• Mission

    Let each become all that he was created capable of being.

    –Thomas Carlyle

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

    At Stichting REACH Holland, all clients are given every opportunity to thrive and become all they are capable of being. At REACH, each child will be treated as an individual to be understood rather than a problem to be solved. We will take the whole family and its well-being into account. Ultimately, the goal is to make available all community resources and services for children with ASD under one roof.

    Additionally, we aim to contribute to the availability of services in The Hague and surrounding municipalities overall.  Staff training is provided using evidence-based procedures derived from studies in behavior analysis*. Staff members will be given opportunities to gain more advanced training in behavior analysis, as well as certifications. Professional development will be available at all levels.
