Consultants for Children, Inc (CFCI) started out with a focus on helping children with Autism reach their goals. Twelve years later, CFCI has broadened its scope to meet the variety of needs of an array of children with behavioral and developmental disabilities.
Our mission is to provide the best possible treatment plan for children diagnosed with Autism and/or other developmental disabilities by providing comprehensive consulting services to both parents and schools. CFCI was developed to educate parents and schools to work effectively with these children, keeping the child’s best interest in mind. We strive to put the needs of the individual child and their families first, rather than any particular teaching method or philosophy. We feel that not doing so results in programs that are inadequate and overall ineffective. With our experience and extensive knowledge, and with the variety of treatment options available, we believe we can not only help children progress, but give hope back to their families.
Our philosophy is that children diagnosed with autism and/or other developmental disabilities have the capability to function independently within their home and school environment. In order to ensure each child’s independence, an effective treatment plan must be established. Consultants for Children, Inc consults with parents and schools to develop appropriate treatment plans, targeting the needs of each child. Our services are primarily based upon the foundations of ABA , and we incorporate aspects of Verbal Behavior, Floortime, Cognitive-Behavioral Play Therapy, TEACCH, RDI, and up to date research findings to make it an overall inclusive plan. We are dedicated in developing effective treatment plans that promote the independence and academic success of each child. We believe that with effective treatment, each child can grow to have a happy and fulfilling life.
