Thanksgiving with Gratitude: Celebrating with the Autism Community in the Triad

By Guest Blogger Seph Bartholomew, of Key Autism Services

The month of November is a time for reflection and thankfulness, where families and communities express gratitude for their blessings. In the Triad region of North Carolina, this year brings an additional reason for the autism community to be thankful – the establishment of the Key Autism Services Autism Center in Winston-Salem.

Key Autism Services has a strong reputation for its commitment to supporting individuals with autism and their families. They focus on evidence-based therapies and maintain a dedicated team of professionals, making a significant impact in the field of autism care. The recent opening of their Autism Center in Winston-Salem highlights their ongoing dedication to the community.

A Welcoming Space for All

The Autism Center is more than just a facility; it’s a welcoming space designed with the specific needs of individuals with autism in mind. It offers a safe and inclusive environment for various services, from assessments and caregiver training to therapy and support. The center emphasizes collaboration and family involvement, recognizing that the journey of autism is one that families embark on together.

A Celebration of Neurodiversity

Key Autism Services takes pride in celebrating neurodiversity. Their approach values the uniqueness of each individual, rather than aiming to change them or their functional traits and characteristics. Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy, a cornerstone of their services, focuses on skill-building to improve an individual’s quality of life.

A Tailored Path to Progress

Key Autism Services begins with a comprehensive assessment, gaining a deep understanding of a child’s capabilities, challenges, and unique characteristics. ABA therapy identifies functional, significant, and meaningful skills that can improve an individual’s daily life. This approach ensures that the progress made positively impacts the individual.

ABA therapy’s versatility allows the treatment plan to evolve and adapt as the individual progresses. This tailored approach empowers individuals with autism to thrive, learn, and grow, making a meaningful impact on their lives.
