Services

Jackson Autism Center offers a wide variety of services in order to meet the diverse needs of the Children, Parents, School Districts, Professionals and Advocates in Mississippi.

Center-Based Services

Center-based services are currently available one on one. By providing one on one intervention, a child’s needs become the priority of the session and more progress can be made. Intervention services focus on a variety of areas such as pre-academic/academic, social skills, behavior, and ┬ácommunication. Practical evaluations provide the necessary framework to begin working on goals and objectives that are needed to further the child’s abilities.

Note: Small group services are now available for children who are ready to begin practicing social and academic skills with their peers. Please contact JAC for more information and an initial placement assessment for small group services.
