Autism Centers of Michigan Opens New Center in Cadillac

The city of Cadillac is making strides to make sure children with special needs can thrive in the community by opening up a new autism center.

The Autism Centers of Michigan hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony Friday to open their fifth center right here in Cadillac.

For the last two years, applied behavior analysis services were provided in home.

Now the autism center will offer individualized services for children with autism.

It will provide one on one therapy where kids will be able to interact with other children and progress on their social and developmental skills.

“We’ve been growing and growing all around the area and to see towns like this, where we can provide a really large impact by opening our centers, is really awesome for everyone that’s involved and we’re looking around the state for different areas like this that we can continue to do things like this, “ said founder Jordan Boudreau.

So far the center works with 26 families and they hope that number will continue to grow.
