In 1977, we started the Carmen B. Pingree center to assist children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Since then, we’ve expanded our services to individuals up to 21 years old. This Center is an extension of the Pingree Center. Providing evidence-based treatment to adults with autism in an effort to help them continue their growth and knowledge throughout life.
Over the years, we have seen a gap in the services and resources offered to adults with autism who are in need of significant care and needs. When an individual with autism reaches 22 years old, they lose the support of educational services from the state. Once they lose this support, the individuals and parents have the challenge to figure out the next steps. The Adult Autism Center can pave the next path for these individuals, by offering specialized programs and care from professional ABA therapists and employees.
Our staff is highly qualified and assists the individual even step of the way. We aim for these adults to grow and expand in the following areas through ABA programming and hands-on learning:
Social & Leisure skills
Medical & Dental
