Our Mission

At Helping Hands Therapeutic Services, we firmly believe that every person has the right to live a happy, successful life. Everyone grows and learns at different paces, and we believe in fully supporting each person to meet and overcome any challenge.

Our primary goal is to lend our helping hands to assist both the people we serve and the caregivers who love and support them. We want to see everyone learn new skills, gain independence, and live full and wonderful lives. We want their families to feel empowered, supported, respected, and appreciated throughout their unique journey.

We believe that progress depends on our full commitment, and we give no less than our best to make a positive difference in the lives of the people we serve.

Helping Hand

Our Services

Assessments
A New York Licensed Behavior Analyst (LBA) assesses your child’s unique learning needs using a variety of evidence-based methods and assessment tools.  These tools are used to guide the development of treatment plans by highlighting your child’s strengths and any potential areas for growth.

ABA Sessions
ABA sessions are run by our behavioral service providers; all of our service providers hold a certification from the Behavior Analyst Certification Board as a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) or they are pursuing advanced certification as a behavior analyst or assistant behavior analyst.  Sessions can be conducted in your home on a schedule that fits your family’s needs.

Ongoing Evaluation
Our LBAs monitor your child’s progress regularly through frequent meetings with the behavioral service provider(s), as well as data analysis and evaluation.  Programming is regularly updated as your child continues to grow and learn.

Parent/Caregiver Training
We firmly believe that you are the expert on your child, and we find your input and involvement invaluable throughout the treatment process.  Our LBAs are always eager to incorporate parents and caregivers into the treatment process and empower them as supporters and advocates for their child.

Parent/Caregiver Support Group
We know how valuable and important it is for parents and caregivers to share their story and develop a community with other people who understand their journey. Helping Hands offers opportunities for parents and caregivers to interact and support each other both in person and through our Facebook group.
