Welcome to Great Lakes Center for Autism Treatment and Research

Great Lakes Center for Autism Treatment and Research (GLC) is a program of Residential Opportunities, Inc. (ROI), a nonprofit mental health organization that has been serving Kalamazoo and beyond since 1978. Since 2012, GLC has been providing evidence-based, state-of-the-art applied behavior analysis (ABA) services for children and adolescents who have a diagnosis of autism and similar neurodevelopmental disabilities. We believe in helping the children and adolescents we serve reach their full potential in their community and beyond.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Join us this February for the 11th Annual Youth Hockey Fights for Kids with Autism games! Prior to each high school game, a GLC graduate will participate in a ceremonial puck drop. During the puck-drop, their journey/story will be shared…sure to warm your heart! Other activities include an online silent auction from 2/5/23-2/11/23 and chuck a puck. Proceeds from the event will benefit the youth and families served and the programs at Great Lakes Center for Autism Treatment and Research.

ABA treatment from Great Lakes Center for Autism Treatment and Research can change your child’s life

Children in behavioral treatment scored significantly higher in IQ and adaptive behavior scores than the comparison group. Further, 29% (6 of 21) children were fully included in regular education without assistance and another 52% (11 of 21) were included with support. This compares to only 5% (1 of 21) children in the control group who were placed in regular education. (Cohen, et al., 2014)
