'REACHing our goal for growth!'

On April 2, 2016 - World Autism Awareness Day - after almost 3 years - we began the pilot of Stichting REACH Holland, a not-for-profit English speaking care facility for children on the autism spectrum in The Hague, The Netherlands.  

At REACH, we see each child as an individual to be understood rather than a problem to be solved.  Each child receives individualized assessment and treatment and is supported to reach their full potential.  Our focus is not merely on day-to-day functioning, but on helping every child to thrive. 

Our mission is to bring high-quality evidence based services to English speaking children with an autism spectrum disorder in The Hague.  Additionally, to provide a place where all stakeholders--the children, their families and staff--have the support they need to thrive.

At REACH we strive to provide a supportive learning environment for children and staff alike.  We will provide training opportunities for professional development at every level.  New employees will be given the opportunity to develop skills in ABA techniques such as discrete trial teaching, analyzing problem behaviors and encouraging communication. 

Thank you so much for your generosity and support as the journey of REACH continues.
