The facility serves children ages 2-18 with autism spectrum disorder through one-on-one therapy and other programs both for children and parents.
The center has a behavior therapist and technician for the one-on-one therapy that is designed to establish a plan that will reduce challenging behaviors and work toward more appropriate behavior, according to Melanie Worix, a board certified behavior analyst and the center's director.
The facility has various wings dedicated to different age groups that include a sensory room and classrooms to help transition children back into school settings.
There are also rooms that help children work on their interpersonal relationships and form friendships through the social skills program.
Ultimately, the goal is to increase the children's independence over time, Worix said.
