Centerstone Autism Services: Think! Learn! Explore! (CASTLE)

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).

CASTLE can help with a variety of challenges faced by children diagnosed with ASD including developing complex language and social skills (e.g., engaging in conversations with peers), completing daily living skills (e.g., toileting), learning age- and developmentally-appropriate academic skills (e.g., reading and writing), as well as decreasing challenging behaviors (e.g., aggression, non-compliance).

Goals are determined based on a comprehensive assessment of the child’s current skills and deficits and may include skill domains such as development of age-appropriate academic and daily living skills, development of social skills and language, or behavior reduction.

Prior to beginning CASTLE therapy, a BCBA will conduct a comprehensive assessment of the child’s current skills and deficits. Language and behavioral assessments are used to identify potential causes for a child’s challenging behavior, as well as specific skills or general skill domains that should be targeted for improvement over the course of treatment.

Services will be provided in-clinic through a one-on-one format with a therapist or behavior analyst from the child’s treatment team. The BCBA assigned to the child’s case will create an individualized treatment plan for the client.

Centerstone’s clinic-based service model includes ongoing support for parents and caregivers, as well as frequent parent training. Parents may receive a variety of trainings related to their child’s programming including but not limited to addressing behavioral concerns, implementation of the behavior plan, teaching activities of daily living, language and communication training, and providing learning opportunities in-home.

CASTLE is located at 402 East Plaza Drive, Suite #5, Carterville. Currently, CASTLE is accepting private pay and commercial insurance clients. For more information, call 855-608-3560.
