Wedgwood's Autism Center for Child Development
At the Autism Center for Child Development, we provide comprehensive early intensive behavioral intervention (EIBI) for young children with autism spectrum disorders. Our therapy is based on the principles of applied behavior analysis (ABA) and is individualized for each child.
Depending on the child’s needs, therapy may target the following areas:
• Language and communication
• Cognitive functioning
• Pre-academic skills
• Adaptive and self-help skills, including toilet training
• Safety skills
• Social skills
• Play and leisure skills
• Attending and social referencing
• Coping and tolerance skills
• Community integration
• Vocational skills
• Parent/caregiver training
• Reduction of interfering or inappropriate behaviors
We are currently enrolling children ages 18 months to 6 years who have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. Children may attend the Autism Center for Child Development up to 6 hours per day, 5 days per week, as their schedules allow. Additionally, parents attend training sessions periodically to learn techniques used during therapy so they can implement the strategies at home and in the community.
