Who We Are

Children’s Autism Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded by a small group of dedicated parents and staff members who wanted to improve the lives of others. Our passion continues today and defines who we are and what we do.

When a parent discovered in the late 1990s that ABA therapy improved the behavior and increased multiple domains of skills in her son who had been diagnosed with autism, she decided to share the therapy — and her Chicago-based BCBA — with more parents. Together, they hired staff who dedicated their lives to this work.

Several years later, in 2005, this group became the non-profit, Children’s Autism Center. Our goal to provide ABA therapy services to every child in need. Besides the center, home, community, and school-based services, our goal is to train parents to implement these ABA strategies with their child, regardless of their ability to pay. To date, CAC staff have served hundreds of children in Northeast Indiana.

We know it is critical to provide the highest-quality, most-effective treatment to your child as efficiently as possible. Our ABA therapy is a journey, with the parents alongside as the most valuable member of the team. We work together in determining the priority level of skill acquisition and behavior management, a process that takes knowledge, patience, and consistency.

At Children’s Autism Center, you will find a team dedicated to improving your child’s life along with the lives of your family. While we focus on remediating the symptoms of autism, our secondary goal is to equip you with the skills you need to teach your child across every environment, the two of you encounter.

Our Mission

Children’s Autism Center provides the highest-quality, medically supported therapy to children of all ages with autism and developmental/language delays in Northeast Indiana. Children’s Autism Center strives to maintain a tuition assistance fund so that all children with a need for services may benefit, regardless of ability to pay.
