Our Autism Story

Our Mission

Our mission at Lighthouse Autism Center is simple. Bring the highest quality ABA therapy services to communities that need it. From humble beginnings with one center in Mishawaka, Indiana, Lighthouse Autism Center has boldly pursued that mission, bringing ABA services to thousands of families across the Midwest. Through compassionate care and clinical excellence, Lighthouse is making a difference for children with autism, one community at a time.

Where It All Started

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. It was during that pursuit that 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 for 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 had access to these life changing services.

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.
