Types of Therapeutic Programs
IGNITE is a preschool-aged therapeutic program. It is a full day program scheduled from 9am – 3pm. The day is divided into two parts – one session in the morning and another in the afternoon.
RISE is a kindergarten aged therapeutic program. It is a daytime, school-like program focused on applying foundational learning skills to achieve more advanced mastery of academic, independence, and social goals.
FOCUS is an afterschool therapy program for children that go to school during the day but that are looking for additional support in a structured group setting. The program emphasizes the strengthening of school-appropriate social skills and independence in the day-to-day situations that school-aged children face, including interacting with peers, appropriately handling competitiveness, and working on teams.
Therapeutic programs are typically paid through private insurance (a child must have an autism diagnosis and ABA coverage). Our staff can determine for you if your insurance will cover IGNITE, RISE, or FOCUS. Private pay options are also available, and families can select a therapy frequency that is within their budget. For families with Medicaid that demonstrate economic hardship, Westside provides sponsorship that makes therapeutic programs more accessible.
