The Growing Tree - Autism Treatment and Assessment Center, is a branch of AHPS. The clinic is located at 818 Winifred Street in Jackson. Our staff is made up of qualified, experienced, caring BCBAs (Board Certified Behavior Analysts) and RBTs (Registered Behavior Technicians) that are committed to helping your child flourish. We provide a comprehensive program for children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. We offer diagnostic screenings for autism and treatment in the forms of behavior therapy (applied behavior analysis), social skills training, and family training. We also provide the ADOS-2 for diagnosing and assessing Autism.
We have a wonderful outdoor space which allows the children to get outside in the warmer months. The children enjoy playing on the swingset, sand box, tending the vegetable and flower gardens, riding bicycles on our paved walkways, etc. Indoors, we have a great gym space, individual treatment rooms, and a kitchen which is designated for the children. We intentionally are a small clinic, designed so that we can provide quality treatment for every child. Each BCBA has their own team of technicians. Children are assigned to a specific BCBA and technician. They will remain with the child throughout their treatment process. Our goal is for the BCBA and technician to build a consistent and secure relationship with each child. At The Growing Tree, we realize that Autism can be complex and we want to help children and families grow with thoughtful, effective, and individualized treatment. The Growing Tree consists of Board Certified Behavior Analysts and Psychologists that will work together to provide the best treatment possible for your child.
