CHAMPIONING INDIVIDUALS WITH ASD
Opened in March 2021, the Family Initiative Autism Support Center is Southwest Florida’s first facility dedicated to supporting individuals and families impacted by Autism Spectrum Disorder.
The state-of-the-art facility features three cutting-edge clinical rooms for direct, evidence-based assessment; therapeutic intervention rooms; group activity spaces; kitchen; office; and observation room for caregiver and staff training. Advanced technology installed in the building allows for remote training and workshop hosting as well as enhanced security and safety.
The Autism Support Center serves as a base to ensure the highest clinical standards with a humanistic approach through Family Initiative Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and Occupational Therapy (OT) services.
The Autism Support Center hosts community conversations, educational forums, and multiple support programs, highlighting the needs of individuals on the autism spectrum and an important addition in creating a more inclusive community.
