The compassionate team provides individualized and evidence-based treatments in a safe and supportive environment and focuses on a child's strengths and preferences to develop goals to improve the quality of life for the child and family.
The center offers a variety of programs including one for Early Learners, a full-day program for children ages 18 months to 6 years old, and one for School-Aged Children, with an afternoon schedule. The center will also provide The CONNECTIONS Program, which is designed to teach children about social skills and group learning.
The center is contracted with most major insurance plans and has a bilingual staff for Spanish-speaking patients and families.
The center will create at least 30 new, full-time jobs with strong starting pay and robust benefits, including PTO and holiday pay.
"We are excited to open this new center in the Springfield community and be able to provide the high quality of care and support needed for even more children and families affected by autism," said Tim Murphy, CEO of The Stepping Stones Group. "We are committed to our mission of transforming lives together and we look forward to making a positive impact in the lives of children and their families."
"We are thrilled to be open in Springfield and offer a unique environment for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The center feels very warm and offers a nurturing environment through the layout and setup, which gives some insight into who we are as a company and making sure the kids come first," said Melissa Rosskothen, Director of The Stepping Stones Group Program.
The center will host an open house on Wednesday, February 8th from 5:00 – 8:00 pm (ET) and invite the public to tour the facility, meet the team, and learn more about the services they provide.
