Welcome to www.HeartforListening.com

At the Thede Family Center for Autism and Neurodevelopmental
Disorders, we believe that autism and similar conditions affect the entire
family, so we are dedicated to helping the entire family. We use an
integrative approach, selecting the types of psychotherapies best suited for
the particular problems you are currently facing. Individuals on the
autism spectrum have diverse needs which vary from one developmental
phase to the next, and many people with autism also struggle with mood
disorders, attention disorders, and an entire host of accompanying
conditions. Therefore, we take into account the unique needs of the
individual and family when developing treatment plans, because
"one size does not fit all."
