INARF member LOGAN Community Resources, Inc. (LOGAN) is leasing space in Logansport, IN to open its fourth autism learning center on September 1. LOGAN was approached several months ago to assist in addressing the lack of resources for families with children on the autism spectrum. “The schools do a nice job ... but that’s during the school time. The families need support during the summer ... on the weekends and in the evenings,” said Cinda Milan, a former supervisor with a school-based special education resource and local advocate. “It really does take a village to help with this. If everybody’s working together doing that, then we can make a difference.
The center in Logansport will initially provide services to clients up to age 12, but hopes to expand to include services to teens in the future. Children may undergo as much as 35 hours a week of therapy through one of the LOGAN Autism Learning Centers, depending on their needs.
