What it Means to be Transdisciplinary

June 5, 2024

Have you ever wished your autism support team could all get on the same page? Between your child’s speech pathologist, occupational therapist, and mental health therapist, we understand the struggle many families face when gathering information and making important decisions for their loved one. Often, therapists and specialists work independently within their practice area, and lack the communication needed to provide a full view of each client’s progress. That’s why we adopted a unique, groundbreaking approach to autism therapy care.

A Transdisciplinary Approach

Here at Positive Development, we believe in practicing a transdisciplinary approach for providing the best possible care and results for your family. Our holistic approach transcends disciplinary boundaries to allow our team of therapists to work together to determine the best plan of action for your child.

“Positive Development is revolutionizing autism services,” says Dr. Jennie Trocchio, PhD. VP of Clinical Operations. “To have a whole company that can come together and everyone does their piece to make sure everyone’s supported… that doesn’t exist anywhere else.”

Here’s how it works: Our team of therapists, including specialists in the areas of mental health, speech, occupational therapy, feeding therapy and preschool preparation, work under one roof to contribute their respective knowledge and expertise to form shared methodologies, and ultimately create a single development plan for each client. This team-based approach ensures your child is treated as a functioning whole, and that their best interests are always at the forefront of every decision made.

Autism Services, Simplified

Our transdisciplinary approach allows our clients and their families to receive the holistic care they need without the burden and inconvenience of visiting different offices where occupational, speech, mental health, and other therapists and specialists are working in silos. As a result, your day-to-day life is made easier, and ultimately, our client growth is enhanced.

At Positive Development, we’re proud to work together to build personalized plans that make it easier for families to receive necessary services and help us create connections more quickly with our clients that shape their futures for years to come.
