Autism Support

The journey of autism can be overwhelming, especially for a family with a newly diagnosed child. How do we deal with this unexpected turn in our lives? Which types of therapies are right for my child? Why doesn’t Medicaid cover these services? The process of finding the right provider should not be taken lightly. At The Place for Children with Autism, we take the time to educate our families of their options. We invite all families to come tour our centers and meet with an outreach specialist.

Autism Support

Hear From Our Families

Parents and caregivers are an active participant in your child’s therapy and development. We require all families to engage in parent training meetings at a minimum of once a month. During these meetings we will discuss your child’s progress, discuss any concerns you may have, and focus on teaching you basic ABA principles to ensure you understand how to best support your child’s development.
