Children’s Therapy Corner is proud to offer The Sandbox, a developmental-based transdisciplinary program providing intensive therapeutic services specialized for children with a medical diagnosis of autism. Why is it called the ‘Sandbox’? The name was chosen to represent a place designed where all children and professionals can come together to learn, grow and play.

The purpose of this program is to provide children the developmental skills and abilities to become integrated into their school and community along-side their peers, as independent social partners. Research continues to show that it is integral to begin intensive intervention for children as early as possible.

  • About This Therapy

    The Sandbox program focuses on play, socialization, communication, education and behavioral support for children under age 7. Our approach uses evidence-based, individualized intervention in 1:1 direct instruction and small groups. This is an intense program, scheduled 5 days a week for 3 hours each day.

    If your child is in the Sandbox, you can expect him or her to participate both in small group therapy and in one-on-one sessions. Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), Speech-Language, Occupational, Physical and Music therapies as well as parent education are services within the Sandbox. Home-based ABA is also available for the children enrolled in the Sandbox to further increase generalization of skills into the home and provide additional education and training for the families. The PLAY Project is available for families as a parent-mediated intensive intervention and is completed within the home working with a PLAY Project Consultant.

  • Treatment Approach

    For intake and planning, each recommended discipline completes an evaluation to assess your child’s skill level to determine the focus of treatments and goals. Those frequency recommendations are compiled to create an individualized weekly schedule and program unique to your child. Treatment involves a transdisciplinary approach of all the different disciplines addressing their specific targeted areas as well as collaborating with the team to use a whole child approach.
