Autism Services

 

Autism is a complex developmental disability that spans a spectrum of symptoms. Those affected exhibit a wide range of disabilities and severity, which affect communication, social skills and behavior. In response to the scarcity of residential programs that are tailored to the specific needs of autistic individuals, CSC is committed to providing Autism services to children and adults in a residential setting in the comminity. During the past 18 years, our services to children and adults with autism have substantially affected our role as professionals and have changed our approach in the service delivery system. Today, CSC takes an innovative approach to serving children with autism; and adults with autism; we have learned a lot about the lives and behaviors of both children and adults  with autism. We work with families and support their aspirations of choice and self-determination for their children as they grow up. We value their experiences and perspectives and the importance of preserving them. We have set up our Autism Center through which we receive referrals for autism services for residential habilitation, therapeutic integration, respite care, family training, and supported employment.
