Autism Care Partners was launched to achieve a single goal: Unifying like-minded behavioral health organizations to collectively expand and improve the assessment, treatment, and therapy available to individuals with developmental delays.

As clinical research and resources aligned to extend care beyond toddler years, ACP launched a private insurance-reimbursed program designed to improve coordination, consistency, and availability of care for all individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

In 2018, we launched our first center-based program that further expanded our capabilities by allowing increased socialization opportunities and customization of treatment plans. Our center-based programs ensure that we meet our clients’ unique needs in the most appropriate treatment setting possible.

Through our comprehensive operating approach, we seek to be the best partner to families and individuals impacted by ASD. The ACP family has grown into an autism services industry leader by uniting with partner organizations and collaborating with local partners to improve care coordination while ensuring that each client, and their family, receives the support necessary to reach their goals.

We collaborate with providers and organizations in the community to ensure all clients receive the best services for them. By coordinating autism-related services, we connect key stakeholders and provide a unique, multidisciplinary spectrum of care.


Autism Care Partners provides services in various environments designed to help each individual reach their behavioral goals. Please note, delivery setting options vary by program.

Home-Based Therapy

The home, often considered the most familiar and comfortable environment, allows clients, families, and providers to focus on individual behavioral milestones in a familiar learning environment.

Center-Based Programs

ACP operates multiple center-based programs which offer a unique, classroom-oriented approach to treatment. In addition to individual skill development, the centers enable our therapists to work on socialization goals as well.

Center-Based Programs

Clients may experience behavioral challenges in unique settings, such as libraries, markets, or restaurants. Our providers can work with your family to develop care plans specifically tailored to address concerns related to community locations.
