History of the Children's Autism Center
The Children's Autism Center (CAC) began in August 2013 with a $26,000 grant from United Way of North Central Iowa. Christina Maulsby, who has two young sons with autism, helped found the center. The CAC is located on the Village's Clear Lake campus.
The backbone of our approach always will be the best practices based on current studies. In September 2015, two Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) joined the Children's Autism Center to oversee clinical services. Jesse Logue, Ph.D., and Lauryn Toby, Ph.D. completed their Post-Doctoral Fellowships at Kennedy Krieger Institute and Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
