What Makes the GLS Approach Different?

Our approach is to not lock you into any one narrow way of treating.  We believe in allowing clinicians to find their best path to professional development and greatness in treating. GLS founder, Patrick Hoban, has synthesized multiple treatment paradigms into the GLS philosophy of evaluation and treatment, as well as always being open to how other approaches are different than ours can still have great validity and success.
