Cleveland Clinic Children’s Center for Autism (CCCCA) is a leading program dedicated to autism treatment, education and research. The center’s main site is on the campus of Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital for Rehabilitation with additional satellite sites.
CCCCA provides multidisciplinary evaluations for children suspected to have autism spectrum disorder (ASD) from the age when their parents first become concerned through early adolescence.
Clinical Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Services
Individualized ABA treatment (behavior therapy) is provided to children with ASD with a strong emphasis on Parent Training. Focused ABA Treatment Plans target specific deficits or problem behaviors and work to replace those behaviors with functional skills with an emphasis on communication skills. Services will be provided using a tiered delivery model. A Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) will design and supervise treatment goals and oversee Registered Behavior Technicians (RBT) in working directly with the client.
Outpatient Speech/Language Therapy
All speech/language pathologists are trained in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and licensed by the Ohio Board of Speech-Language Pathology, and are certified members of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).
The Center for Autism’s outpatient speech department specializes in providing children with ASD speech / language evaluations, individual therapy, small group therapy.
LERNER SCHOOL FOR AUTISM
Our chartered non-public school, certified by the Ohio Department of Education, serves students from the age of first diagnosis to age 22 years. Certified special educators, behavior analysts, speech/language pathologists and classroom behavior therapists have intensive training and experience in ABA. Parent training, observations and home visits are integral components of both of our programs:
Early childhood program: An intensive full-day, year-round, center-based behavioral service for children 1 to 5 years of age. Tailored instruction focuses on development of skills across the domains of language and communication, socialization, play, adaptive behavior and toilet training.
School-age program: An intensive full-day, year-round, center-based behavioral program tailored to each student. Instruction focuses on communication, socialization, academics, adaptive behavior, vocational preparation and transitional services. Applying skills in community settings is emphasized.
Cleveland Clinic Children’s Autism Development Solutions (CCCADS) offers full-service consultative services to medical and educational organizations, both nationally and internationally, to assist in establishing, or modifying existing intensive autism treatment programs within their own communities. Since 2007, CCCADS has helped develop nearly 20 programs across the United States.
The CCCCA is conducting federally-funded clinical research focusing on improving treatment for children with autism and their families. Research studies offer families another option for receiving treatment and contributing to our knowledge in the state of the science care for those with ASD.
