Fox 2, St. Louis: 7th ABA provider opening in Missouri

May 30, 2024, Fox 2 Now, St. Louis, MO: Seventh autism clinic in Missouri to open in Weldon Spring

WELDON SPRING, Mo. – Missouri is bringing a new center-based autism therapy clinic to Weldon Spring Thursday, commemorating the seventh to open in the state with a ribbon cutting.

Caravel Autism Health centers its focus around evaluations, diagnoses, and therapy programs for childhood autism. Their staff specializes in applied behavior analysis therapy, which provides support in a range of daily activities through positive reinforcement.

According to Caravel’s website, the therapy method is recognized for its effectiveness by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the CDC.

“ABA therapy changes lives, but families in many communities have difficulty accessing this life-changing care because of a provider shortage,” Caravel CEO Mike Miller said in a release. “High-quality therapy early in life ensures that children achieve their full potential, so we’re opening new clinics to bring more resources and greater hope for families.”

The space inside the clinic was specifically created as a sensory-friendly environment for kids to gain confidence, hone in on their skills, and learn more about the world.

Several services are provided by Caravel, which include family support, counseling, evaluations, and therapy.

This is the company’s first clinic in Missouri, and there are plans to expand with more locations in the state this year. . . .
