hile it might seem like a new ABA clinic opens every day in the Indianapolis area, ABA Autism Services by Damar stands out from the crowd.
It's the only one that can back up its ABA services with decades of experience meeting the needs of people with autism in Central Indiana. And it's the only one that can draw from a full spectrum of professional services – from in-home support to residential care – to assist families.
Most telling, perhaps, it's also the only ABA clinic that carries the Damar name, a name nationally associated with leadership in helping people dealing with autism and other developmental challenges.
Established on Indianapolis' southwest side in 1967, Damar has helped thousands of Central Indiana children and adults confront and overcome issues associated with autism. After nearly five decades of pioneering treatment, in 2013, Damar opened its ABA services location on Indianapolis' northeast side.
ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) is recognized as the best-practice treatment for children with autism, helping them address challenges with communication, social interaction, and restricted and repetitive behavior.
Damar matches this proven approach with a "whatever it takes" promise and a focus on putting the family's needs first. And, as a nonprofit organization that accepts Medicaid and private insurance, Damar serves families that otherwise might not have access to ABA services.
"We work through barriers to make sure families get the services they need," said Kristin McCoy, Director of ABA Autism Services by Damar. "If it's a transportation problem, we work through that. If it's a funding or scheduling problem, we work through that. And if a child needs something different, we have access to everything Damar offers."...continued on page 2
