Making Possibilities Realities
An overview of Marcus Autism Center and each of the core program areas.
Autism and Related Disorders
Every child has unique needs, and every treatment plan is tailored to reflect those needs. In general, the staff of Marcus Autism Center uses variations of a behavior analysis model, therapy and medication—if needed. After understanding the needs of a child and his family, the staff develops an individual treatment plan to help them address those needs in a caring and compassionate environment.
Behavior Treatment Clinics
The Marcus Autism Center Behavior Treatment Clinics provide a range of services, based on applied behavior analysis (ABA), from behavioral assessments to in-home interventions for children exhibiting skill deficits or problem behaviors.
Community Autism Program
The Marcus Autism Center Community Autism program offers in-home services to families of children with autism and related disorders. Behavioral parenting counselors help families address their child’s behavioral needs by developing interventions to improve social and self-help skills.
Pediatric Feeding Disorders Program
The Marcus Autism Center Pediatric Feeding Disorders program is one of only a few facilities in the country, and the only program in the Southeast, to offer empirically supported, intensive day treatment for children with feeding disorders.
Pediatric Neurodevelopmental Center
Patients benefit from having everything from evaluation to diagnosis and treatment to follow-up assistance at Marcus Autism Center, providing a continuum of care that serves as a constant structure for patients to reach their full potential.
School Consultation Program
The Marcus Autism Center School Consultation program provides consultation, direct assistance and training for school systems to better serve children with behavioral issues, especially those diagnosed with autism and related disorders.
Children with autism and related disorders need convenient access to care, but it is not always possible for families to bring their child to Marcus Autism Center. To increase the availability of these crucial services, Marcus Autism Center offers community-based programs and outreach clinics to serve more families.
Marcus Autism Center is now working with Georgia Partnership for Telehealth to improve access to specialized care through the use of telemedicine services.
