The Shafer Center
The Shafer Center for Early Intervention is committed to providing resources and treatment to children on the autism spectrum from the age 18 months to age 10 and support services to their families. The Shafer Center for Early Intervention uses a multi-disciplinary approach to address each child’s specific needs. These disciplines include speech-language pathology, Applied Behavioral Analysis and Verbal Behavior, occupational therapy, and Relationship Development Intervention™ (RDI). The teaching techniques from each discipline are integrated into the Center’s core curriculum. This multi-faceted approach helps children to learn in a variety of different ways and to become flexible learners in the classroom and in the community at large.
