JARC, an organization serving people with disabilities and their families, has announced the opening of The JARC Center for Autism and Rehabilitation Services.
Located at JARC’s Lois and Paul Katzman Administrative Building in Farmington Hills, the new Center will focus on providing Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA), speech therapy, physical therapy, and occupational therapy services. The 3,500-square-foot facility features new state-of-the-art equipment including a Pediatric Sensory Integration Room with a “Class Champs” gym set, a Pneu-Walker Body Weight Support System, and a Thera-Band Rehab and Wellness Station, along with much more to aid in delivering the best possible care.
"The JARC Center was created to help meet a growing demand in our community for state-of-the-art, life-changing therapies and treatments," said Bob Blumenfeld, JARC’s Chief Executive Officer. "The Center’s unique approach incorporates our Culture of Gentleness and our JARC Heart philosophy in a comprehensive array of evidenced-based practice that emphasizes safety, compassion and engagement."
ABA therapy, a primary service offering at The JARC Center, is widely recognized as the single most effective treatment for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Over 1,000 peer-reviewed, scientific articles describe ABA successes and show it to be the most effective method to teach children and adolescents with autism.
For individuals recovering from traumatic brain and spinal injuries, JARC understands the road to recovery isn’t just about healing the body, but rebuilding lives. The JARC Center will provide customized physical therapy services and treatments for catastrophic injuries. Speech therapists will help patients relearn language and reading skills or find alternate ways to communicate. Expert speech and language pathologists will help patients rebuild problem-solving abilities.
Highly-trained occupational therapists will help relearn decision-making and organizational skills while working on important memory techniques to help manage daily tasks. All therapies will come together toward the goal of regaining or sustaining the highest level of independence.
The grand opening of The JARC Center for Autism and Rehabilitation Services is scheduled for Sunday, February 28, from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event is open to the public and families are welcome to attend and enjoy a tour of the new facility. Please RSVP as space is limited. For more information or to make reservations, please call 248.488.7564.
