With several autism centers for children in the greater Chicago area, and more opening throughout Illinois, our goal is to build on the foundation of your child’s success by helping them gain independence and preparing them with school readiness skills. Each child’s autism treatment is tailored to meet their specific needs and delivered in a one-on-one setting by a certified ABA therapist (RBT).
