Lighthouse Autism Center is coming to Warsaw and will be opening it’s doors on July 9th, 2013.
The center is NOW ENROLLING!
The Warsaw center will be located at 1535 Provident Drive, Warsaw, IN 46580 in the Bowen Center Building.
Lighthouse Autism Center (LAC) utilizes Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), an intensive therapy that focuses on the principles and techniques of learning theory to help improve social behavior. ABA therapy helps to develop new skills, shape and refine previously learned skills, and decrease socially significant problem behaviors. Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) is the only Autism therapy that is endorsed by the US Surgeon General because of the decades of research supporting it.
ABA therapy at Lighthouse is conducted in a 1:1 setting (1 therapist working with 1 child). Each child goes through an in depth assessment conducted by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and other clinical team members to determine their current skill set and what skills might need to be improved upon.

Together we can make a difference for your child.
MISHAWAKA, Ind. — Some studies say as many as 1 in 50 children have autism. The Lighthouse Autism Center on Edison Lakes Parkway in Mishawaka is working to educate parents on the early signs of autism. Early intervention can mean a better outcome for the child.
When Lisa Del Prete, a mother of six, heard the word autism she says she was in denial.
She noticed her fifth child just wasn’t acting like the others, but she told herself to just “wait and see.”
Now she wishes she had taken action much earlier.
“I was scared. I didn’t want to tell anyone. I didn’t know what it meant. I didn’t even know who to call,” said Lisa Del Prete.
If you find yourself in this situation, please visit our Early Intervention page to learn about what signs to look for and what steps to take.
April is just around the corner.
April is Autism Awareness month, with the 2nd of April being Worldwide Autism Awareness Day.
In the month of April alone more than 3,900 people will be diagnosed with Autism.
New research shows that we are no longer at 1 in 88. The national average is 1 in 50. One out of every 50 kids born this year will be diagnosed with Autism.
- More than AIDS, cancer and diabetes combined.
- Research shows that Early Intervention offers these children the best outcome.
Here, at Lighthouse Autism Center, we are making it our mission this month to spread the word about Autism and provide families that resources they have long been without.
Lighthouse is sponsoring a number of Public Service Announcements that will run on Sunny 101.5 and Oldies 94.3.
For the month of April we have partnered with WNDU to raise awareness through television and the WNDU.com homepage.
Lighthouse is also helping the Climb Project Foundation with their fundraiser. Climb Project Foundation was created by parents of a child with Autism. Their mission is to raise money to help families in our area get the help they need.
If you would like to help Lighthouse and the Climb Project spread hope and help as many families living with Autism in our area as possible, give us a call to see how you can help.
