Autism in Ocala:   We wish to open an Autism center here in Ocala Florida.  As previous board members of Ocala Autism Support Network, we were able to see first hand what families who have children on the Autism Spectrum needed and were missing.  In an effort to be able to provide these services, therapies and assistive devices, KidGenius was born.

Play Project Scholarship Available NOW!!

By delsadarline, Aug 3 2015 04:42PM

The PLAY Project® (Play & Language for Autistic Youngsters) is an evidence-based developmental intervention for families of young children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The PLAY Project is the pragmatic application of the theory of DIR® (Developmental Individual Differences & Relationship-Based)/Floortime™ and emphasizes the importance of helping parents become their child’s best PLAY partner. The PLAY Project was founded in 2001 by Richard Solomon, M.D. out of Ann Arbor, Michigan. Dr. Solomon developed this program in response to the lack of intensive early intervention services for children with ASD.

Urban Counseling is part of a grass roots movement led by KidGenius to provide Autism Services for our families here in Ocala, FL. We understand the need for local services and want to empower the parents of children on the spectrum by provideing them with a newly evidence based form of therapy.

Research has found that the Play Project can help lessen the severity of Autism. We are able to provide this form of therapy at a much more affordable costs to families as well as provide them with the tools necessary to assist their child on a day to day basis outside of the theraputic enviorment.
