Central Florida youngsters on the autism spectrum can now receive additional services thanks to the Florida Autism Center’s (FAC) new venue in Orlando’s Lake Buena Vista area, the group’s sixth facility, which opened earlier today.
Located at 1176 S. Apopka-Vineland Rd. and serving the Dr. Phillips, Windermere and Kissimmee areas, the new building provided the backdrop for a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house this morning from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Visitors explored classrooms, talked with staff and listened to a presentation about the program’s offerings.
"We are excited and honored to offer our high quality clinical care to the southwest Orlando autism community and continue to make progress towards expanding our services throughout Florida and the broader Southeastern United States," Chrystin Bullock, founder of Florida Autism Center, said. "Our mission is to enable each child in our care to reach his or her personal potential and we look forward to having the opportunity to collaborate with the community and families to advance this commitment."
FAC specializes in early intervention based on ABA (applied behavior analysis), a form of training targeted to young children with behavioral, verbal and social components. FAC also provides an alternative school with the help of a McKay Scholarship.
The organization operates locations in Daytona Beach, Palm Coast, Lake Mary, Gainesville, and Tallahassee, with plans for future sites in St. Augustine, Apopka and Lake Nona.
