TWIN CITIES, Ill. — Twin Cities kids with autism will now be able to receive the care they need thanks to the opening of the Caterpillar Autism Learning Center.

GBC ABA is providing an alternative to traditional settings by creating a fun and exciting learning environment for kids on the spectrum.

The center will use principles of Applied Behavioral Analysis to teach social skills, school readiness and communication skills in a class-like setting.

“We can focus on each child individually and help them in whatever way that particular child needs,” said Maddie Carlino, with the learning center. “With that 1:1 ratio, and that ABA foundation, it’s more support for these kids with autism than they would get in a typical pre-school setting.

The learning center will serve children ages 2 to 7.

The program will begin on September 3rd but enrollment is open right now, leaders say there is no waiting list for parents looking to apply.
