Arizona: 11th ABA center opens in the state; plans to expand nationwide

April 9, 2024, KTAR, 92.3 FM, Phoenix: New therapy center through Centria Autism opens in Glendale 

A new Life Skills Autism Academy (LSAA) center through Centria Autism opened in Glendale last week, officials announced Monday.

The 12,900 square-foot Glendale LSAA center is located at 5734 Glendale Ave. and can allow clinicians to work with up to 68 clients at a time.

Centria, a leading provider of applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy, emphasizes early intervention with LSAA centers, which provide high-intensive, specialized therapy to children with autism.

Centria already operates in 10 other locations throughout Arizona, including Tempe, Mesa, Phoenix and Tucson. The new Glendale location is actively accepting new clients, and the company plans to open more. . . .

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in every 36 kids is diagnosed with autism. Centria acknowledges the national need for accessible behavioral therapy, with the company working toward expanding across the country.

Additional center openings are planned in Maryland, North Carolina, Georgia and Virginia, joining the lineup of existing locations open in Michigan, Indiana, Arizona and Texas.

“Parents shouldn’t have to go far for access to comprehensive ABA therapy for their children,” Yeager said in the release. “That’s why we are continuing to expand our footprint throughout Arizona, a state with historically limited autism therapy resources.”
