The Autism Clinic at Hope is committed to giving children with autism spectrum disorder professional care and attention so that they can soar. We know that the best caregivers are families and we offer the training, advice and support that parents and other family members need.
We are proud to continue that tradition with The Asperger-Autism Clinic.
About Our Team
The Autism Clinic at Hope provides a unique range of services by our highly qualified and credentialed staff:
Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA®)
Your child is unique, and our certified Behavior Analysts will develop individual treatment plans that best meet their needs. Using your child’s strengths, our BCBA’s develop these plans to help them reach their social, communication, academic, and behavioral goals.
Registered Behavior Technicians (RBT®)
For any plan to be successful, it needs a team of people working together to achieve meaningful results. Our Registered Behavior Technicians work with your child in one-on-one and group settings to help them be successful at home, in the classroom and in their community.
Our state Licensed Therapists will work with your child to help them manage activities of daily living that most people take for granted. Whether it’s teaching them the fine motor skills it takes to tie their shoes or zip up a jacket, to helping them verbally communicate their wants and needs, they help complete your child’s unique treatment plan.
For more than a half century, Hope has pursued a single mission: to help children with disabilities achieve their full potential. For decades, we have carefully cultivated a culture of hope for children, no matter how great the challenges they may face.
We are proud to continue that tradition with The Autism Clinic at Hope.
Stories of Hope
So many reasons to choose our clinic!
Roslyn was diagnosed with autism at Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital in St. Louis, MO. I was heart broken because her older brother who is twelve years older also has autism. It took me years of courage to even think about having another little one and hearing that she too had autism, I was shattered. My husband insisted we still have a family fun day at the St. Louis Zoo. So, we carried on with our day, but all I could think about was what is the next step.
After being diagnosed with autism at Cardinal-Glennon-Knights of Columbus, we were given a packet of information which listed Hope as a resource. At that time, we were told it was unlikely we would able to get the recommended number of ABA hours. We were very fortunate to discover there was a new clinic in Maryville, IL, that was able to accommodate our needs. We started to see progress very quickly.
We were at a kid’s fair at the Prairie Capital Convention center and spoke with the director about our son’s issues and she encouraged us to pursue getting a diagnosis and meeting with them. It was encouraging for us to see their enthusiasm and willingness to help us find resources. Clark had very limited vocabulary of simply “I want” and pointing. He was no longer saying simple sentences or even mommy or daddy.
