Can I join the session with you and my child?

We know that you are the experts on your children, and we value your opinion, goals and active participation throughout our time together. We encourage you to be a part of our therapy sessions, and learn hands on techniques to take home with you. This is incredibly beneficial for carry through in day to day life.

We also understand that siblings are part of the family, and it is not always possible to have childcare available for the sibling.  We love to have siblings join the sessions as we see the value in the different dynamic that it brings which we may not see otherwise.  If siblings are an active participant in the therapy session and joining in with those activities laid out as part of the therapy session, we welcome them into the space.  Most families arrange to have childcare for the sibling, or they wait in our kid friendly reception area during the time period of the session.  This is to maintain the value and benefit of sessions for your child, and the other children in the gym at the same time.

Are your therapists on the RASP list (Registered Autism Service Providers)?

Yes- our therapists are all on the RASP list. We have some therapists who are in the supervision category, and receive regular support through our other therapists on the MM team.
