Majestic Minds Mission
Majesticminds Philosophy

Our Philosophy

At Majestic Minds, we believe that every child has the capability to learn when their environment is tailored for their unique needs. We prioritize catering to the needs of every child to provide an accessible and functional learning environment to promote healthy development. Our methods are based on the principles of Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA), and we strive to ensure our clients’ needs are met using evidence-based practices.

Early intervention therapy is more than reading, writing, and arithmetic. It is amongst the most important investments that families can make in those individuals with special needs as it is critical to reducing dependency. As such, we believe that it is of fundamental importance to:

  • Recognize and respect each child’s physical, emotional, and intellectual individuality, in a safe and encouraging environment.
  • Nurture self-esteem and creativity to ensure that each child develops according to their capacities and interests.
  • Offer programs that foster independence, self-confidence, and social responsibility, in conjunction with academic opportunities that promote the development of each child’s learning style.

Our Team

A passionate, empathetic, and caring team of therapists and professionals is the biggest strength of Majestic Minds Mental Health and Autism Services in Georgetown. Our passion lies in helping families, and their loved ones diagnosed with special needs.  Our goal is to provide support to our clients throughout their personal journeys. We are committed to making the lives of our clients and their families easier.
