The Greenhouse Autism Early Intervention Program utilizes a child-led and relationship-based intervention that supports development in a way that is neurodivergent-affirming.
Our goal is not to make an autistic child not autistic.
Our goal is to make an autistic child struggle less.
When children receive intervention before the struggles get big or when they are really young, the overall quality of that child’s life improves, long-term.
