June 6, 2023, EIN Newsdesk: Lighthouse Autism Center Announces Expansion of ABA Services in Indiana https://www.einnews.com/amp/pr_news/636667112/lighthouse-autism-center-announces-expansion-of-aba-services-in-indiana
Lighthouse Autism Center, a leading provider of center-based, Applied Behavior Analysis ("ABA") therapy, today announced a new center location in Warsaw, Indiana. Lighthouse Autism Center is currently the largest ABA provider in Indiana with a network of locations across Indiana, Michigan, Illinois and Iowa. The Winona Lake Autism Center will be Lighthouse’s second center to open in the Warsaw, Indiana area. The Winona Lake center is slated to open in the summer of 2023 and will provide autism services to 25 families and create over 35 new jobs in the area.
Autism spectrum disorder is one of the fastest-growing developmental disorders, with approximately 1 in 36 children in the U.S. being diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). As the need for services grow, Lighthouse Autism Center continues to pursue its mission of bringing the highest quality autism therapy to communities that need them.
Nicole Smoker, Regional Clinical Director of Lighthouse’s Warsaw location noted, “As a lifelong resident of Kosciusko County, I could not be more excited to expand services here!
Over 10 years ago, there were very limited resources in our area for children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. Now, we have other resources in our area, such as Lighthouse, Joe’s kids, LAAN, and Bowen Autism Support groups. We are also seeing local practitioners that are diagnosing much earlier, which helps families get early intervention for services. With adding a second location, we will be able to evaluate and provide ABA services to more families in the Kosciusko area!”…
