Libertyville, Ill. Autism Center Announced

December 30, 2015

LIBERTYVILLE, Ill. – December 30, 2015 | “The future looks bright with organizations such as Trumpet Behavioral Health leading the way,” says Dr. Mark Dixon, BCBA-D, editor of ‘Behavior Analysis in Practice,’ a peer-reviewed translational publication designed to provide science-based, best-practice information relevant to service delivery in behavior analysis.

Families seeking evidence-based autism therapy services in Northern Illinois will soon have access to a convenient option as Trumpet Behavioral Health (TBH) opens doors to a new center-based autism therapy program in Libertyville on January 18, 2016.  The Autism Center is located at 28045 N. Ashley Circle, Suite 201.

TBH clinical services are based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), a systematic, evidence-based approach designed to address challenging behaviors and skill deficits in areas including communication and social skills.

Kristen Cooper, MA, LMFT, BCBA, Clinical Director with Trumpet’s Wisconsin and Illinois regions, details the decision to open a center in Libertyville.

“Center-based programs have several significant benefits including increased availability of social opportunities with a variety of peers as well as group learning possibilities that help prepare learners for observational learning in the natural environment. We greatly value parent collaboration and as such, parents are involved and provided with training in all aspects of our center-based programming. This model also extends greater flexibility for families and contributes to improved family balance, based on parent feedback we’ve received.”

Lani Fritts, Chief Executive Officer at Trumpet Behavioral Health, echoes Cooper’s sentiments while highlighting the need for more service providers in the region.

“Our new center enables us to grow awareness and acceptance of autism while opening up new opportunities for enhanced development for children with autism throughout Northern Illinois. Together, working with local agencies, parent groups and resource providers, we will deliver expert services and evidence-based therapy to effectively maximize the potential of every client we serve directly and indirectly.”

As part of its effort to provide the best services possible, TBH created a family accounts department to educate parents and to provide free insurance eligibility reviews. TBH’s insurance specialists have expertise in navigating the “ins and outs” of insurance mandates, benefits plans and Regional Center requirements.
