Autism Specialists of the Pacific
GRBH’s Maui Autism Services
Maui, Hawaii’s Autism Specialists of the Pacific (ASOP) strives to improve the lives of children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their families through a collaborative model and the use of evidence-based practices.
Autism Specialists of the Pacific offers a comprehensive, strength-based, solution-focused approach to challenges faced by children with Autism Spectrum Disorder here in Maui, Hawaii. After a diagnosis is established based on clinical standards, we strive to define a specific treatment plan that is based on best practice parameters and that is clearly understood, makes sense, and has value to the patient, family members, and/or any other significant person who may be in a caring and supportive role. As such our treatment for Autism Spectrum Disorder includes the use of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). ABA is utilized to teach your child skills that replace problem behaviors which may be interfering with your child’s development, and in turn increase positive behaviors.
Our Applied Behavior Analysis services here on Maui are unique in that the treatment services are comprehensive and are delivered in conjunction with our psychiatrist and developmental/behavioral pediatrician. In addition, our Board Certified Behavior Analyst not only devises the behavior support plan, but she works directly with your child in delivering the therapy treatment plan. Parents are also considered very much part of the therapeutic treatment team and are provided with the necessary tools and training to successfully support their child’s learning through parent education programs outside of sessions as well as during therapy sessions.
