Intrinsic Motivation as the Driver for Behavioral Change

Mindful and Modern Therapies believes that the old-school mentality of external motivations is not a healthy way to motivate long-term behavioral changes.  Instead, inspiring intrinsic motivation is key to an enjoyable learning and change process.  By encouraging and channeling a child’s natural desire to learn, MMT provides evidence-based individualized treatment to our children.  This approach focuses on the whole child and what they specifically need to be successful in life, such as communication, social skills, problem solving, self-advocacy and self-help, just to name a few!

Therapies and services we offer to autistic children aged 18 months – 9:

Do you have concerns your child might be autistic?  ADOS testing is the first step in having your child diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, or ASD.  Play-based and roughly 30-60 minutes, your child will undergo a series of social interactions that help us determine whether your child might have ASD.  We do accept insurance, but we will need to check to see if your insurance is accepted.  For more information on ADOS testing, please refer to this wikipedia page.  To schedule a testing time, please contact us now.

Our Therapeutic Preschool program is an inclusive environment with roles models to gain practice in a realistic settings for social development, practical life skills, self advocacy while building up cognitive and language skills. Our small group setting allows for optimal therapy for each child one on one while participating in activities with peers.

Our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) choose the best techniques for helping children with the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) learn the skills they need to integrate within their family and the greater community.  Creating personalized plans that match their ability levels, our approach incorporates pre-academic, social, communication and self-help skills.  Being one of the only therapy centers located inside a Montessori school, we can help your child with integration into the classroom.

Further, we encourage active participation of the whole family unit, allowing all members to acquire the skills they need to achieve a more harmonious dynamic.  This, in turn, will help the family unit integrate into the larger community on various social outings where anxiety for autistic children can be daunting.

MMT began and still exists as a Montessori school.  We can provide a natural environment for your child to learn the skills they need to become life-long learners.  Things like real dishes that a child learns how to use, clean, and put away prepares them for the world around them.  Having a garden area for them to learn about nature and how they fit into the picture helps a child to see beyond their immediate surroundings.  This follows the principles of a Montessori education, and will allow your child to develop their entire self – physically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually.
