We tailor activities and strategies to address those needs with evidence-based interaction and communication tools including: specialized training for staff and families in Autism Spectrum Disorders, Positive Behavior Supports, Social Cognition Supports, Splash the Spectrum, Autism Movement Therapy, Assessments and Supports for Sensory Challenges, and Visual Supports. Lexington also hosts the Fulton-Montgomery Chapter of the Autism Society of America and the ASPIE group.
