The New Hartford Chamber of Commerce welcomed new member, Dr. Andy Lopez-Williams and ADHD & Autism Psychological Services and Advocacy (AAPSA) on April 22nd during the Grand Opening of their new state-of-the-art facility for children with autism. The new facility on the Par Technology campus features an open concept which blends rich educational components with fun and exciting activities and learning opportunities for their clients. It boasts a new classroom, computer and technology space, arts and crafts area, and a functional play space that allows them to incorporate learning with everyday life skills.
Over the past 14 years, AAPSA has established itself as one of the leading assessment and treatment centers for neurodevelopmental disorders in the CNY region. Part of their mission is to educate the greater community about evidence-based practice, particularly emphasizing early diagnosis and intervention. A wealth of scientific evidence supports that treating autism in preschool years leads to much better outcomes. This new facility allows their team of highly-trained professionals to provide an intensive level of positive support to children with autism, teach new skills, reduce challenging behavior, and prepare each child for a successful transition into a structured educational setting.
“AAPSA is incredibly excited about this new facility which will allow us to provide children in our community with the very best therapeutic, educational, and social experience!”
