June 8, 2023, KTAR, Phoenix: Autism evaluation, therapy clinic opens first East Valley location https://ktar.com/story/5505135/autism-evaluation-therapy-clinic-opens-first-east-valley-location/
A clinic offering autism diagnostic services and applied behavioral analysis therapy is expanding its presence in the Valley with the opening of a new clinic in Gilbert.
Axis for Autism is located near Baseline and Lindsay roads….
“One of the things that we’ve really noticed in terms of being a diagnostic provider is that the need for ongoing therapies after diagnosis — there’s incredible barriers to families trying to get into various different therapies…,” Jessica Reese, vice president of clinical services, told KTAR News 92.3 FM on Wednesday.
“So to try to help fill that hole, we decided that we were going to open some associated clinics.”…
Axis for Autism also has locations in Phoenix, Glendale and Tucson, as well as a virtual clinic that can serve families in areas where there is limited or no access to such services, Reese said.
The center also plans to open a new location later this year to serve residents in the West Valley.
“Our goal with these new clinics is to fill gaps in care now and in the future as the East and West Valleys continue to grow,” Christine Ehrich, founder and CEO of Axis for Autism, said in a press release.
