The mission of the ROOTS Clinic is to provide the support system for students to meaningfully access their educational experience.
The Roots Clinic at APL is licensed by the Department of Health, Division of Behavioral Health Resources as a Licensed Behavioral Health Agency to deliver ABA services. This provides an additional layer of quality control for clinical services and helps streamline our practices at both the departmental level and the individual provider level.
Overview of Services
The mission of the ROOTS Clinic is to provide the support system for students to meaningfully access their educational experience. To implement this mission, the ROOTS Clinic provides ABA therapy (Applied Behavior Analysis therapy) within APL’s classrooms. ABA therapy has been demonstrated in research as the primary effective treatment for autism, and can also be successfully used to support individuals with other diagnoses or needs. To ensure a high quality and clinically sound service package for every student in need of our services, our professional team includes staff certified and licensed across a range of organizations regulating our practice.
Utilizing the backend infrastructure set up for our ABA therapy, we have been able to support the development of an SLP (speech language pathology) service and will soon be adding additional services.
