Perceptions around autism are changing in Australia. With every passing year, we learn more about the diverse nature of the autism ‘spectrum’, allowing us to better appreciate its demands, so we can in turn provide appropriate therapy to those in need. Autism is a condition found in a large number of the population, affecting development and other aspects of their lives, especially in regards to how they interact with their environment and those around them. The degree varies with every person, as is demonstrated by the spectrum, in which it is shown that, just like in all walks of life, no two people with autism are exactly the same. At Cloud Nine Therapy, we undertake a personalised approach to autism therapy for those throughout Parramatta, Glenwood, Castle Hill, Blacktown and beyond, with the purpose of getting to know each individual in order to create the optimal strategies for overcoming difficulties faced.
As the most common issues experience by those with autism are social interactions, communication, and repetitive behaviours, goals and objectives cannot be formulated – nor implemented – by the person alone. In order to achieve the best results possible with autism therapy, it is important to work collaboratively with all concerned parties. For example, parents, carers, and schools must all come together to find realistic solutions for a child with autism in their own environments, which will both combat their weaknesses and embolden their strengths. Our therapists will also deliver extensive suggestions for techniques and resources available that will support all facets of a child’s life, such as their communication with others, learning, and development. Beyond this, therapy will revolve around building the child’s fine and gross motor skills, learning and organisational abilities, and self-care routines, to give them not only more autonomy, but also a bolstered self-image.
