Oct 13, 2022, WDHN TV Dothan, AL: New autism therapy clinic opens to relieve ongoing wait times https://www.wdhn.com/news/local-news/new-autism-therapy-clinic-opens-to-relieve-ongoing-wait-times/
Kelli Beck has been a board-certified behavior analyst for two years and sooner than expected she opened her own business — Beck Behavior Therapy on the west side of Dothan to provide quick therapy for children diagnosed with autism.
“Really saw the need in the city of Dothan to open up a clinic,” Beck said. “The waitlist in the area tends to be a year to a year and a half, and when kids are diagnosed parents need the answers, and help, and the kids need access to therapy.”
Some parents she has dealt with since opening say that just to get therapy it has taken up to three years.
The therapy she specializes in is Applied Behavior Analysis which focuses on enhancing academics and communication behaviors for the quality of life of an individual….
She also provides parent training with those who have children with autism, so they can work with them at home.
Beck said she still has openings for children 2-18 years of age which lets her know there are still some children who may need therapy….
She hopes she’ll be able to expand and offer speech and physical therapy in the near future….
