Winston-Salem, NC: Therapy center opens; one in 39 kids have ASD in NC

June 28, 2021, EIN News: The Carolina Center for ABA and Autism Treatment Opening First Triad Location in Winston-Salem

WINSTON-SALEM, NC--The Carolina Center for ABA and Autism Treatment (“CCABA”) announced today that they will be offering Applied Behavioral Analysis (“ABA”) treatment for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (“ASD”) in Winston-Salem, NC. The launch of this center marks CCABA’s first clinical presence in Winston-Salem, bringing much-needed ABA services to families in the Triad. Clinic-based services are expected to begin at the new 8,000 square foot center in July 2021, but the company has already begun serving clients through home-based services. CCABA is currently accepting new client enrollment applications from prospective clients, as well as referrals from healthcare providers for the Winston-Salem location, which is located at 1492 Rymco Dr. Winton-Salem, NC 27103. A recent CDC study on the prevalence of ASD found 1-in-39 8-year-old children in North Carolina have a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (“ASD”). Treatment based on ABA is considered the ‘gold standard’ for improving the symptoms of ASD and is endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Society for Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics and the American Psychological Association…. CCABA CEO, Keith Laabs, recently shared his excitement over CCABA’s expansion to the Triad market. “We are thrilled to be opening the Winston-Salem center, which will bring convenient access to high-quality ABA services to so many families in the Winston-Salem market, a portion of our state that has historically been underserved. … A recent report published by the Behavioral Health Center of Excellence noted that North Carolina is one of the most underserved populous states in the U.S., with nearly 100 children with ASD per certified ABA provider. Carolina Center for ABA and Autism Treatment Founder, Denise DeCandia shared that building the field of clinicians is a priority for the team at CCABA. “We recognize that the greatest barrier to care is the lack of trained professionals available to meet the need for ABA services. … To meet the needs of the Winston-Salem community, CCABA is currently hiring new team members to serve families in need of services. …
