The Place for Children with Autism

UPDATED: March 30, 2021

The Place for Children with Autism is a comprehensive, full day ABA therapy in a pre-school like setting for children with autism ages 2-6. We provide structured social activities that mirror a typical preschool setting but also include one-to-one support and individualized lesson plans. Social activities throughout the day include circle time, lunch, social games, and group activities (e.g., music, art, yoga, dance, etc.). We have small classrooms with a BCBA on-site, parent training, and social skills groups. We also provide speech therapy in select locations. The goal of our programs are to prepare your child for a successful transition into school settings and increase their skills related to socialization, communication, behavior, and independent life skills. We also provide speech therapy in select locations.
