Enriching ABA Therapy & Support

Welcome! We are thrilled to have you here, especially knowing you are coming from Child’s Play Plus. Here is a little bit about the Children’s Autism Center. Our organization was founded by a group of parents and staff members who were passionate about making a difference in the autism community.

In the late 90s, one parent discovered the power of ABA therapy for her child with autism. She was amazed by the results and wanted to ensure that other parents had access to this therapy. So, she teamed up with a BCBA based in Chicago and other individuals to start our organization.

Today, we continue to be driven by the same passion to support children on the autism spectrum and their families. We aim to create a safe, nurturing environment where every child can thrive. We are excited to have you join us and participate in our mission. Welcome aboard!

Our Services

At the Children’s Autism Center, we are dedicated to providing effective ABA autism services supported by evidence. We offer assessments like the M-CHAT to help improve your child’s symptoms. Our services are available year-round, and we also offer additional programs in the summer for our community’s children.

ABA therapy works best when parents are involved. You play a vital role in our team, and together, we are committed to seeing your child thrive. We will provide a document detailing our experience, what to expect from us, and how you can contribute to your child’s progress. It’s a team effort, and everyone’s contribution matters.

If you have any questions about our services, please contact us at (260) 459-6040 or email intake@childrensautismcenter.org. We are here to support you every step of the way!

How we make a difference

"I love working at CAC because I have always felt truly supported by my coworkers and supervisors. There's always someone to help with anything I could possibly imagine asking for. It's obvious how much we care about each other, even when you are new to the facility. CAC and its staff genuinely care to help us all maintain "full cups" so that we may best serve our clients."

— L. L., RBT, South

"Growing up, I had an older stepbrother who was diagnosed with autism. He was in and out of different treatment centers, none that used ABA and none that truly helped him. I am now an older sister to an amazing 9-year-old boy who is diagnosed with autism and has a beautiful mind. I found out about ABA therapy a little over a year ago and wanted to learn more about it and autism in general. After obtaining my RBT certification and joining the ABA therapy world, I found services that would help my little brother and found the community I wanted to help! This has been the best decision I have made, and I do not plan on leaving this field any time soon, especially since joining Children's Autism Center!"

— B. B., RBT, Angola

"CAC will always have a special place in my heart! The care and compassion of working towards our goal and mission are one of the main reasons why I love working at CAC."

— A. S., Lead RBT, South

"I love seeing the faces parents make when you share an accomplishment their child made! Being able to make a difference in someone's life is the reason I love working at CAC."

— S. A., Lead RBT, South

"One of my all-time favorite memories here at CAC is when one of my clients (who I started with) went to school! I remember working on potty training with him and programs to prepare him for school, and now he is thriving! A constant reminder of why I love what I do!"

— A. S., Apprentice, South
