Glenwood Early Learning Center provides autism spectrum therapy

Staff Report

ABA Services of the Roaring Fork Valley recently announced the grand opening of the Early Learning Center in Glenwood Springs, which offers a clinic-based applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy and socialization program for children.

The public is invited to join staff for tours and information at either of its two open houses today, between 9-11 a.m. and again from 5-7 p.m., at the Early Learning Center, 201 14th St. #109.

Previously operating in the Denver Metro Area, ABA Services of the Front Range and Roaring Fork Valley expanded in 2018 to include cities from Rifle to Eagle in the Colorado River Valley and Glenwood Springs to Aspen in the Roaring Fork Valley, according to a news release.

ABA Services provides therapy for children with autism spectrum disorder, learning disabilities, ADHD, and a range of developmental disabilities and health conditions.

According to the release, its new center in the Roaring Fork Valley offers an opportunity for area children to receive ABA therapy in a school-styled setting.

“Modern peer-reviewed literature shows that a high density of treatment at a young age creates marked increases in skill acquisition in young children,” owner and founder Maura Wamsley said in the release.

“Every moment of a child’s day is a learning opportunity,” she said. “It’s important for children in the Roaring Fork Valley to have this venue to receive both ABA therapy and socialization with their peers in a clinic-based setting.”
