Farmington Hills, Mich. —November 1, 2019— Judson Center, a multi-county human service agency that provides autism programs, behavioral health services, child and family services including foster care and adoption in tandem with its affiliate, Child Safe Michigan, employment services for persons with disabilities, and primary care for all ages, announces the organization’s Ann Arbor site for Autism Connections has relocated to larger space at 3917 Research Park Drive, Suite B-1A in Ann Arbor, 48108. The phone number is 734-794-2930. The Packard Rd. Ann Arbor location of Judson Center continues to offer children and family services, including foster care, adoption, early head start and family preservation programs.
Judson Center’s highly regarded Autism Connections program offers evidence-based, staff-intensive Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services and delivers a continuum of care to individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and their families, including family counseling, parent training, Sibshops, occupational therapy, and speech services—minimizing a family’s need to drive around town to obtain these services. Autism Connections Ann Arbor is enrolling new families at this time.
From pre-education skills (communication, play behaviors) to community and daily living skills, and soft skills training for jobs, Judson Center’s Autism Connections has grown to serve hundreds of individuals from 18 months to early adulthood, including individuals in its annual summer autism camp. In 2018, Judson Center introduced Bridges to Success, a non-residential program on the Royal Oak campus using ABA therapy to help teens with autism develop relationships, independent living and pre-vocational skills as a gateway to successful adulthood. In May 2019, Judson Center opened a new 4,000 square foot Autism Connections program in its Warren location. Also, approximately 25% of the individuals in Judson Center’s vocational training services have an ASD diagnosis.
