Autism Services

Wesley Spectrum understands that an autism diagnosis can be a significant challenge for a family as it affects not only the child, but the entire family as well. We are here to help. We are uniquely positioned to assist our local families with services and treatments.

“The staff are respectful and do not treat the clients like children. I also like how I am now in a group of people who are actually able to hold conversations with me without it seeming forced or awkward.” 

 

Our Approach

Wesley Spectrum bases autism treatment on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) because we value quality service and evidence-based practices. Our staff utilizes data-based decision making, and positive, proactive strategies to provide customized treatments.

We:

  • Are committed to continuous improvement in the services we provide
  • Strive to create an environment in which children are able to build lifelong skills and staff are able to successfully transfer abilities.
  • Hold ourselves accountable for treatment outcomes.
  • Support our clients in becoming more independent, responsible, and caring members of their community.

Please contact the Centralized Admissions at 412-342-2270 or email centralized.admissions@wesleyspectrum.org concerning questions about our Autism Services.
