We are dedicated to celebrating the lives of individuals on the autism spectrum through learning, support, and solutions. We achieve this by building innovative, individualized programs and cultivating meaningful, impactful relationships with individuals, families, and communities we serve.
Firefly Autism is changing the landscape of behavioral and mental health. Working with individuals from 18 months to over 70-years of age, we are one of the few places in Colorado where everyone, including adults, are not only welcome, but are also receiving support.
With collaboration from families and other providers, we deliver services through individualized behavioral plans and instructional goals that meet the client’s interests, values, and support needs. At Firefly Autism, we believe in using the principles of assent-based and values-based practices to ensure a person-centered approach to Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) therapy.
Continuously gaining and seeking approval during all interactions to ensure the utmost safety, care, and respect of all individuals. Client assent is an integral part of treatment at Firefly Autism, as we believe it is of vital importance to teach our clients self-advocacy skills and to respect the wishes and boundaries that they communicate to us.
Ongoing and active listening approach to ensure client values guide therapeutic interactions. At Firefly Autism, we strive to provide our clients with the skills and accommodations needed to thrive in their environment and provide caregivers with the knowledge and support to maintain their success outside of therapy sessions.
"Meeting everyone where they are at, celebrating individuality and differences, and encouraging meaningful growth is at the heart of what the Firefly team does every day."
