Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
Oak Hill offers a variety of services to help individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). ASD is distinguished by a wide variation of social, communication and behavioral deficits. Our programs address all of these developmental issues and help people with autism live fulfilling lives as independently as possible.
Oak Hill continues to expand its services to people with autism spectrum disorder. It’s philosophy remains constant – people with disabilities have the right and capability to be contributing, productive members of their communities.
Through referrals from the State Department of Developmental Services Oak Hill is able to provide children and adults with a primary intellectual disability diagnosis and/or a secondary diagnosis of ASD, a wide continuum, of services such as: behavioral supports from BCBA’s, community-based housing, education and day programs, individual and family supports and relationship & sexuality education.
