Bill & Virginia Leffen Center for Autism

Bill & Virginia Leffen Center for Autism, developed in consultation with the Cleveland Clinic Autism Consulting Group, opened in fall 2007 with a preschool program. Since then, the center has expanded services to include children birth to age 21 and families.
Individuals with autism spectrum disorders often need targeted therapy to help build life skills necessary for transition into mainstream classrooms and a more independent future. Bill & Virginia Leffen Center for Autism provides evidence-based, life-changing Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy to children, adolescents and young adults with autism spectrum disorders.
