Our Services

Children's Autism Center offers a variety of evidence-based ABA services complemented by a variety of assessments such as the M-CHAT with the goal of re-mediating the symptoms of autism. Services are offered year-round with additional programming occurring in the summer for children in the community.

We use a variety of tools from the ABA toolbox. For example, teaching social skills can occur in 1:1 ABA Therapy (in any environment), in Speech Therapy, in Social Skills groups, and in Summer Bridge. We will provide you with our recommendation of services on intake. Our recommendations are made based on your clinician's recommendation, best practice (as determined by decades of research), and our own assessment.

ABA therapy requires parent involvement. You will be provided with a Parent Manual upon enrollment which outlines our procedures. You will also be provided with a document that describes our experience and training, what you can expect from us, and what we need from you to maximize your child's progress. This treatment is a team effort—understanding each member's role is vital to the success of the team.

There are instances in which a client will be discharged. You will be provided with this criteria upon intake. Examples of discharge criteria includes scheduling conflicts (prohibiting client attendance), consistent lack of parents following through on team goals, and mastery of all targets/client met criteria for transition.
