The Autism Center, at 266 King George Road, Warren, is quickly expanding its vast range of services. The Autism Think Tank of N.J. provides medical assessments to medically fragile autistic children and adults. A multidisciplinary team of expert senior medical specialists from across the continent meet with parents and doctors in a videoconference setting to review cases, make recommendations and find solutions for the medically complex problems and behaviors of this difficult to treat population.
, the Center's Director and Founder, whose 13-year-old son is autistic, decided that bringing renowned, multidisciplinary expert doctors into one room using videoconferencing was the best way for this team to come together and look for solutions as a group.
When his son was first diagnosed at a young age, Dr. Abend and his wife embarked on a course of exhaustive searches to find solutions for their son's medical and behavioral problems. These searches led to Dr. Abend's vision becoming a reality at the Comprehensive Autism Medical Assessment and Treatment Center. not just to get help for his son, but for other medically fragile autistic children and adults, as well. The Think Tank Team has already helped and continues to work with numerous children and adults from as close as New Jersey to as far away as Boston, the U.K., and Bangladesh.
The Center also provides a wide range of services for the autistic and special needs population and has expanded its traditional therapy program with the addition of Bright Star Therapy, LLC. Bright Star provides a wide range of therapies including Speech-Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Sensory Integration Therapy, and Physical Therapy. Our integrative medical therapy services include: Therapeutic Touch and Craniosacral Therapy and Art Therapy.
Look for more therapeutic, supportive, and educational services as we continue to grow and help the autistic and special needs population and families.
