Immediate Openings for Assessments Clinic Now Open!
At Autism Services of Minnesota, we strive to provide the highest level of clinical expertise while incorporating the family system and maintaining an individualized approach.
Our combined clinical experience of over 30 years enables us to offer effective individualized treatment and care. We treat a number of mental health disorders including Autism and related conditions (ADHD, Downs Syndrome, Global Developmental Delay ect.), and provide Applied Behavior Analysis therapeutic support to individuals ages 2-9 and their caregivers/families.
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy applies our understanding of how behavior works to real life situations. The goal is to increase behaviors that we want to see (i.e. walking appropriately next to caregivers, requesting for food) and decrease behaviors that affect learning (i.e. bolting from caregivers, crying/whining when they want food).
Our ABA therapy incorporates the family systems while maintaining a highly individualized approach. We strive to ensure that skills taught in a controlled setting are generalized into the home and community setting. We believe that individual treatment plans should be just that--individual and truly match the needs of the learner and their family system.
We also provide consultative support to clinics, schools and counties.
Autism Services of Minnesota does not discriminate in providing services on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status.
Clients with limited English proficiency, clients who are deaf or hard of hearing, and clients with any other characteristics that make it hard for them to understand oral English communication will be offered:
• Oral language assistance: This obligation can be met by utilizing interpreter services in person, by video conferencing, or through telephone interpreter services or language lines. With the exception of emergency situations, Autism Services of Minnesota may not rely on a patient’s minor child or adult relative to serve as an interpreter. This compromises effective communication and can create a culturally unsafe situation for the patient and/or relative.
• Written translation: This obligation can be met by the provision of written materials, translated by a qualified translator, for clients with limited English proficiency. Materials can include intake forms, consent forms, education materials, and assessments.
