Mission: The Autism Services Program at Easterseals Capper Foundation is committed to being a community leader in improving the quality of life and independent functioning of individuals living with autism through training, communication, and collaboration.

Comprehensive evaluation, individual service plans, and parent training are provided for children diagnosed with Autism and their family by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). Individual Intensive Support Providers and the Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) carry out direct services to children in their home, daycare and community settings.

Our emphasis is on engaging children through interactions, activities, and materials that are meaningful, motivating and naturally rewarding whenever possible. Generalization to everyday interactions and activities is the target from the onset of treatment. Learn more about the focus of services here.
