Our Autism Center is designed specifically for parents and children ages 2 and up living with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) or similar developmental delays. Our services, based on principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), are designed with the child and family in mind. Each child has individual needs to be taken into consideration when deciding what services are appropriate.
We recognize the impact a diagnosis of ASD has on the entire family and offer support to strengthen each family’s unique circumstances through a variety of services.
The foundation of all services begins with evidence-based treatment, flexibility and a partnership with parents. To provide the best quality services, we make sure our staff are highly trained, caring professionals. Our behavioral consultants are highly educated, and all services provided are supervised by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA).
We recognize that this is a critical time of development for children and there are many barriers that make it difficult for some children to access needed services. Our goal is to help support parents and children receive the best quality services with a variety of funding options.
We provide the following services at different times throughout the year at the Autism Center:
- Social Groups
- ABA Classes
- Home Visits
- Parent University Courses
- Telehealth Services
Autism Center ABA Program
ABA is a proven, evidence-based therapy to help kids with ASD develop important skills to improve their lives. ABA uses the priniciples of reinforcement and focuses on teaching children how to communicate, ABA can also help minimize problem behaviors. We offer ABA in a variety of settings—including in-home, in-clinic, and, when approved, in a community setting.
ABA uses multiple tools to help children learn. This includes discrete trial training, natural environment teaching, and functional communication training. Performance is measured by an assessment, direct observation, and data collection.
