Erik Young's bio

This content was provided by Erik Young "Erik specializes in working with children and teens diagnosed with autism, intellectual disability and behavior disorders. He was a clinician for Devereux for over 13 years before he started his private practice. Eleven years ago, Erik and his wife decided to try to take what they know worked in the clinical setting and apply it at home. To this end, they started to provide foster care for special needs children. The result has been a sometimes frustrating, but always enlightening and wonderful roller coaster ride. Erik quickly learned that what was possible in the clinical setting was not always workable in the home setting. He learned that even when the behaviors were manageable, life with an autistic child is very different from that of the neurotypical child. A fact that is not always apparent to his fellow clinicians. Today, he combines this hard won personal experience with what he knows works in the clinic to help families support their loved ones. He loves being the parent of his special "crew" and he wants nothing more than to help other parents love what they do too."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Erik Young "Parenting is Hard. Parenting a child with special needs is harder.

It's one of the odd facts of life that kids don't come with owner's manuals.  If your child happens to have special needs, the situation becomes that much more confusing.

You, as a parent want nothing more than to help your child.  It's what parents do when their children are struggling and hurting. You try to make it all better.  Sometimes though, love just isn't enough.  Sometimes you just don't know what to do to help your child.  It can leave you feeling helpless.

 

You are not alone.  These feelings are very common to many parents.

I know, I've been there.  I know from both personal and professional experience that feeling of helplessness.  I also know that it often takes just a few minor changes to make a big difference in your child's life.

No matter the nature of his struggle, be it autism, ADHD, or some other challenge, you can learn how to support your child.  You have what it takes to make things better.

 

My name is Erik Young.  I have spent the last 20 years working with special individuals and their families facing incredible challenges ranging from autism to head trauma.  I know from personal experience the challenges inherent in parenting special needs children.  I've been where you're at.  "
