After School Program

Program Overview

At RCG, we pride ourselves in having the ability to offer children with Autism an opportunity to receive individualized attention for their language, academic and social development. Our After-School Program provides fun and developmentally appropriate activities in a safe, supportive setting. Special features include daily one-to-one individualized therapy by trained therapists, large group activities, social skills based activities, arts and crafts, special events, and much more.

Structure

Each client attending the After-School Program will be receiving one-to-one ABA therapy by a highly trained therapist. All  therapists will utilize the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis in individual and group settings to encourage social skills and communication to promote generalization of new and mastered skills across multiple settings and people.  Each client will have an individualized behavior plan to help target and reduce problem behavior. Clients will follow a daily schedule which will include both small and large group activities.

Schedule

The sessions will be located at RCG Behavioral Health Network Midlothian campus. After-School sessions will run from 2:30pm to 6:30pm beginning in September and running through the school year.
