Meeting the complex needs of a person or child with autism can put a family under great stress. It takes a toll on them both emotionally and financially, sometimes even physically. It takes a concrete system of support and expert help to lift some of the burdens from the families and help them work out a system that is not stressful or anxiety-inducing. At KGH Autism Services, Kim Hoehne’s team of expert therapists provides support to autistic children and their families.
KGH Autism Services is an Accredited Behavioral Health Center of Excellence®, is state-of-the-art, and has a multidisciplinary team offering several types of therapy, suited to the needs of the autistic child. The clinic also helps to identify the level on the autism spectrum where the child stands before providing them with the therapy that is most effective and suited to their needs.
Kim Hoehne is the founder of KGH Autism Services and works one-on-one with the clients just as much as the trained therapists at the clinic. Kim has a desire and passion to help children and families understand autism and develop a therapy plan that will benefit the whole family.
The success level of an autistic child depends not only on the therapist but also on the support of the entire family. Many therapy sessions tend to include the entire family to help them better connect with their child and allow them to form bonds that would otherwise be impossible to do. Even siblings have a chance to connect with their autistic brother or sister, which helps them understand them better. Usually, these sessions lead to connections being formed that last a lifetime.
The inclusion of the family is not limited to therapy sessions. The KGH center has many different rooms for parents, such as observation rooms where they can stand and observe their children as they work with their therapists in classes and various other settings. It also has a waiting room for parents that acts as a rest area. Kim has often found parents sleeping or simply resting while their children are in sessions.
The Clinic also offers a variety of events for the autism community, including monthly parent support groups with free childcare, seminars, sibling support groups, and free screenings and insurance checks. Kim ensures that KGH offers the highest quality of therapy to autistic individuals, by hiring people who not only possess the proper credentials for the job but are also compassionate individuals who share her passion for helping these children and their families reach their required goals.
