The Autism Center for Diagnosis and Treatment in Southeast Missouri plans on sharing resources with other area autism centers. Centers sharing space and resources include: The Tailor Institute; Touchpoint Autism Services; and Thompson Outreach Center. The center provides assistive technology to help children with autism learn to communicate; in addition, they have a sensory room, an occupational therapy room, and an outdoor playground. Therapies are provided by licensed therapists as well as by supervised Southeast Missouri State therapy students. The State of Missouri, like others, has legislation pending that would increase financial options for autism treatment.
