Autism Day Program
Dr. Paras Harshawat plans to open a continuum-of-care center for individuals with social and communication challenges, such as autism spectrum disorders.
The new facility will offer applied behavior analysis (ABA) center for individuals with neurobehavioral challenges.
A variety of services based on the scientifically proven, applied-behavior-analysis (ABA) approach will be available, including center-based treatment, home therapy and supervision, parent training, and school shadowing. In addition, other complimentary evidence-based services such as speech, occupational therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy will be available to enable families to get all of the support needed at a single location which would dramatically improve the future prospects for children with Autism.
These services expand Harsha’s legacy of helping some of the most challenged individuals in the region attain full and productive lives. Harsha currently operates Terre Haute’s premier acute care Mental Health hospital for children, youth and seniors. The clinical team is led by Paras Harshawat M.D., child and adolescent Psychiatrist. Planning for the development of the center is underway, with the opening to be scheduled as soon as possible.

Please join us as we host a support group for family and friends who have loved ones diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder; PDD and Asperger's.
Our Autism Support Group has been cancelled until further notice.
