The MENTOR Network is committed to responding to the emerging needs of children and families in communities across the country. That’s why we offer a continuum of services and supports that can be customized to the needs of children with autism and autism spectrum disorders (ASD).
We recognize that youth with autism or other autism spectrum disorders have unique strengths and abilities. In addition to customizing our continuum of care to meet their needs—in our Therapeutic Foster Care programs, educational support offerings or in-home therapy services—we also offer specialized programs to meet their needs, including:
- Early intervention services for children from birth to age 3 where the Floortime model—developed by Dr. Stanley Greenspan—is used to bring “purposeful play” into family homes.
- A therapeutic summer day camp in Pennsylvania specifically designed to meet the unique needs of children with autism. Children are able to enjoy traditional camp activities, including arts and crafts, community trips, music, dance, and swimming, while also receiving the personalized supports they need to grow and learn to the best of their abilities.
The MENTOR Network strives to create individualized experiences that combine personal choice and community integration with professional oversight, family involvement and stability for the children we serve. Our flexible approach keeps each child’s best interests and goals at the forefront of all of our services.
