When to seek help

Why chose OpenMinds

CONDITIONS TREATED

THERAPIES OFFERED

At the OPENMINDS Child & Adolescent Intervention, our beliefs and values are the cornerstones of our practice. 

Some of these values are:

 Understanding: We always exert our efforts into understating the relationship dynamics between families, children, schools, and therapists.  This also applies to a more personal understanding of a learner’s abilities, a family’s individual capability and needs, as well as a school’s individual efforts with the student. We reflect this understanding by individualizing each assessment, program, and workshop to the needs of our clients.

 Transparency: At OPENMINDS we deal with the most valued individuals and their progress, which ultimately affect the quality of their life. For that reason, we understand and encourage the participation of all parties involved in that child’s life, including but not limited to, parents, teachers’ caretakers, and all members of the family who wish to partake in, or observe, the therapy sessions. We practice the utmost transparency during and after our meetings and sessions.

 Evidence-based procedure: At the heart of our practice lies the need for evidence-based practice and programs. For that reason, at OPENMINDS, we base all our decisions and intervention on evidence collected from the child or a qualified observer. Based on that data, rather than speculation, we proceed in modifying, increasing, or decreasing intervention.

 Teamwork: A vital part of any successful program is teamwork and collaboration between all parties involved. At OM we seek to work hand-in-hand with our extensive team of professionals from varying expertise and specialties.

Vision

We started The OPENMINDS Child Intervention with the hope of reaching out to as many families as we could, but also to deepen and strengthen the impact that intervention has on a family’s overall wellbeing. It is with encouragement, teamwork, and persuasion that we shed a light on the importance of scientifically proven evidence-based intervention

Mission

The OPENMINDS Child Intervention aims to provide a holistic approach to intervention. We ultimately seek to improve the quality of life for each child and his/her loved ones. The intervention strategies and therapy will constantly be in synchronization with the current research findings from the most recent reach and experienced scholars in the field.
