We’re Here for You
Even if you are just beginning your family’s journey with autism, you probably already know someone who has it. According to the Centers for Disease Control, 1 in every 36 American children has an autism diagnosis.
Autism Spectrum Therapies (AST) was founded to help families just like yours. We’re celebrating more than 20 years of serving the autism community. It’s all because we wanted to give families the top-level care they deserve.
Dr. Ronit Molko and Dr. William Frea founded AST in 2001. They knew families needed focused treatment for children with autism, so they built a program centered around developing functional skills and independence in a child’s natural environment.
Today, AST uses evidence-based applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy to help kids and young adults with autism find success. Our goal is to empower our clients to build the skills needed to live a happy and fulfilling life.
AST is part of LEARN Behavioral, a national organization dedicated to nurturing potential in children and young adults with autism — and supporting families from day one. We consider you, as parents and caregivers, your child’s first and most important teacher, and we partner with you to create an environment in which you and your child can thrive.
Local Services, National Resources
Our team at AST delivers services across 8 states and counting. We’re also part of LEARN Behavioral, a national organization that specializes in using contemporary applied behavior analysis (ABA) to deliver treatment tailored exclusively to the unique needs of every child with autism in our care.
As part of LEARN, AST offers your child and family the convenience and familiarity of local services, with the advantages of a progressive and collaborative national organization at the forefront of autism treatment.
And the advantages are real
Since 2001, our local and national clinicians have treated more than 25,000 children. Our specialists use the latest research to refine treatment plans. We have extensive support and professional development. We make evidence-based treatment decisions, and we deliver personalized, effective care.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
AST knows we’re not all the same.
Recognizing differences and tailoring our approach are at the core of what we do. That’s why we’re committed to fostering a culture that embraces what makes us each unique. We know that different ideas, perspectives, and backgrounds create a stronger environment. We pledge to create a community centered around trust, respect, tolerance, and empathy.
Together, we’re better.
