ReAttach is a multi-component intervention that is designed to help people on the autism spectrum improve their information processing which might help them to overcome problems in daily life functioning themselves.

It is a type of psychotherapy based on educational psychological observations, as examining the way in which children process information, emotions, and events.

ReAttach is designed to reconstruct this process to help individuals improve their information processing and to learn them new skills that they did not manage to teach themselves during previous development.

ReAttach is thought to comprise the following components: physical contact, arousal regulation, multiple sensory integration processing, conceptual thinking, altering cognitive biases.

ReAttach was developed by Weerkamp-Bartholomeus of the ReAttach Therapy Institute in the Netherlands.
