Direction Therapy CMT
Direction Therapy CMT is a clinical intervention initially designed for young adults with autism. Direction Therapy CMT treatments are rooted in the latest scientific literature integrating cognitive behavioral therapy, development theory, and neuropsychology into an evidence based treatment approach. The success of the model has widened its scope of use to a broader population of young adults (with and without developmental delay).
The Direction Therapy CMT approach helps to prepare young adults for an independent life. It brings together therapeutic services including psychology and psychiatry, vocational training, academic support services, and life management skills training into a comprehensive service plan. Each client's Direction Therapy CMT Service Plan then guides services and clinical treatment. Read our full description of Direction Therapy CMT by clicking HERE...
Direction Therapy CMT at New Directions
New Directions for Young Adults - a flagship facility for the treatment of autism with the Direction of Therapy CMT model and the first of its kind in the country, was established in 2007 and now comprehensively treats approximately 60 to 80 clients annually. Clients live in their own apartments with community based professional services. The Direction Therapy CMT model has been so effective that health care providers and insurance companies are enthusiastically embracing it as an option offering markedly improved patient outcomes at substantially lower cost, compared with competing methodologies.
Direction Therapy CMT Research
The International Society for Autism (ISAresearch.org), along with Professor Robert Schleser, Ph.D. and doctoral students from his laboratory at the Illinois Institute of Technology have partnered in a research initiative to evaluate evidence-based components of Direction Therapy CMT. The research is evaluating the significant factors that account for long-term transitional success using the Direction Therapy model. Outcomes are analyzed longitudinally using variables such as vocational success, academic success, and measurements of psychopathology. This research initiative funded by the International Society for Autism (ISAresearch.org) includes an examination of the factors that predict academic achievement, social skills, and daily living skills for young adults with ASD. These studies also examine the significance of differences between Dt compared to traditional therapeutic modalities and interventions.
