Mitchell’s Place is a comprehensive autism treatment center and Accredited Early Learning Preschool for children ages two to six. Established in 2005 after a local family became frustrated by the lack of services and autism treatment options for their son, Mitchell. Mitchell’s Place works to meet the growing need for specialized services for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and their families, in the greater Birmingham area and across the state.
Mitchell’s Place provides an array of outcome-based, early intervention programs specifically designed to enable children with autism to reach their highest potential before transitioning to a public-school setting. The Early Learning Preschool (ELP) is an Accredited program and consists of four classrooms serving children ages two to six. Operating year round, it is an inclusive program serving both children with autism and an equal number of typically developing peers. Teach Me is another early intervention program involving an intense individualized curriculum for children with autism who have extensive needs in a one-on-one sett. A third educational offering at Mitchell’s Place is the After-School Social Groups that teach children how to socially interact in a group setting. In this program, children ages six to ten learn social, recreational and life skills. Additionally, Mitchell’s Place offers Speech, Occupational and Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy services in an outpatient model.
