URBANA, Ill. (WCIA) – Tuesday was the official welcoming to the community for one clinic.
There was a ribbon cutting for the Place for Children with Autism at Lincoln Square Mall in Urbana.
They’ve been open since September 4th, but this was also a chance for people to come and take tours of what they have to offer.
They provide applied behavior analysis therapy, or ABA. It teaches appropriate replacement behavior.
The clinical director, Jessica Gruber, says they have several clinics in Chicago, but wanted to come here.
“There’s just a great need down here, not only for the younger population, but also for the older population as well on the autism spectrum,” said Gruber.
People who went to the event could sign up to do a one-on-one sit down for other services they provide.
