Our Vision

The vision of Bluegrass Center for Autism aspires to remediate deficits and strengthen abilities in the critical areas of:

  • Functional Communication

  • Functional Social Interaction

  • Functional Emotional Regulation

  • Functional Academic Skills

 

Bluegrass Center for Autism’s model is an integrated teaching approach, which begins with a strong foundation in ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) while incorporating Speech- Language Therapy, motor skill’s training, social skills training, independent living skills, vocational training and functional academics. We offer 1:1 child-instructor ratio in all our teams, resulting in the most intensely individualized instruction available. Community based services are provided with a 1:1 ratio, as well.

 

Bluegrass Center for Autism understands that children on the autism spectrum are successful when exposed to multiple opportunities to acquire, master, maintain and generalize skills within a variety of settings. We provide our children and young adults with over 100 learning opportunities every hour throughout the day to accelerate the learning process. Our highly structured days deliver an individualized experience to meet each child’s specific needs and promote their learning potential. Bluegrass Center for Autism uses evidence-based treatment approaches to create an intensive therapeutic setting to maximize each child’s ability to communicate, learn, adapt and be successful.

Our History

Bluegrass Center for Autism began as a response to the need for a center designed for children on the autism spectrum in 2010 as the Academy at Saint Andrews in Louisville, Kentucky. Over the years, and as the need for our services grew, the Academy at Saint Andrews grew beyond the basement of the Saint Andrews Church, and Bluegrass Center for Autism was born. As Bluegrass Center for Autism we committed ourselves to providing quality intensive 1:1 treatment utilizing the principles and methodologies of Behavior Analysis while incorporating the benefits of Speech Pathology.  We moved to two locations to serve two separate age groups. Kosair Charities, Inc. donates our building on Bluegrass Parkway in Jeffersontown, which serves children aged three years old to eleven years old. The Metts family donates our space at the Mid-City Mall serving our children and young adults aged twelve years old to twenty-four years old.
