We help guide you and your child

Do you suspect your child has autism? Your first step is a phone screening. After that, your child will receive a comprehensive evaluation by a licensed psychologist who has experience working with children with autism. This process helps us identify whether or not your child could benefit from autism services.

Our autism program offers intensive, in-home behavioral services for children aged 2 to 8 and non-intensive services to all children, teens and young adults with autism. We also offer weekly social skills classes and psychiatric management.

We work closely with your insurance company to help you understand how your benefits cover our services.
