The Children’s Center for Autism (CCA) is an behavioral therapy program providing both individual and group therapy for children ages 18 months to 12 years old depending on need who have been diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
The mission of the CCA is to help young children with ASD in South Central Middle Tennessee realize their full potential through individualized and collaborative treatment. CCA believes that parental knowledge and involvement are essential to a child’s success. Therefore, involving the family is a key component of this program.
The Children’s Center for Autism provides evidence-based, intensive behavior therapy using an Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) approach. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Surgeon General, and the National Council on Education, early, intensive behavioral therapy is the most researched and proven method of treating children with autism. Research states that the lifetime cost to support a child with autism can be reduced by 2/3 with early diagnosis and intervention.
