Autism Support Center
OPENING THIS FALL
Family Initiative’s Southwest Florida Autism Support Center is opening this fall! The Center will be a hub of activity championing ASD families across Southwest Florida.
Our vision was to develop a space specifically designed to support individuals on the autism spectrum. With every step of this project, the families of this community have been front and center.
From floor plans to paint colors, Family Initiative has worked in partnership with our families to ensure our new space would look and feel like home.
CHANGE AGENTS FOR AUTISM FAMILIES
The Autism Support Center will also be a place to highlight the needs of individuals on the autism spectrum and the opportunity we all have to build a more inclusive community. The Autism Support Center will host community conversations, educational forums, and multiple support programs.
Family Initiative will continue to ensure the highest clinical standards with a humanistic approach through our Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and Occupational Therapy (OT) services that will also be offered at the Center.
With the opening of the Southwest Florida Autism Support Center, Family Initiative welcomes the community to engage and discover ways they can be change agents for autism families in our region and beyond.
