TILL's Autism Initiative program provides an innovative approach to working with individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Developed as an expansion of the TILL Central/Billerica program, we established this highly specialized program resulting in thorough, practical assessments and behaviorally based teaching plans suited to each individuals' learning style.

  • Consistency, structure, and close collaboration with clinicians and direct support professionals offering interesting, varied and structured activities.
  • Frequent interdisciplinary meetings with our behavioral, occupational, physical and speech therapists ensure consistent programming throughout all disciplines.
  • Strattus @TILL Mental Health Clinic offers neurofeedback, a form of biofeedback proven to be beneficial in treating symptoms associated with Autism Spectrum Disorder. This nonintrusive, noninvasive intervention viewed on a computer screen, is clinically proven to establish effective neuropathways and reduce symptoms such as hyperactivity, anxiety, and sleep difficulties. Only our clinicians trained in neurofeedback techniques and a credentialed psychologist provide this service.
  • The Autism Initiative offers a well rounded schedule of daily activities with very structured consistent teaching methodologies developed for the person with autism. Sensory and therapeutic activities coupled with community interests such as working in a cable TV station, jobs with TILL entrepreneurial business; Candy Central, active participation with local farm projects, food pantries, and therapeutic horseback riding are just a few of the options available.

The Autism Initiative's professional staff participates in ongoing training to ensure that they remain current with techniques and information on ASD. In collaboration with TILL's Autism Support Center, the direct support staff and clinicians form an excellent collaborative team dedicated to an individualized approach to working with participants.

TILL has made me understand that we all have individual differences and we are created differently. No matter how you are created, each person has talent, ability and wisdom, what is more important is for each person to identify his or her talent and skills for enhancement through self-determination or by the support of others.
