I cannot say enough good things about CSH!!!
I cannot say enough good things about CSH!!! Four years ago I had a kiddo that was just burned out of his last ABA program. No progress and no change to getting better, they just wanted to do the cookie cutter program. Homework and everyday routines caused daily tantrums and we couldn’t go out without fear of eloping. Plus the huge amounts of aggression we had to deal with daily. CSH walked in and that all changed. Finally we had a program that cared about my kid. Focused on his strengths and really took the time to get to know him and what he needed. We can do homework and daily routines without meltdowns and I don’t have to have a death grip on my son when we walk out in the community. I cannot thank Asha enough for what she has done for my son. Will is a great supervisor and Steph and Sarah are the two best therapists you can ask for. They are not just our supervisors and therapists, they are family. With CSH I have always felt we were very involved in the ABA process and that the CSH staff always treats you with respect and care. With CSH it’s more like a family working together than dealing with an agency that can’t bother to know your kiddo. Thank you CSH!
My Daughters progress
My daughter has been receiving services from Creative Solutions for Hope for almost a year now and we are very pleased. She has developed better eye contact when participating in a social interaction and is even starting to initiate conversations. In addition she has also made academic gains as their treatment strategies focus on “learning” from a behaviorist’s perspective. We still have many challenges ahead but we feel confident that Creative Solutions will help us address each issue one by one.
Creative Solutions for Hope has helped immensely with our son
Creative Solutions for Hope has helped immensely with our son. Asha Bhakta and her colleagues go above and beyond in finding the right program that works for our family. I would not recommend any other team of professionals for Applied Behavior Analysis. In the short three months of services, they have brought language out of my son that I thought he had lost years before. With their help, I truly believe that our son has a chance in life as an adult.
Asha and her team have helped our son tremendously
Asha and her team have helped our son tremendously. Having done biomedical approaches to heal his body, our son was ripe for behavioral intervention to learn how to interact more effectively. Asha listened to our concerns and immediately zeroed in on the problem areas with great accuracy. The social skills he is learning with her have been successfully transferring into the school setting.
How we discovered CSH
We discovered CSH from the different positive postings on the Yahoo Health Discussion Board by other parents. I called the posted number, and left a voice message, not really expecting a callback. I was pleasantly surprised to have Asha call me back, even if it was to say that they had no openings.
Luckily for us, they did and ever since then, we’ve had a wonderful team in [child’s] corner. Asha is on it, and the team effort and collaboration that we all contribute has already made a remarkable difference in my son’s life, in a very short time. The combination of the biomedical treatments and the ABA therapy are resulting in [child’s] progression to recovery. I’ve seen CSH as participants at the local Autism conferences & workshops that follow the DAN! Protocol, and I know they collaborate with DAN doctors and facilities in the OC area.
In addition, the empathy and respect from both the administration and therapist to both [child] and us as a family, I don’t think I would have gotten from the larger ABA providers. They have worked with us in all aspects: scheduling, financing, IEP meetings, & school site programs. I couldn’t think of a better partner than CSH and how they’ve helped us get this far. There’s definitely no looking back and we’re moving forward!!!
Thank you Mrs. Asha Bhakta
My children would have never made so much progress if it wasn’t for Mrs. Asha Bhakta and her team of therapists. When working with Mrs. Bhakta and her team I have found that they are very receptive, responsive and responsible when dealing with our children and family. They have treated my family like their own. Asha Bhakta and her team recognize all the problematic behaviors in my children and know how to properly and efficiently work together in decreasing the behaviors. Also, she has helped us getting the kids to have age appropriate behaviors/tasks. I contribute all the gains I have seen in my children to Mrs. Asha Bhakta and her team at Creative Solutions; it has been their persistence in working hard with my children that my children have gotten this far. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all your help and support. We can never repay you enough for all your priceless efforts you all have put towards my children.
A dedicated team
A dedicated team, prompt attention to our concerns and prompt resolutions of those concerns. I enjoy the activities for the children and families. Getting the families together with the staff at parties puts a face to the CSH organization. I like how we get to see more of CSH – more than just the therapists and supervisors coming to our home. I especially appreciate how the treat me child as an individual and are not forcing her to conform to a one-size-fits-all therapy approach, very personalized
Thank you CS for all you do
Thank you CS for all you do. We think Asha is wonderful and so interactive with everyone. Our supervisor Will is the best and always on top of everything. And our therapists Ciera and Vanessa are fantastic – even though they are newer to CS, they are always educating themselves, do a great job with my child and are enthusiastic about the work they do!
Four years ago we were at a loss with how best to help our son
Four years ago we were at a loss with how best to help our son. We had just begun receiving ABA services the previous year, but unfortunately it was with an agency that was not equipped to handle the unique needs of my nonverbal son. Through word of mouth I had heard about Asha and CSH. While CSH did not have the availability to provide services to my son at the time, we did ask Asha to conduct an assessment to help us understand the type of program my son would need. My son instantly took a liking to her. Watching Asha interact with him, I saw right away that many of my son’s behaviors were driven by his frustration over not knowing how to communicate. I realized that he had plenty to say, but we desperately needed help and training to manage those behaviors and develop communication. We put our names on CSH’s waiting list, and began services about six months later. The last four years have been a long road of bumps and obstacles with our school district, but through it all, CSH has been the one constant in my son’s home life. Asha is very hands on with our CSH team, taking into account the needs of our son’s evolving behaviors and always, always working on developing communication. When we decided on a modality of communication (the iPad), our CSH team made sure they were all trained on the app he was using. As we discovered biomedical reasons for my son’s delays and sought to educate ourselves on some of the newest autism breakthroughs, we were pleasantly surprised to see Asha and her team at the same seminars in our community. It’s this whole team approach and an extended family with everyone employed by CSH that have made such an impact on my son’s quality of life. Today my son remains quite challenged by his autism. However, with CSH’s help he is rising to those challenges and is able to communicate with intent via typed words on his iPad. We can never thank them enough for their continued support in helping him find and begin to use his voice at home and in the community.
Our son was diagnosed with LF Autism at 15 months old
Our son was diagnosed with LF Autism at 15 months old. He was completely unsocial, had no language, threw tantrums constantly, and only ate baby food until he was 4 years old.I was so fortunate to have found Asha and her then company, CSH! Asha began working with our son when he turned 4. Her therapists are the best in the industry and she is an admirable professional! She implemented programs and constantly tweaked them to fit the demands of my son’s needs. She worked side by side with her therapists and gave us the best Supervision we could have ever expected! I know, because I have used several agencies and hers is hands down the best! My son is now 8 years old and luckily still has Asha and her team, CSH working with us! My son is now considered as having HF Autism and most people can barely tell a difference anymore between him and his peers. He is social, outgoing, fun, and eating real food! I am so grateful to so many people at CSH and am so fortunate and blessed to have had them working with us all these years!!!
