Full Partnership Approach

Great care starts with great therapy, but as full partners, our support goes even further. We work alongside families to navigate the often overwhelming insurance landscape and assist in coordinating care across providers.

Evidence-Based Practices

Clinically proven evidence-based therapy practices that focus on outcomes to ensure our clients receive the most effective care possible.

Cross-Organization Coordination

We provide therapy for individuals with developmental delays from birth through adulthood. Clinical partnerships that span a wide breadth of age groups and diagnoses enable us to better understand and treat each individual’s unique needs.

Our Mission

To empower children, and their families, to achieve individualized behavioral goals through assessment, treatment and education.

Our Vision

To develop a unified team of practices that not only provides high quality therapy services, but also serves a key role in coordinating care for individuals with developmental delays and their families.

Our multidisciplinary team provides comprehensive care, by incorporating Applied Behavior Analysis, speech and occupational therapy, and diagnostic evaluations to empower children and their families throughout all stages of development and growth.

Our Fundamentals


We use behavior analysis and benchmarking to measure outcomes and focus on graduating skill development.

Experts in Care

ACP clinicians are not only experts in treating children with ASD, they have a wide range of experience working with and treating individuals with a variety of development delays and behavioral challenges.


Together we are Full Partners. From clinical care to family support, the ACP network seeks to provide the best coordinated and most effective supports available.


Our providers and staff go above and beyond to ensure that our patients receive the care they need. We are committed to a supportive and collaborative treatment approach that is rooted in empathy and being kind, fair, and compassionate.


We understand that a behavioral diagnosis is often paired with emotional stress or anxiety. ACP’s team is here to help - we focus on “now” to get to the future and help each individual achieve their potential. We are committed to remaining optimistic as we work towards a better and brighter future together.

Our History

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 ASD regardless of age.

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 network has grown into an autism services industry leader through uniting partner organizations to improve care coordination while ensuring that each client, and their family, receives the support necessary to reach their goals.

Autism Care Partners provides services in both natural and controlled settings, designed to help each individual reach their behavioral goals.
  • Home-Based Therapy

    The home, often considered the most familiar and comfortable environment, allows patients, 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.

  • Community-Based Therapy

    Patients 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.
