Penn Foundation Opens Family Autism Center

Penn Foundation has opened a new Family Autism Center to offer the community much needed services for children and adolescents on the autism spectrum and their families. The Center is located at 708 Washington Avenue in Sellersville (across the street from Holiday House Pool).

Made possible with support from The Clemens Family Corporation and a generous family foundation that wishes to remain anonymous, the Center is currently offering autism assessments (ADOS-2), behavioral services, outpatient family counseling, psychiatric services, a social skills group, and resources for other providers and community members.

With an increasing number of children in need of assessments, our Family Autism Center will allow children to receive the testing they need for a clear diagnosis and recommendation of services that are individualized to the child’s and family’s needs,” explains Debra Springer, Director of the Family Autism Center.

The Center will not only offer services for children and adolescents on the autism spectrum but will also address the needs of their family members. “We feel that supports for caregivers and family members are equally important.  Since services for family members are limited, we wanted to incorporate these types of supports into our Center,” says Springer.

A full launch of services, including family workshops and sibling support groups, is expected in early 2017. Click here for more information.
