As a 501c3, Children's Autism Center is owned by the community of Northeast Indiana. As such, our mission is to provide the highest quality, medically necessary therapy to all children with the need, regardless of ability to pay.


Our mission: "Children's Autism Center, Inc., is dedicated to providing the highest quality, medically supported therapy to children of all ages with autism and developmental/language delays in Northeast Indiana. Children's Autism Center, Inc., strives to maintain a tuition assistance fund so that all children with a need for services may benefit, regardless of ability to pay."

This mission statement was developed in 2005, when Children's Autism Center became the second ABA therapy center in the state of Indiana. Our focus remains the same but with renewed vigor we have seen firsthand the life-changing ability of ABA therapy.
