Types of Therapy of Intervention Services

The Child Development Program (CDP) provides four types of therapy or intervention services. If we feel these might be beneficial for your child and your family our providers, will refer you.

Here are the current services we offer.

Rubi Parent Training Program

The RUBI Parent Training program is for children aged 3–14 years of age and their caregivers who are trying to address disruptive and/or challenging behaviors. The therapy session is a weekly, one-hour therapy session for the child and caregiver to attend. It lasts 10–12 weeks.

The goal of the program is to empower parents and caregivers to reduce disruptive behaviors and improving their relationship with their child. RUBI is provided by our psychology services.

Peers Therapy

PEERS is a social skills intervention program to help children jump start friendship making skills and address teasing/bullying (if applicable). At UDAC, PEERS is currently being offered as an individual (one-on-one), one-hour telemedicine sessions for children aged 9-17.

PEERS requires the child and their parent to attend and that the child works on their friendship skills. You and your child will work with the therapist to choose social skill goals that are meaningful for your child. 

The sessions are weekly, and last six to eight weeks. PEERS is provided by our psychology services.

Project Impact Therapy

Project ImPACT is a social communication intervention program for children 18 months through the developmental age of four years of age. This is for children with challenges in the areas of:

  • social engagement,
  • nonverbal/verbal communication, and
  • play

This weekly or twice a week, one-hour virtual visit session requires the child and parent to attend for 12 sessions. PROJECT ImPACT is provided by our speech pathology services.

Apraxia of Speech Therapy

A child diagnosed with significant childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) or suspected CAS may be eligible for this service. The first therapy sessions are scheduled five days per week, 30 minutes each. Both the child and parent must attend.

Sessions are scheduled in four-week intervals. Follow-up sessions, if necessary, are scheduled for three to five days per week. The therapy we provide is based on dynamic temporal and tactile cueing (DTTC) motor learning theory.

The therapist will work with the child’s current speech language pathologist (SLP) to support the transition back to treatment at the conclusion of the intensive treatments. Apraxia of speech therapy is provided by our speech and language pathology services.
