Autism Therapies and Services at Mustard Seeds

Mustard Seeds offers all therapies inclusive in a secure ranch setting that is comfortable and non-clinical in feel and appearance. The program is five days a week from 9:00a.m.-5:00p.m. All therapies at Mustard Seeds are provided by and/or are overseen by Board Certified Therapists.

Health & Behavior Intervention

Health and Behavior Intervention Services, or HBI Services, are used to identify psychological, behavioral, emotional, cognitive, and social factors critical for prevention and treatment of physical health problems. The focus is directed to the biopsychosocial factors important to problems and treatment.

HBI treatment includes a variety of approaches to increase appropriate behaviors and skills and encourage socially acceptable communication more automatically. The approach is done through applied behavior analysis (ABA) treatment programs that require intensive hours each week.

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)

Is provided in naturalistic settings that have been shown to help children with autism learn to apply new skills to new situations. We capitalize on this environment to promote Incidental Therapy, where normally occurring situations and the child's interest facilitate language learning. At all times, Mustard Seed’s ABA program is non-aversive; focusing instead on rewarding desired positive behaviors.

Speech Therapy

Includes both verbal and non-verbal cues -- such as facial expressions, tone of voice, and body language. Our children work on a wide range of skills including: receptive and expressive communication, verbal and non-verbal communication, speech pragmatics, conversation skills and concept skills.

Occupational therapy

Works on low muscle tone and coordination, as well as physical development. Occupational therapists work with our children through organized play to help them improve their fine and gross motor skills and thus improve their quality of life.

Life Skills

Our naturalistic environment prepares our children to be self sufficient. We offer all our therapy programs within a warm, safe, home-like environment set on a beautiful ranch. Children learn table manners and conversation skills as they eat their lunch at the kitchen table together. They are also taught other valuable life skills as they help with simple tasks around the ranch such as helping feed our horses. Other skills taught include traffic, water, and fire safety, as well as stranger danger topics and more.

Play Therapy

Provides a way for children to express their experiences and feelings through a natural, self-guided, self-healing process. As their experiences and knowledge are often communicated through play, it becomes an important vehicle for them to know and accept themselves and others. From a developmental point of view, play has been determined to be an essential component of healthy cognitive development.

Family / Parent / Group Counseling

Whether as a single parent or a struggling couple, too often our needs get lost in the focus of the day-to-day challenges of our amazing children. Our neighbors, friends, coworkers, even our parents usually just don't get it. Sadly, the numbers speak for themselves with higher rates of divorce, alcoholism and addiction amongst the parents of children with autism. Mustard Seeds believes in treating the whole family, in addition to the child, and as a result, offers individual, family, and marriage counseling for parents facing these incredible challenges. Whether confronting a devastating diagnosis that confirms a parent’s worst fears or struggling with the burden of the long struggle, Mustard Seeds wants parents to realize that they aren’t alone and give parents someone to talk with who truly understands their situation and is eager to help.

Our Licensed Counselors and Social Workers have over 100 years of combined clinical experience-in the field-and are dedicated to helping in every way they can. We have a monthly support group, in addition to our individual and marital counseling, which supports the entire family. After attending our support groups, our parents have the opportunity to go have a date, while we engage their children in fun learning activities.
