Find an Autism Center Near You – Ages and Locations
No matter which LAC center you walk into, you will receive the same Lighthouse experience: Highly qualified therapists, one-on-one care, beautifully decorated, clean and safe centers, toys for all ages, and a warm and welcoming center. While the centers are similar in many ways, one way the centers differ is in the age groups they serve.
Mishawaka: Mishawaka is the only location that currently has two centers. The first center serves children from birth to five years of age and largely focuses on preparing children for school. The second location focuses on serving children from six to eleven years old (and sometimes older) and involves working on school skills as well as early life skills.
Plymouth: The Plymouth center serves the widest age range of children from two years old to sixteen years old. As a result, there are a wide variety of skills incorporated into therapy at this location depending on the child’s age and skill set.
Warsaw: In Warsaw, the center mainly serves children two to twelve years of age and focuses both on skills used to transition children back to school as well as some early-life skills.
Portage, Michigan: Similar to the Warsaw center, the LAC in Portage also serves children two to twelve years of age and focuses both on school skills as well as early-life skills.
While each center has a primary age group they serve, it’s important to remember that therapy is tailored to your child’s skills and needs and will always be unique to your child in order to help them reach their fullest potential.
