RISE is a year-round therapy program and runs at the same time as IGNITE. There are two sessions – morning and afternoon – are part of the daily schedule.
Full-Day Program: 9:00 am - 3:00pm
Morning Session: 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Afternoon Session: 12:00pm - 3:00pm
RISE is run on weekdays, and the schedule may vary by clinic. Extended scheduling options beyond 3pm are available for families seeking additional therapies later in the day. The schedule provides for flexibility in the number of days and sessions that a child may elect to attend each week.
Benefits of the RISE Therapy Program
A primary benefit of RISE is that it allows to group kids by skill level. The kids in the RISE therapy program have a similar foundation of skills that can be applied collectively to work on higher level group and social skills. With school environments being so dependent on communication and social skills, this advanced learning is effective for making the transition to a school environment easier for children with autism. For children who completed IGNITE, it allows them to continue their school readiness preparation in a more advanced setting.
