Our Mission

The mission at Lighthouse Autism Center is simple: to bring the highest-quality ABA therapy services to the individuals and communities that need them. From humble beginnings with one center in Mishawaka, Indiana, Lighthouse Autism Center has boldly pursued this mission, bringing autism community services to thousands of families across the Midwest. Through compassionate care and clinical excellence, Lighthouse is making a difference in autism communities, one individual at a time.

Our Story

In 2004, Gregg and Sandy Maggioli’s son, Victor, was diagnosed with autism. As parents, they were committed to finding the best possible care for their son. In their pursuit, they discovered ABA therapy. Victor attended one of the first ABA centers in the state of Indiana, and Gregg and Sandy experienced firsthand the transformative impact of ABA therapy on their son, and their family.

It was from this experience that Lighthouse Autism Center was born. Gregg and Sandy had a passion for ABA and wanted to make sure that every child and family in the autism community had access to these life-changing services. And so, Lighthouse Fusion ABA Therapy was born.

Knowing the challenges each family faces, Lighthouse Autism Center is uniquely positioned to provide support to the entire family — from receiving a diagnosis to navigating insurance and finding the right service, and everything in between.

ABA Therapy is Transforming Lives

Lighthouse Values

Our values are proudly displayed within each Lighthouse center. It is a visual testament to the qualities and culture that we nurture within our practices. From the BCBA who accompanies a family to their child’s first dentist appointment, to the therapist who goes the extra mile to learn your child’s favorite song and dance, we have no doubt you will see and feel the Lighthouse values in each one of our centers, and across our autism community network.

See our values in action
  1. Be Compassionate. Care About People More than Anything.
  2. Be Trustworthy. Do the Right Thing.
  3. Be Courageous. Innovate and Take Responsibility for Your Results.
  4. Be Committed. Work Hard and Show Up for Others.
