is a specialized, speech and language private practice that is located in Atlanta, Georgia. It was formerly located in Monterey, California until 2012. The practice has been designed to serve children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), including autism, Asperger's Syndrome, and related social learning disabilities (PDD-NOS, NLD, etc.), from birth to adolescence, their families, and those involved in their care (clinicians, educators, and paraprofessionals). At Communication Crossroads, we recognize that both social-communication and emotional regulation play a central role in typical child development and that vulnerabilities in these areas compromise a child's developmental path, his or her ability to form satisfying relationships, and his or her ability to independently adapt to the demands of different social environments.
Given the limited number of trained professionals in the field of autism and the growing number of programming options, we at Communication Crossroads are strongly committed to providing educational workshops for educators, service providers, and administrators who are seeking guidelines for implementing therapeutic/educational plans that are grounded in current research and our understanding of childhood development and family-centered care. We are also strongly committed to providing quality assessment services for families of children with ASD.
