The mission and philosophy of The Founders Center is to provide people with autism and other developmental disabilities across the lifespan with services that enable them to reach their full potential. We offer assessment and intervention services that meet each person’s support needs. The Founders Center is operated by Commonwealth Autism.


Diagnostic Assessment Services

Our clinic serves children ages 18 months and older and can help families answer the question regarding the presence of an Autism Spectrum Disorder.
