease significant problematic behaviors.
Our services support teens and young adults and their emotional needs. Focus areas include work on advocating for themselves, preparing for college or gaining housing and residential supports. Our work with safety, sexuality and social media use greatly benefits high schoolers and young adults.
We often invite parents to discuss future planning. This includes preparing for college or finding housing and residential supports for your child.
Work on receptive (what an individual understands) and expressive (what they say) as well as the social part of language. This may also include speech treatment for apraxia and help with executive functioning.
Does your teen struggle with vocal speech? Our trained specialized clinicians will help with alternative communication system(s). We make it as easy as possible for your teen, so they will use their device or system consistently. We’ll show you and them how to make it happen.
We offer IEP, school, and post-school transition support, as well as parent training. We empower you to parent your high schooler or young adult. We can set you up with other parents going through similar challenges. You are not alone!
