When it comes to autism, the simple truth is “It doesn't need to be this hard...for anyone!” How can I say this with such conviction?
Because for 25 years as an OT in this field, I have seen and helped families who have felt like their child with autism was “un-helpable” and whose lives were falling apart around them, all due to the daily stress and perplexities of their child's condition. The S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Approach model has been what I have used to address each and every concern or struggle brought to my attention in my capacity as Founding Director of Integrations Treatment Center (ITC), an autism specialty center in Ohio and home of The S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Approach.
The model was created out of sheer need and has worked like no other model I have ever witnessed. Perhaps that is because The S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Approach, by design, is a transdisciplinary, yet synclectic, model that yields completely customized programming. According to AWEtism Productions a new autism media company, “Children with autism spectrum disorder/PDD are faced with many sensory, emotional, communication, social, self-care, behavioral and academic challenges.” The S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Approach is the single most effective model to address this vast array of challenges. Its efficacy presents itself both in the day-to-day clinical experience at ITC and in the recent center-based research conducted with the support of the Ohio Department of Education.
