My daughter is 6 years old and has non-verbal autism. We were introduced to this AMAZING organization by a friend of mine when we were on the hunt for summer care for my daughter which is no easy task. After attending the summer camp for two years I can tell you this place is a blessing! My daughter absolutely loves going to summer camp here! Each summer week has a theme and they keep the children learning and having fun all day long. My daughter gets to be involved in all the activities and the staff could not be more caring or knowledgeable. Over the last few weeks my daughter has also been able to participate in social group therapy and I could not be happier with her progress thus far. We cannot wait for them to begin enrolling for summer camp again and I am hoping we can get my son in as well!
Hearts of gold!
My son has made so much progress since starting the day therapy program with them in August. Each and everyone of the therapist have hearts of gold!
Autism ETC has been life changing for our family and our son over the last year! They are so personal and value your input as a parent when making the perfect care plan for your child. My sons functional communication and social skills have dramatically improved at their center. They also use a variety of methods for teaching which has helped my son with learning so much where it used to be hard for him to retain before. I would recommend Autism ETC for anyone looking for ABA services!
I learn so much
The progress that my son has made while attending AETC summer camps and ABA therapy here has been unbelievable. The staff and therapists are all incredibly knowledgeable and compassionate. I try not to ever miss a parent training workshop offered by AETC because I learn so much from the parent chosen topics. I couldn’t imagine our lives without AETC.
So much progress
Autism Etc has been an absolute God-send to our family. Our boys have been receiving services going on 10 years from Autism Etc. We have two teenage boys with Autism. The support has been amazing! We are so thankful for Autism Etc. We have been helped with food therapy, collaboration with school, potty training, behavior modification and so much more. Our family has benefited from scholarships for summer camp. Our boys no longer tantrum and transition really well all things considered. Social skills groups have helped tremendously. Our boys have made so much progress and continue to do so and we are eternally grateful. We thank God for Autism Etc.
We love it at AETC
When my son with ASD started therapy here he only had 3 words. Now, he uses upwards of 20 and his social skills have increased tremendously. We love it at AETC.
My son absolutely loves it here
My son’s progress since being services continues to amaze me! He can use complete sentences! The staff is amazing and is always incredibly friendly and helpful. My son absolutely loves it here and that means so much to me.
He can actually communicate now!
They helped my non-verbal son say “Papa” and “Mama”! He can go out with me without being so overwhelmed he cries, he can actually communicate now!
Always finding ways to involve and help children grow!
I love every single last one of the wonderful people who work here. They make my life & my son’s life so much easier. They are understanding and always finding ways to involve and help children grow!
