Mercy Children's Hospital has been a leader in providing autism
services to the Toledo Area. In 2004, Mercy's Pediatric Clinic
Therapists started the CHIP (Clinic Home Intensive Program) in response
to community need for a comprehensive and intensive program for
preschool children with autism. Since 2004, the autism services provided
have grown to include a comprehensive list of programs and expanded
into a specialized clinic in Maumee, Ohio.
Mercy Autism Services can provide services to children from birth through the age of 12. Dr. Richard Solomon, a renowned expert, author, and international speaker on autism is the Medical Director of Mercy's Autism Program.
Mercy Autism Services emphasizes evidence-based autism intervention. We are the only program in the Northwest Ohio Region that utilizes Applied Behavior Analysis, Occupational therapy, Speech Therapy, as well as the P.L.A.Y. Project as core concepts of the program.
