To meet the growing need for autism services across the country, Hopebridge Autism Therapy Centers is expanding its innovative, interdisciplinary care into Arizona. Hopebridge will bring approximately 12 locations to the state over the next 12 to 18 months. The first sites are expected to launch in north Phoenix and Glendale in September 2019 followed shortly after with Tucson East in October. The expansion into Arizona will ensure hundreds of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental delays will have the chance to receive the life-changing care they need, beginning with diagnostic assessments and applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy.
Hopebridge’s individualized, center-based care offers a wide range of benefits to Arizona’s families living with autism. The benefits include diagnostic and ABA evaluations; state-of-the-art facilities designed specifically to enhance pediatric therapy for a spectrum of functioning levels; and socialization with peers to target specific social and pragmatic goals. Additional services include an interdisciplinary collaboration between ABA, occupational, and speech therapists; a full-service insurance support team to help families navigate coverage options; and parent training and education to maximize the effects of therapy outside center walls.
Each Hopebridge center houses a wide range of settings and equipment, enabling therapists to develop customized programs that include natural environment training, personal hygiene, peer interaction, and school preparation. Semi-private therapy rooms, mock classrooms, gross motor “gyms,” and fully functioning kitchens and bathrooms are found in each of the facilities.
Hopebridge Arizona centers will ultimately create more than 650 new jobs throughout the state to ensure every child receives one-on-one, personalized therapy. The coordinated, complementary teams will consist of Board Certified Behavioral Analysts (BCBA), registered behavior technicians (RBT), clinical psychologists, occupational therapists, speech language pathologists, and other industry professionals.
Hopebridge Autism Therapy Centers offers a wide range of outpatient services designed to meet the needs of children requiring behavioral diagnosis and applied behavioral analysis (ABA), occupational, feeding, and speech treatments in both home and school settings. Hopebridge has 35+ autism therapy centers in Indiana, Kentucky, Georgia, and Ohio. Pediatricians and parents across the Midwest trust Hopebridge for its expertise in treating neurological, genetic, sensory processing, and feeding disorders; language delays; and behavioral concerns. Children with special needs require extraordinary, individualized care and Hopebridge’s staff helps families understand their children’s difficulties while working to help them realize their potential.
