Treating Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Early treatment and proper care can improve a client’s symptoms and ability to function and reduce difficulties as they learn new skills. The wide range of issues facing those “on the spectrum” means that there is no single best treatment for ASD. Working closely with a doctor or healthcare professional is an important part of finding the right treatment program.
Pasadena Villa has experienced therapists and counseling staff that leverage cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and experiential therapy while using Pasadena Villa’s Social Integration Model™, which prepares clients life outside of treatment and for reaching the highest level of individual functioning possible. Contact our compassionate Admissions Team today to discuss treatment options and receive a confidential consultation.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) FAQs

There’s no blood test to diagnose autism spectrum disorder (ASD), however, a developmental screening can be used to evaluate social communication and social integration as well as restrictive and repetitive behaviors.
The Stables Autism Program accepts adult males and females (18 and older) who have ASD and have not achieved or sustained the level of social, academic, occupational, employment, and family function desired.
Pasadena Villa has a 25-year history of effectively treating individuals with ASD, and The Stables Autism Program is a culmination of that evidence-based treatment. We use a natural environment to engage individuals in evidence-based activities and strategies, in conjunction with Pasadena Villa’s Social Integration Model™, that allows for an improvement in social functioning.
