About Us

Our Approach to Autism Therapy

Compassionate Care Meets Clinical Excellence

At Lighthouse Autism Center, we offer the highest quality therapy in a beautiful play-based environment. With an innovative ABA therapy model called Lighthouse Fusion, children make greater progress, faster, all while having fun.

Children are immersed in imaginary spaces where they can naturally explore their interests, engage in sensory experiences, and practice language. Each child’s progress can be seen in smiles and laughter, because we know children learn best when they’re having fun.

We believe each child has unique and unlimited potential. At Lighthouse, we are committed to bringing together compassionate care and clinical excellence to unlock that potential and help each child achieve the possible.

Lighthouse Fusion: Fusing ABA and Speech

ABA has long been the gold-standard for autism therapy. Research shows that building motivation and rewarding success is effective in delivering superior outcomes for children. Lighthouse Fusion applies these same principles to speech development in a one-of-a-kind therapy program. Developed by a team of dually certified clinicians at Lighthouse Autism Center, some of only a handful in the entire country, the program brings together experts in the fields of speech and ABA to collaborate on goal development, deliver therapy, and celebrate each child’s progress.

“The staff are amazing! Every person is always so friendly and polite. Every morning they greet Christian with enthusiasm and he looks forward to going to Lighthouse. Christian’s BCBA is always prompt in her communications with any news, questions, or concerns and the entire team is so attentive. Christian has food allergies and the therapists contacted us to remove an item we had accidentally sent in his lunch. It gave us so much confidence in that attention to detail for Christian!”

“You have opened up a whole new world of opportunity to Liam and our family. You have taken a little boy who could easily be overlooked, or left behind, and you have accepted and loved him for who he is. You see him, truly see him. You have changed the entire path of my son’s life and for that I am forever grateful.”

– Liam’s Mom

“I called Lighthouse and said ‘my child is showing signs of autism, I don’t know what to do.’ You helped me get him diagnosed, start ABA and now my son is graduating. He has grown into a completely different child. He wasn’t able to feed himself, dress himself, walk, and he was nonverbal. Looking at him now, you wouldn’t have a clue he couldn’t do all of those things. That’s thanks to all of you.”

“When Wyatt first began at Lighthouse, he had very few words; he mainly communicated by holding our hand and taking us to what he wanted. There was very little eye contact, very little response to his name, and no following of directions. Fast forward and Wyatt responds to his name, he is vocally communicating, he is following directions. The progress we have seen has been life changing for Wyatt and our family.”
