The Moore Counseling Center's autism specialty staff, directed by Jennifer L. Morris, Ph.D., will move their services to the new Moore Autism Center, which will stand next to the Moore Counseling Center. The MAC psychologists will continue to provide the highest level of autism diagnosis and professional reports. Treatment options will include TEACCH, ABA, and PCIT. One ambitious MAC goal is to reduce the wait-time for an autism evaluation from 1 year down to 3 months.
The MAC will be a true autism center, in that professions in addition to the current autism specialist psychologists will be added over time. Speech Language Pathologists will help heal the communication disorders that all children with autism suffer. Occupational Therapists will help heal the physical and sensory disorders that are common among children with autism. The MAC will be a one-stop center to meet the psychological, behavioral, communication, and motor needs of this important and growing population. The presence of these multi-disciplinary specialist providers will also allow the generation of multi-specialty evaluations and reports, which will result in more precise diagnoses and more comprehensive treatment plans. The MAC will be one of the few facilities in the state capable of such a state-of-the art product.
