Autism is a growing epidemic, not only nationally, but here in the Louisville metro area. Right now, there are thousands of children in our community who have been diagnosed with some degree of this debilitating condition. But experts agree that with the right interventions, autism is treatable.
That's why Home of the Innocents has expanded our services to these children and their families. Our goal is to not only address behaviors and skill deficits, but to also help facilitate healthy, cohesive, thriving families who have learned to accept, love, and understand children with Autism.
Our staff has been extensively trained and uses behavioral intervention, family support/counseling, parent education, sibling support groups, communication facilitation, and a number of other behavioral, psychodynamic and family systems techniques to work with these families.
