Caravel Autism Health, a leader in the diagnosis and treatment of young children on the autism spectrum, has opened a new clinic in Iowa City.
Located at 2545 N. Dodge St., the clinic offers a comprehensive array of services for families designed to improve outcomes for children with autism.
Clinic specialists will provide evaluation and diagnostic services, individualized therapy programs, and family support and counseling. The clinic’s team creates customized treatment plans based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis therapy. ABA therapy is evidence-based treatment that helps children with autism develop skills, create connections, and gain confidence. ABA therapy has been proven to be the most effective treatment for children who have autism and is a recommended best practice by the U.S. Surgeon General and the American Academy of Pediatrics.
“Too often, families are forced to wait for services because there simply aren’t enough providers in many communities to meet the demand,” said Caravel Autism Health CEO Mike Miller. With the opening of the new clinic “families can immediately access these vital services.”
“When a child has autism, early identification is key to better outcomes,” said Tiffany Ebeling, clinic director. “Early diagnosis gives us the opportunity to provide the child with a customized ABA therapy program at a young age. We are so excited to be offering this life-changing treatment to local families.”
