PITTSBURGH, Nov. 16 AutismLink, LLC, the parent company of The Autism Center of Pittsburgh will open its third satellite autism center in the Mt. Lebanon area of Pittsburgh since its initial opening in the fall of 2006.
The first of its kind in Pennsylvania, the Autism Center of Pittsburgh opened its doors last year to provide family support, psychological evaluation and diagnosis, occupational and speech therapies, and a vast array of programs for families of children with autism spectrum disorders.
The third office, slated to open on December 1, 2007 will be located at 666 Washington Rd., Pittsburgh, PA 15228 in uptown Mt. Lebanon where families can attend support group meetings, receive therapies, visit the parent education centers and get direction and assistance in navigating various therapies and interventions.
"We were the first in the State to open such a facility last year and we're very proud of that fact," said Cindy Waeltermann, Center Director. "There was never a place to go under one roof for all of these services. Not only did we provide one Center, but we have been so successful, we are opening our third satellite location," she said.
The Autism Center of Pittsburgh and Aspire Pediatric Therapy service over 700 children a week at their three locations in the North Hills, Moon Township, and Mt. Lebanon locations.
