As our Rochester, MN clinic moves into its new home at 1470 Industrial Blvd this fall, children and families in the Mankato, MN areas will also be able to access high-quality autism treatment services from Caravel Autism Health.
Caravel Autism Health clinics are designed to provide comprehensive support for families. Each clinic offers diagnostic evaluations by specially trained psychologists and creates customized Applied Behavior Analysis (“ABA”) therapy programs to help children with autism develop skills, create connections and gain confidence.
The Minnesota centers offer several therapy options for children with autism. These options include home-based ABA therapy, center-based ABA therapy, and a hybrid model combining the two. In-home therapy programs give autism health specialists the opportunity to provide individualized therapy and socialization skills training in the home: the child’s natural environment. For center-based therapy services, the parent brings the child to a Caravel Autism Health center where he or she receives the same type of individualized ABA therapy and socialization skills training, but in a structured center program with other children present. The third model combines both in-home treatment and center-based services to meet the individual needs of the child and family. Regardless of where therapy takes place, all families receive the same level of evidence-based treatment, parent training, and comprehensive support that gives their children the greatest chance for leading independent and happy lives.
Jackie Vick, Vice President of Minnesota Clinical Operations, invites parents, pediatricians, educators and others devoted to improving the lives of children living with autism to join her team to learn more about Caravel Autism Health and ABA therapy.
