Autism Counseling and Therapy - Counselors in Colorado

Autism, or autism spectrum disorder (ASD), refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication. According to the Centers for Disease Control, autism affects an estimated 1 in 59 children in the United States today.

We know that there is not one autism but many subtypes, most influenced by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Because autism is a spectrum disorder, each person with autism has a distinct set of strengths and challenges. The ways in which people with autism learn, think and problem-solve can range from highly skilled to severely challenged. Some people with ASD may require significant support in their daily lives, while others may need less support and, in some cases, live entirely independently.

Several factors may influence the development of autism, and it is often accompanied by sensory sensitivities and medical issues such as gastrointestinal (GI) disorders, seizures or sleep disorders, as well as mental health challenges such as anxiety, depression and attention issues.

Indicators of autism usually appear by age 2 or 3. Some associated development delays can appear even earlier, and often, it can be diagnosed as early as 18 months. Research shows that early intervention leads to positive outcomes later in life for people with autism.

Common Approaches to Autism Counseling

Term Example
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) ABA therapy is a behavior modification technique that uses evidence-based practices to improve a child's life by reinforcing positive behaviors.
Feeding Therapy This approach addresses picky eating and food aversions, helping children enjoy a wider variety of foods in their everyday life.
Social Skills Training Social groups focus on improving communication skills and social interactions, enabling children to better connect with their peers.
Family Services These services support the entire family, offering guidance and strategies to help everyone adapt and thrive together.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) CBT is used to address mental health issues such as anxiety and depression, helping children manage stress and improve daily life.
Occupational Therapy This therapy helps children with autism develop fine motor skills and adapt to different sensory environments.
