Welcome To Our Clinic

Lindegard Therapy provides Applied Behavior Analysis & Speech Language Pathology  services in Beaverton and Hillsboro, Oregon and its surrounding areas. At Lindegard Therapy, we know that all children can learn but that some children learn differently than others. For this reason, we offer treatment that is tailored to the individual and built on a solid family-centered platform. Our interventions focus on improving your child’s social, communicative and daily living abilities by creating a learning-rich environment designed to target these skill areas, while also maintaining an open and collaborative relationship with you as the family.

Our Approach

At Lindegard Therapy we believe that a combined and collaborative approach to therapy is most beneficial to your child. For this reason, we combine both services to develop research-based holistic practices that best fit your child’s needs. 

Quality (not quantity) is most important to us. Every family is unique and there is no one prescribed method for conducting therapy and working with families. We believe wholeheartedly that the family drives the service delivery model and that your input and participation is at the core of treatment goals and progress. We take time to build strong and lasting relationships and understand that YOU play the biggest role in your child’s life.

Our Core Values

The 5 C’s

Consistency

All of us, kids included, learn through repetition, and therefore consistency is key to providing effective therapy. Our sessions are routine-based which keeps kids on track and optimizes learning opportunities for successful treatment outcomes. 

Collaboration

Integrative collaboration is built into our therapy model to ensure that goals are being addressed through a multi-disciplinary lens – Rather than sending families to multiple therapy clinics to meet their child’s needs, we provide all necessary services in house for your child to thrive – Speech Therapy (ST) & Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).

Child-centric care

Good quality therapeutic services center around the individual child and their therapy team – every child is different and requires a unique approach to therapy; we provide ongoing support and intensive supervision to ensure high quality of care. Each child receives the one on one attention that they need to succeed and each clinician receives ongoing direct supervision beyond board standards.

Community

At Lindegard Therapy building a sense of community is as important for each child as it is for each therapist to foster an environment conducive to growth and understanding. Everyone has individual strengths that should be recognized and nurtured.

Clinician development

All of our clinicians are dedicated and compassionate when it comes to working with kids and families. Child development is our focus and professional development helps clinicians provide more effective treatment to meet the goals we set for our clients.
