Life at Beacon

Our staff travel to clients’ homes, daycare programs, and other community locations where the child feels most comfortable and is likely to make the most progress. During each 1.5 – 2 hour session, therapists teach children the skills that they need to attend to others, communicate, share, take turns, play with toys, and conduct activities of daily living such as washing hands and brushing teeth. Therapists design teaching sessions to be fun and interactive. Throughout each session, parents and caregivers are present and involved so that they can continue to practice the skills with the child after the therapist leaves. Supervisors also overlap in sessions each week to answer any questions and to provide therapists with ongoing training and support. A day in the life of a Beacon staff member provides many opportunities to make a difference in improving the lives of children with autism!
