Early, comprehensive, home-based behavioral treatment gives children the opportunity to access specialized support to learn and grow in a safe, meaningful, and personalized way.
The Wisconsin Early Autism Project specializes in the delivery of comprehensive early intensive treatment programs to pre-school aged children. By delivering treatment in your home, we work closely with your family to give your child the opportunity to learn new skills in the context in which they will be used.
