When Wyatt enrolled he had some words, but he did not know how to use them to communicate. Since beginning with the Lighthouse Fusion model, Wyatt has flourished!
Ethan loves to play with blocks, swing, and jump on the trampoline. Before starting with Lighthouse Fusion, Ethan was non-verbal. Since starting with Lighthouse Fusion, Ethan has made so much progress towards vocal communication. Watch a Co-Treat Session with Ethan.
Kairo loves Pete the Cat, playing with shaving cream, and being silly. Before starting with Lighthouse Fusion, Kairo was not producing vocal speech sounds resulting in challenges in communication. Now, he is communicating with over 15 words. Watch a Co-Treat Session with Kairo.

The staff are amazing! Every person is always so friendly and polite. Every morning they greet Christian with enthusiasm and he looks forward to going to Lighthouse. Christian’s BCBA is always prompt in her communications with any news, questions, or concerns and the entire team is so attentive. Christian has food allergies and the therapists contacted us to remove an item we had accidentally sent in his lunch. It gave us so much confidence in that attention to detail for Christian!
When Wyatt first began at Lighthouse, he had very few words; he mainly communicated by holding our hand and taking us to what he wanted. There was very little eye contact, very little response to his name, and no following of directions. Fast forward and Wyatt responds to his name, he is vocally communicating, he is following directions. The progress we have seen has been life changing for Wyatt and our family.
I called Lighthouse and said ‘my child is showing signs of autism, I don’t know what to do.’ You helped me get him diagnosed, start ABA and now my son is graduating. He has grown into a completely different child. He wasn’t able to feed himself, dress himself, walk, and he was nonverbal. Looking at him now, you wouldn’t have a clue he couldn’t do all of those things. That’s thanks to all of you.
You have opened up a whole new world of opportunity to Liam and our family. You have taken a little boy who could easily be overlooked, or left behind, and you have accepted and loved him for who he is. You see him, truly see him. You have changed the entire path of my son’s life and for that I am forever grateful.
I love working for LAC! I don’t dread waking up in the morning to go to work. I come in excited for the day and excited to see the kiddos that have stolen my heart. This job has truly changed my life in such a short time!
I have so many amazing memories at Lighthouse. My favorite though is when a mom dropped her child off on the first day. I told her that her son would have a wonderful day and not to stress because he is with people who will absolutely love him. She nervously smiled and said, “I know you guys will… I feel like we finally found our light at the end of the tunnel.” What an honor, to be someone’s light.
The company has supported my family and I through amazing times of growth and difficult challenges. The past 2 years has spoken VOLUMES to the value LAC places on their families and employees. I feel honored to have experienced so many victories, met so many influential people I now consider my friends, and to be part of a company who encourages me to keep growing.
My experience at Lighthouse has been like no other job I have ever had. The teamwork is unmatched. When I started, my first day was full of encouraging words and tons of help. Even to this day I am still encouraged and never have to look far for help.
