Welcome!  The staff members of Wiebusch & Nicholson Center for Autism, Inc. (WNCA) are pleased to welcome you to our program. We want the participants in our program and their families to be informed decision makers.  To assist with that, we've developed this web site to provide information about our office and program.

This web site provides background on our director and associate director, information on the services we provide, office hours, appointment procedures, directions to the office, and other useful information.  We understand how hectic life can be and strive to make our program convenient and accessible.  As a provider of in-home services, we typically see our clients and their families in their own homes after one or two initial visits in the clinic.

We hope that the information in this website is helpful in informing you about who we are and the services we provide, and we encourage you to call us with any questions you may have or to schedule an appointment.

Wiebusch & Nicholson Center for Autism, Inc. (WNCA) provides intensive Applied Behavior Analysis therapy for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders.  Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) employs methods based on scientific principles of behavior to build socially useful repertoires and reduce problematic ones (Cooper, Heron & Heward, 1989).  To put it more simply, ABA therapy focuses on teaching skills systematically by breaking those down into measurable parts. Intensive therapy typically involves 25 to 35 hours per week of services.

WNCA incorporates ABA techniques individually chosen to best help our clients develop skills in a variety of domains including but not limited to communication, socialization, adaptive functioning, academic skills when appropriate, and building blocks to learning such as imitation.  We emphasize the pairing of therapists and therapy with positive reinforcement to make therapy enjoyable for clients while it is highly focused on achieving skills.  Throughout therapy, the collection and analysis of data are critical components for guiding programming to ensure effectiveness.  Oversight and supervision are high priorities, and we implement these through encouraging senior therapists to provide line therapy to best know their clients, monthly home visits from the lead therapist (psychologist) and clinical director, and additional supervision and staff training from the clinical director to meet client needs.  Involvement from families of clients is required to maximize generalization of skills during therapy and in preparation for the end of intensive therapy. In addition, WNCA seeks cohesion and coordination between our services and other valuable resources involved in a child's life including county service coordinators, school and other therapies.
