Autism Care Partners Opens Three Centers During Autism Acceptance Month – Amherst Grand Opening & Open House April 12th

Autism Care Partners (“ACP”) continues to expand services to families throughout Massachusetts opening a new center in Amherst, MA. ACP is one of the most scaled autism providers serving families in the Northeast. Amherst is one of three centers opening during Autism Acceptance Month, followed by Avon, CT, and Framingham, MA.

“I am extremely excited to be able to expand the opportunity for greatly needed therapeutic services for children and families diagnosed with autism in the Western MA community. With the opening of the Amherst center, families will have access to high- quality, interdisciplinary services including Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA), speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, feeding therapy, and diagnostic evaluations. I look forward to working with and supporting clients and families by offering compassionate care in an enriching environment that provides children with opportunities for growth and development,” said Nikki Snizek, Amherst’s Managing BCBA.

As one of the largest autism and related service providers in Massachusetts, ACP is focused on ensuring “no wrong door” to individuals on the spectrum and their families by providing and coordinating ABA, diagnostic and related services across diverse care settings. With nine treatment hubs currently across the state, ACP is continuing Massachusetts expansion in 2023, while also deepening its growing bench of diagnosticians, social workers, speech therapists, and occupational therapists. Additionally, ACP continues to invest in its best-in-class clinical model, enhanced through The Visual Immersion System™ (VIS™), an evidence-based and pioneering Boston Children’s-developed language acquisition intervention.

“With the increasing prevalence of ASD diagnosis, we are grateful to be part of the solution to Massachusetts families by increasing access to evidence-based, interdisciplinary care,” said Andrea Lavigne, Ph.D., Chief of Regional Service Delivery.

On April 12th at 4:15 p.m. Amherst’s Town Manager & CEO, Paul Bockelman, will officiate the grand opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony. In addition to local officials, ACP happily welcomes families, academic and medical partners, health plan colleagues and community members to its new center, to learn about ACP and its comprehensive suite of interdisciplinary services. The open house is from 3:30 to 6:00 p.m. at Autism Care Partners – Amherst located at 100 University Drive Amherst, MA.
