Centerstone Autism Services: Think! Learn! Explore! (CASTLE) is an intensive, evidence-based therapy program for children between the ages of two- and five-years-old who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Serving children and families in Southern Illinois.
Learning of an ASD diagnosis can be challenging and frightening for families of small children. Our highly trained, dedicated staff is here to help guide you in the earliest steps for your child. We use state-of-the-art assessment tools and training programs backed by evidence based practices and the most recent research methods. We help you and your child by providing age-appropriate support in pre-academic skills, daily living skills, and language and social skills to help build the foundation your child will need for a lifetime of learning and growth. Our office is located in Carterville, Illinois, and serves Southern Illinois–including Williamson, Jackson and Franklin counties and beyond.
Even though the CASTLE program is for children ages 2-5, Centerstone offers a full array of support and therapy options to grow along with your child as they continue their development.
