FRAMINGHAM – Autism Care Partners continues to expand access to autism services for Massachusetts families with the opening of a new center in Framingham on Route 30.

In addition to offering exceptional interdisciplinary care, families will be able access early diagnostic evaluations for autism onsite at the
Framingham center.

“We work collaboratively to educate families on the principles of applied behavior analysis (ABA) and empower them to feel confident managing their child’s problem behavior while enhancing communication skills. Our goal is to create hyper individualized positive behavior support plans that families feel comfortable and confident implementing. “said Rachel Grenier Managing BCBA, Framingham.

As one of the largest autism and related service providers in the Northeast, ACP is focused on ensuring “no wrong door” to individuals on the spectrum and their families by providing and coordinating ABA, diagnostic and related services across diverse care settings. ACP is continuing Massachusetts expansion in 2023, while also deepening its growing bench of diagnosticians, social workers, speech therapists, and
occupational therapists.

Additionally, ACP continues to invest in its best-in-class clinical model, enhanced through The Visual Immersion SystemTM (VISTM), an evidence-based and pioneering Boston Children’s-developed language acquisition intervention.

“With the increasing prevalence of ASD diagnosis, we are grateful to be part of the solution for Massachusetts families by increasing access to evidence-based, interdisciplinary care,” said Andrea Lavigne, Ph.D., BCBA, LBA, Chief of Regional Service Delivery.

On April 26,  Spectrum of Sound performed the National Anthem, followed by a ribbon cutting, and an open house, which included the City of Framingham Mayor Charlie Sisitsky, Framingham Police Chief Lester Baker, and members of the Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism.

Founded in 1992, Autism Care Partners has become a recognized leader in the delivery of comprehensive behavioral therapy to individuals on the autism spectrum. ACP provides diagnostic evaluations, early intervention services, ABA, speech therapy, occupational therapy, social work, and the Visual Immersion SystemTM to individuals on the autism spectrum, and their families, through its multi-state network of center, telehealth, and home and school-based practices.
