We are in the process of conducting research at our clinics in Southern California to gain a deeper understanding of how wellness plays a role in the quality of life for children on the spectrum. Understanding how practical wellness interventions impact a child’s ability to function will create a new world of possibilities for them to reach their fullest potential.
