Providing comprehensive autism services for a person’s behavioral, social, emotional & physical needs

Innovative Autism Services provides comprehensive services for people with autism for every stage of their lives. Services start from early childhood interventions through adult assistance. We offer a team oriented approach across all autism services as the key to achieving their independence with as little supports as possible.

By delivering individualized interventions and programming focused on specific needs we are able to assist in achieving goals that can be generalized throughout a person’s life.

“If they can’t learn the way we teach,

we teach the way they learn”

― O. Ivar Lovaas

Finding Innovative Ways to Engage, Teach

& Create More Learning Opportunities

Learning is fundamental, but not always easy.

We help find the right strategies to maximize learning & success through a person centered approach.


More Than Social Skills

Developing foundation skills and beyond

Our module-based program targets skills across six different areas of development, such as joint attention, greetings, social play, self-awareness, conversations, perspective taking, and critical thinking. Although the core emphasis of our social groups is to teach our learners to interact socially with their peers, the modules allow us to target these skills on an individual level, while still working within a group environment.

Our groups will be navigating through the program with different activities that incorporate skills needed to master each module.  As the learners progress through the modules, the skills will become increasingly advanced.  The goal is for each learner to successfully complete all modules and maintain acquired social skills throughout the duration of the group.

How are our classes different?

  • Year-round classes with placement by skill level

  • Individualized goals for each child

  • Opportunities for generalization through community outings & whole group events

  • Parent meetings included to give parents an opportunity to learn more about the program, ask questions & learn how to better carry over skills outside the group

More Opportunities

Learning doesn’t need to stop at the school bell. Offering ABA-based after-school programming for tweens & teens.

Our Community

We go far beyond a typical after-school program. We actively seek out community engagement, volunteer and vocational opportunities.

Your Path to Success

Offering teens a uniquely unified approach to sustainable independence.

With the insight of staff and input of family, each student will take an active role in creating a set of goals driven by their own strengths, needs and interests. Through the careful coordination of structured group learning, community exploration and mentoring, each student will be provided with the support and opportunity to achieve those goals and create the foundation for independent adulthood.
