Burton center now offers new services for autism support
BURTON, Mich. - New autism services are now available for families in Genesee County.
The Strive Center for Autism opens today offering BCBA therapy to children up to the age of 12.
This will all be hubbed inside the Autism Support and Resource Center in Burton.
Until now, families had to travel more than 30 miles to access special skill teaching techniques for their children.
"Since his diagnosis four years ago, I have driven up to 2 to 3 hours a day for therapies,” said Toiya Turner, whose son is autistic.
"What this means for families in Genesee County is that we have access to quality ADA therapy to help our kids reach their full potential to be able to thrive in both academic and social settings,” added father Rafael Turner.
A ribbon cutting ceremony was held Tuesday announcing the opening of the center.
