GUIDANCE WHEN YOU NEED IT MOST
North Star Family Autism Center was founded to provide support to individuals with autism spectrum disorder and their parents, siblings, or other caregivers as they navigate their experiences.
Using therapeutic approaches guided by research, North Star Family Autism Center offers family education, parent training, social support, and individual therapy for family members. Our therapists aim to walk alongside caregivers in their journey to build knowledge, coping skills, and confidence in caring for their family member with autism.
