MARYLAND HEIGHTS, Mo., Feb. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Judevine Center for Autism has expanded offices at the Craig Road location in order to make room for a new clinic for Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and Speech/Language Therapy (ST) services. The clinic, "Roots on Craig," includes designated areas for gross motor needs, sensory needs, reading, younger children structured play, and older client work and recreation stations. Additional rooms are available to provide for a more controlled environment, therapy observations, and assessments. Using this space and additional training rooms, Judevine Center for Autism also has immediate plans to re-establish the world renowned parent training program.
In October 2016, Judevine employees at 1810 Craig Road moved to newly renovated offices on- site. The original offices were reorganized with Roots on Craig housed in an adjacent suite with a separate entrance. Clinic Coordinator Monica Doerr, MS, CCC-SLP, RBT, and Director of ABA Services Sian Price, BS, BCaBA, LaBA lead the design and program development, under the direction of VP of Programs Lisa Goolsby, MS, BCBA, LBA, and President/Director Rebecca Blackwell, MS, BCBA, LBA, with assistance from Operations Manager Michelle Martin, Executive Administrator Karen Draeger and Insurance Specialist Ashley Bateman.
Founded in 1971 and reconfigured in 2009, Judevine currently provides a variety of services throughout Missouri. Services include ABA therapy, community integration, 17 individual supported living homes, consultation, social skills groups, speech therapy, employment training, parent training, and respite. Judevine Center for Autism is the premier provider of autism services around the state, with hubs in St. Louis County, Jefferson County, Springfield, Branson West, Joplin, Kirksville, and Hannibal.
President/Director Rebecca Blackwell, MS, BCBA, LBA, daughter of late Lois Judevine Blackwell, founder of Judevine Center for Autism, states that the opening of Roots on Craig is an exciting opportunity for Judevine Center for Autism to further meet the needs of individuals and families. "This clinic is another layer of support provided to families within the community. We are continuously evolving and looking for more ways to have a positive impact, and Roots on Craig embodies the dedication, and passion, our team has for our mission as we continue to grow."
Judevine has already used this increased space to continue to build and expand clinical services, including a winter seasonal therapy program, "Polar Pals" for school aged children. Roots on Craig will also be utilized for additional season programs, therapy services, and a renewal of training opportunities. The grand opening was Thursday, December 15th, with an open house, ribbon cutting ceremony, and tours of the updated facility.
