Founded in 2001, AST is one of the largest and most respected autism services organizations in the United States. Together AST and AFC offers families in Chicago and the Northern suburbs a uniquely comprehensive approach to autism therapy.
AST’s commitment to individualized care aligns with AFC’s multidisciplinary approach to treating Autism Spectrum Disorder by providing a full range of services including Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).

Center based services
Half-day and full-day programs for early learners.
Our center-based program is designed to support kids ages 18 months to 7 years old by providing a comprehensive ABA program that emphasizes naturalistic teaching strategies so that kids learn through play. Our program supports many of the necessary skills for school, including: communication skills, behavior goals, social skills and making friends.
Center-based services can also be combined with home-based services to increase generalization of skills in the natural environment.
Intensive Behavior Therapy
Programs at AFC's ABA Therapy Center work on each child's individual goals. ABA Counselors address challenging behaviors that inhibit the child's ability to learn. Programs are based in school, at home, and at the center.
Comprehensive Counseling for Autism
Autism Family Center provides a comprehensive approach stemming from two disciplines - Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and Clinical Counseling. Counseling provides emotional support and coping skills for the entire family. Young children can benefit from the effects of Play Therapy Counseling.
