Agency Description:
LittleStar ABA Therapy was awarded The 2017 Provider of the Year Award by Autism Speaks as well as the Excellence in Direct Care Award by Autism Society of Indiana in 2011. LittleStar is a not-for-profit, founded in 2002 by the parents of a child with autism, making it the original ABA center in the state. We provide in center, in home and in community support for children, teens and young adults affected by autism. Our clinical staff is second to none and we recruit the best talent from across the country to ensure that our learners are getting the best ABA (applied behavior analysis) therapy possible. We promise parents a clean, bright and well maintained facility and progress you will see. Not all ABA centers are the same, and as a not-for-profit, we put our learners and their families above profit while offering the highest level of clinical quality. Come see for yourself, you’ll feel it the moment you walk through our doors. You’ll meet our executive director and family services director, each of whom have a child with autism, so they know what you are going through. LittleStar prides itself on giving its families white glove service because we know that raising a child with autism is hard, and we want to be the easy part of your day. Let us help you down this path. You are not alone.
