Therapist for Childhood Autism on Long Island

Get Started

Specialized Therapy for Autism Spectrum Disorder in Children

Autism, as a spectrum, means that the needs, behaviors, and experiences can vary considerably in between any two individuals. Yet, no matter the symptoms, society is generally not well set up to support those that need that additional help.

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) presents unique challenges for children, impacting their communication, behavior, and social interactions. Long Island Psychology is dedicated to providing specialized, evidence-based therapy to support children with autism in navigating these challenges and achieving their full potential.

We have three offices available, located in Garden City, Rockville Centre, and Roslyn Heights, NY, offer a supportive and understanding environment where your child can develop essential skills and thrive. Contact us today through our online form or by phone to begin.

Autism and Its Impact on Children

Autism can manifest in various ways, and each child’s experience with the disorder is unique. Common characteristics of autism in children include:

  • Communication Difficulties – Challenges with verbal and non-verbal communication, including delayed speech and difficulty understanding social cues.
  • Repetitive Behaviors – Engaging in repetitive activities or rituals and exhibiting a strong preference for routines.
  • Social Challenges – Difficulty interacting with peers and forming relationships.
  • Sensory Sensitivities – Heightened sensitivity to sensory stimuli such as sounds, lights, or textures.

Our approach to treating autism focuses on understanding each child’s unique needs and providing tailored support and strategies.
