Who we are

Minnesota Autism Center (MAC) provides therapeutic services to children and adolescents between the ages of 2 to 21 who have autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Our services are center-based and in-home, utilizing several therapeutic modalities, including applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy, to develop individualized treatment plans and group learning experiences delivered in a 1:1 ratio or group learning setting with a team of licensed professionals.

What is ASD:

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disorder that affects communication and behavior. It is described as a “developmental disorder” because symptoms generally appear in the first two years of life. It is also referred to as a “spectrum” due to the wide variations of the types and severity of symptoms experienced by people.

What causes autism?

There is no known cause of autism, however leading researchers believe that there is a genetic predisposition with an environmental trigger. Science is still working on what the genetic correlation is and what the environment triggers are.

How is it diagnosed?

MAC’s team of experienced doctors and Licensed Mental Health Professionals are capable of providing initial screening and diagnosis of autism and provide on-going assessments and evaluations. Our assessment and diagnostic services are available to current MAC families as well as those who have not yet established a relationship with MAC.
