For many families, religion is an important part of daily life. At Marcus Autism Center, we recognize the importance of giving families options and resources for spiritual institutions in their community. This section is for families looking for religious services and facilities for children with special needs.
Early Intervention Schools
Early intervention is an important step to maximize learning and minimize behavioral issues later in life. This section offers resources for alternative schools that teach both academics and self-help skills to children and young adults with autism and related disorders.
Speech and Physical Therapy
Many children with autism and related disorders have other communication and physical complications. To give these children the most independent life possible, this section offers resources for speech and physical therapy, as well as home-based services.
*Many providers will want a referring pediatrician for services.
