The Autism Center of The Studer Family Children's Hospital at Sacred Heart offers a range of services for children on the autism spectrum, including:
- Direct, individualized Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy. ABA is a research-based, systematic method for improving socially significant skills and behaviors.
- Parent instruction and hands-on training
- Social skills groups for various ages
- Group training for families and professionals
At the Autism Center, we understand that each family has unique needs, and we strongly encourage you to be an active participant in your child’s therapy sessions, since family involvement makes an enormous impact on the effectiveness of a child's treatment. You are a valued member of your child’s care team, and your input regarding your child’s goals and treatment is a valued and necessary component of our services.
We also understand families need help and support in order to improve their child’s behavior, communication and social skills. To help your child succeed and to support you along this journey, we offer parent-training classes, individual consultation and hands-on instruction to maximize progress and achieve more significant gains.
