Rushville, IN: Autism therapy center expands; 'We saw a huge need'

Aug 6, 2022, Greenfield (IN) Daily Reporter: ACE on the move: Autism center expands services to Rushville https://www.greenfieldreporter.com/2022/08/06/ace-on-the-move-autism-center-expands-services-to-rushville/
The ACE Autism Center for Enrichment in Greenfield recently expanded its services to Rushville, a move that reflects the center’s goal to expand services throughout Indiana.

Lainie Myers, an ACE Operational Director who works with clients in Greenfield and Rushville, said the center’s staff is dedicated to serving families all over the state.

ACE was founded in 2017 by its CEO, Michelle Sears, a board certified behavior analyst with a passion for serving clients with varying degrees of autism.

The center’s therapists use Applied Behavior Analysis — or ABA, a form of behavioral therapy for autistic individuals — to work one-on-one with young people ages 2 to 26….

“We saw a huge need there because there was no ABA facility within 30 minutes of Rushville,” she said….

“I’m excited about it,” said Myers, who graduated from Eastern Hancock High School in 2018 and is now in graduate school to become a board certified behavioral analyst. She hopes to help expand ACE’s services in southern Indiana someday.

“Our goal is to spread the word and to be able to serve many more patients. It’s much overdue,” she said.
