The Autism Day Treatment (ADT) program at St. David's Center supports children ages 2-6 with primary diagnoses of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). 

Mental Health Approach

Our ADT program is the only day treatment program in the West metro that leverages an interdisciplinary team of child therapists including a:

  • Licensed psychologist/mental health professional
  • Mental health practitioner
  • Music therapist
  • Occupational therapist
  • Speech/language therapist 

Our program creates a tailored plan to meet your child's individual needs. We take an integrated approach to treating the challenges associated with ASD including difficulties with:

  • social interaction
  • communication
  • sensory processing
  • self-regulation

Inclusion and Support

We support your child in improving functioning both inside and outside of the classroom. We provide the opportunity for your child to transition to a supportive and inclusive preschool classroom in the same building. 

Autism Day Treatment Family Support Groups

We recognize that your entire family is affected by autism. We value communication and collaboration with parents and caregivers of every child in the program. We also offer:

  • support groups
  • workshops
