The generosity of donors helps FOCUS serve this unique and special population in the best way possible.
FOCUS Center for Autism, located in Canton, Connecticut, specializes in the treatment of children, adolescents and young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Since 2000, we have served more than 360 families throughout the state.
Within our Extended Day Treatment Program and our two group homes, we provide:
- Structured Milieu
- Flexible Scheduling
- Life Skills Training
- Social Skills Training
- Sensory Integration Techniques
- Mentorship Program
- Social Groups
- Parent Support
- Clinical Support for Families
- Consultation and Collaboration
Our goal is for the children, adolescents and young adults we serve to be able to develop a greater sense of self-awareness, to learn to grow both socially and emotionally and to begin to understand who they are and how they “fit” into their world. Social learning is the backbone of all our programs and we do this through a unique treatment model called Milieu Therapy.
