In 2006, 2008 and 2015, renovations were conducted at MMI to develop and expand space for the Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders (CASD), which is presently housed in approximately 10,500 sq. ft. of specialized training, research and treatment space.
The behavioral assessment and treatment programs of the CASD include on-site clinical and training programs in:
- early intervention;
- severe problem behavior;
- pediatric feeding disorders; and
- virtual care.
The CASD facility consists of:
- four early intervention classrooms for young children with autism, each containing a shared play area and individual cubicles or rooms for individual therapy;
- one indoor playground; and
- 16 self-contained therapy rooms, each equipped with one-way observation windows.
The facility is fully equipped with furniture, office equipment, computers, digital audio-visual recording equipment, and an ample support staff.
