Clinic-Based Programs at Pivot Point provide an opportunity for children, youth, and adults to generalize new skills learned in home therapy programs. Skills are generalized by having clients work with novel/different instructors, using new stimuli/program materials, in a clinic based setting that maximizes learning through peer interaction. Pivot Point’s clinics give learners effective and cost efficient access to safe settings in which they can learn and grow with their peers…all within their home communities.
