Powerful therapy. Statewide footprint. Encouraging results.

At the Center for Autism, our outpatient sessions rely heavily on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy. For every learner, we place a heavy focus on improving communication, social skills, life skills, coping skills, and other skills for transitioning into a less restrictive setting, as well as alternative behaviors for maladaptive behaviors.

What exactly is ABA therapy? We’re glad you asked.

ABA therapy is, at its core, made up of scientifically proven teaching strategies. ABA therapy helps turn little steps into big skills, building independence along the way.

If you’ve met one person with autism, you’ve met one person with autism.

We believe each learner is special in his or her own way. No two are the same. That’s why we don’t have a generalized approach. For those as young as 18 months up to 21 years old, we’re here to provide highly personalized therapy and support.

We’re more than a facility. We’re a family.

At the Hope Network Center for Autism, we support each other. We join each other on life’s journey. And we have each other’s backs. As much as we’re a clinical provider, we care deeply about the families and communities we serve.

Our team includes a neuropsychologist, behavior analysts, behavior technicians, and other clinical experts who provide support and advocacy, giving those we serve a wrap-around model of care.

It’s normal for parents to have these questions like, "What should we expect now that we have an autism diagnosis? What therapy options are available? How quickly can we get started?" Don’t be overwhelmed. We can provide the answers you need.
