Opening Doors to Communication
Floortime therapy is a special kind of treatment designed to help children with autism improve their communication abilities by meeting them at their own level. During floortime therapy, parents and therapists play alongside the child on the floor, allowing the child to take the lead by participating in the activities he or she enjoys. As parents and therapists enter into the child’s play, they help guide the child through increasingly complex interactions, opening the door to communication. In addition to working with the child, the therapist also works closely with the parents, laying the foundation for further work at home.
If your family is affected by autism, find out whether floortime therapy is right for you. Contact A and J Behavioral Health in Holbrook, NY today to schedule your consultation.

I don’t know what to say. The bcba and therapist taught my child how to maintain eye contact and respond to her name. I couldn’t be more thrilled. They are the best!:)))

As a mother of a child that had fairly obvious issues to me but yet was not obvious to many health practitioners before I came to A and J Behavioral Health. A and J recognized the issues and formulated a detailed plan to help. We have been with A and J for only a few months, but my daughter has made great progress! Thank you for listening and helping !

My wife and I were going from pediatrician to neurologist to psychologist and we had no answers on how to help our youngest daughter. All Of the supposed doctors said “there is nothing wrong with her” but my wife and I knew better. Once we called A and J we realized they were pediatric child specialists that could help us. Pediatricians are only interested in passing you on to a neurologist who truly doesn’t know anything about mental health. They wanted to put our daughter on medication and we couldnt figure out why since she was not aggressive. We refused to put her on medication since she didn’t need it. The neurologist just said this medication will make her less anxious. I wasn’t sure she was anxious or just didn’t know how to behave or function in society. Since starting with A and J a couple of months ago we have seen a dramatic improvement. The Senior staff is helping educate and train us as well to help her on a daily basis. She is starting to interact more and seems happier. Thank you so much :))
