INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) – Indianapolis-based Hopebridge Autism Therapy Centers is expanding its multidisciplinary services with six new locations in Arizona, Georgia, and Indiana. The organization says the expansion, which includes a new location in Plainfield, will create more than 325 jobs.

The center says its new facilities will offer a range of benefits and services, including diagnostic and applied behavior analysis evaluations, state-of-the-art facilities designed specifically to enhance pediatric therapy for a spectrum of functioning levels, and large gyms and playrooms to build gross and fine motor skills, among others.

“Our key focus is to provide support and essential therapy services to as many children with autism spectrum disorder as possible,” said Hopebridge CEO Dennis May. “Many parents are searching for answers and need solutions. By bringing Hopebridge centers to these six new locations, hundreds of families will benefit from faster access to autism therapy services closer to home.”

Hopebridge says its mission is to reduce evaluation wait times in order to provide diagnoses and personalized therapy services at a younger age.

The organization says its teams consist of Board Certified Behavioral Analysts, registered behavior technicians, clinical psychologists, occupational therapists, speech and language pathologists and other industry professionals.

Hopebridge announced earlier this year planned expansions in Colorado and Minnesota.
