Kirian was diagnosed with Autism at the age of 2. His mother, Jessica, noticed that his vocabulary wasn't developing the same as other children his age; he was having trouble forming words and getting frustrated when no one understood him. That all changed when they came to the Olympic Peninsula Autism Center.
The center uses intensive Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) therapy to help children with autism develop their social and educational skills at the most critical time in their lives. ABA therapy is recognized as the most effective treatment for autism, and has enabled children across the country to lead fulfilling lives, and keep up educationally with their typically developing peers.
