Where we work

Charting impact

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

We would like to provide families with children with autism, special needs, and disabilities services under "one roof" to maximize resources for these families.

We are an affiliate of Spectrum Pediatric Therapies LLC which provides OT ST and ABA services in the same building. By allowing families a "one stop shop" we can save them precious time, travel and financial resources.

We have a building of approximately 4500 square feet. We have at our disposal an occupational therapist, speech therapist, aba therapist and LCSW in the same space. We have also partnered with Audibel who will allow us the use of an audiometer for hearing screens for these children.

We have a consultant , Dr. Gary Walby with CSI in Jacksonville, Florida who is assisting us in outcome measurement at this time.

We have served 50 children and families at no charge allowing them to start ot or speech services. We have also begun ABA services, social skills programming and have written three grants--one for a sensory path in our hallway, one for a lending library, and another for a playground.
