Autism Support Groups

At Lighthouse Autism Center, we understand firsthand the struggles that parents and caregivers face when raising a child with autism. It truly takes a village to care for a child with autism, but we understand that families also need support. We believe it’s important that a support network is in place for not only the individual with autism, but also for those who are helping care for them. Below is a list of local autism support groups. For more information, contact Lighthouse Autism Center at 574-387-4313..

*Lighthouse is not affiliated and does not officially support any of these groups.

Parent Support Groups

Indiana University has compiled a list of Autism Society of America chapters and additional support groups across Indiana for parents of children across the autism spectrum. This information is provided to help those families trying to locate a group for support. The support groups listed may or may not provide you and your family with the specific kind of support you are seeking. Please call the contact person directly to find out about the specific focus of the support group, and to find out about meeting places and schedules. Certain groups have mailing lists, email listservs, or blogs you can ask about when you call.

Lighthouse Autism Center Now Enrolling in Warsaw, Indiana!

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.

Give us a call today at 574-387-4313 to see how Lighthouse Autism Center can help your child with Autism reach his or her fullest potential.

Together we can make a difference for your child.
