Youth & Family Services of Virginia (YFSVA)

The ASSET Program is designed to offer holistic, innovative, research-based treatment to children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families.  ASD is a pervasive disorder that affects almost every aspect of behavior; primary symptoms include lack of or delay in speech, poor nonverbal communication, repetitive movement, diminished social interests, restricted play skills and poor generalization of skills.  The ASSET Program is designed to improve the functional behaviors of the individual by using and coordinating multi-disciplinary clinical services to increase the adaptive functioning, behavioral skills, social skills and communication skills.  Additionally, family members receive the education, support and training needed to reinforce the treatment of their child and to maintain the changes made while in treatment.  Families are provided essential case management services to address advocacy within the community including educational advocacy and linkage to therapeutic and medical services pertinent to their child’s needs.  Treatment strategies are based primarily on the principles of Applied Behavioral Analysis, recognized as the leading treatment modality for positive change for this population. Families are served by interdisciplinary teams of Clinicians, LBA Supervisors, Engagement Managers and Behavioral Coaches.
