Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disability that can cause issues in behavior, cognitive functioning, and social skills. People with ASD often communicate differently than others. Some individuals with ASD need significant help in daily life, while others do not. According to the Centers for Disease Control, more people than ever before are being diagnosed with ASD.
Treatment for ASD varies depending on the severity of an individual’s problems. However, most research suggests that early intervention is key to long-term success. If you think your child has ASD or another developmental disability, talk to a doctor about your concerns.

Every person with autism is different and requires individualized support. At Camp Worth, our team members meet with each child to assess their individual needs and diagnoses. A Board Certified Behavior Analyst conducts a functional assessment to explore the potential reasons for behavior. This information is used to create an individualized intervention plan to promote positive behavior change.
Individualized autism spectrum disorder services focus on each child’s needs. In our residential autism treatment center, boys and girls learn healthy ways to express themselves in a setting removed from daily stressors, and improve their cognitive and life skills.
Our goal is to help every child grow and thrive regardless of the struggles in their lives.
At Camp Worth, we provide a variety of services through the day. Children with autism spectrum disorder all require different levels and forms of support, so each treatment plan is different. Our Board Certified Behavior Analyst assesses your child at admission to Camp Worth to explore which support options will be most effective. Additionally, our entire treatment team, from Care Coordinators to therapist, frequently communicate and collaborate to use a multi-faceted approach to support your child. Some of the treatments we offer include:
- Recreational Therapy
- Individual Therapy
- Family Counseling
- Parent Training
- Social Skills Groups
- Functional Skills Training
- Functional Communication Training
We are also proud to offer medication management. While there is no medication that treats autism itself, some medications can help manage the symptoms associated with autism. For example, some antidepressants work to decrease anxiety and irritability. Our team-guided behavior-based medication management program works by monitoring how your child responds to prescribed medications. We offer pharmacogenetic testing to determine which medications will work best for your child. Because Camp Worth is a residential program, we continuously monitor for how they are reacting.
Enrichment is equally important, and our ASD program includes a sensory gym, art therapy, and mindfulness activities, among others, to stimulate the mind and engage the senses.
