How does your organization serve our community?

The ND Autism Center provides services for individuals with autism or other developmental disabilities. We provide a childcare-type program called the Day Program, behavior consultation and therapy through our Behavior Services Program, and in home support (such as an extra set of hands for parents) in our In Home Supports Program. Our mission is to help individuals affected by autism and developmental disabilities reach their full potential through excellence in care, therapy, instruction and support.
