Child’s Play Autism Centers

From early on, creating a new standard for clinical care was a passion of our founders Jason Shaw and Becki Fulcher. They wanted a place where patients of all ages and need, along with their families could come to seek exceptional outcomes, all while adding to the meaning of what an ABA clinic should be. In its beginning years, the clinics started with a small group of therapists, offering intervention in a few small locations, and for a brief time, in the community only. But thanks to their dedication to their science, passion for their mission, focus on convenient on-site amenities and generalization experiences, and an ever-increasing number of passionate caregivers, Child’s Play Autism Centers has grown beyond our wildest imagination. And we are just getting started.

When you arrive at Child’s Play today, you’ll find the finest clinical staff and their support teams intervening on everything from early learning, problem behavior reduction and replacement (including severe aggression and self-harm) and family education; not to mention social programs, diagnostics, and family support counseling. From our dream of a clinical experience beyond the norm it’s blossomed into, Child’s Play Autism Centers continues to inspire our commitment to clinical excellence, growth, and community support.

    “When looking for a school or center for a child with autism, the resources are limited when a typical school environment is not functional for your child. We came upon Child’s Play Autism Center and immediately fell in love with the one-on-one interaction for our daughter. Not only does she get one-on-one ABA therapy in her own private therapy room, she also has the opportunity to interact with other students. There are so many areas for her to “play” and learn. There is a music area, pretend play area, gross motor area, sensory area, kitchen area and so much more. She gets the chance to go shopping at the grocery store to work on social behaviors as well as takes trips to the mall. And she goes out to lunch to work on her social and public goals. All of the staff is amazing and is in constant communication as to how my daughter is doing. They are all so supportive! My daughter has excelled greatly since beginning at Child’s Play Autism Center!!! I am so thankful they are here in Ft. Wayne!” – Parent Review
