Autism Therapy Group Brings its Center-Based Care Model to Missouri with Opening of New Clinic in Weldon Spring

Caravel Autism Health, a leader in the diagnosis and treatment of young children on the autism spectrum, is hosting a ribbon-cutting on May 30 to celebrate the grand opening of a new, state-of-the-art autism therapy clinic. The clinic, located at 1114 Wolfrum Road in Weldon Spring, is staffed by childhood autism experts who specialize in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy.

ABA therapy uses positive reinforcement to help children with autism improve a wide range of skills including communication and social skills. The effectiveness of ABA therapy is recognized by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The clinic features colorful, sensory-friendly spaces where children work one-on-one with therapists to build skills, develop confidence, and learn to connect with the world around them. Caravel offers a full range of services including diagnostic evaluation, therapy, family support, and counseling.

“ABA therapy changes lives, but families in many communities have difficulty accessing this life-changing care because of a provider shortage,” explained Caravel CEO Mike Miller. “High-quality therapy early in life ensures that children achieve their full potential, so we’re opening new clinics to bring more resources and greater hope for families.”

The Weldon Spring facility is Caravel’s first autism clinic in Missouri; the company has plans to open several more this year. According to Caravel’s Kelsey Harper, Clinical Director and Lead BCBA, “We’re a company with Midwestern roots that has been helping children with autism achieve better outcomes and happier lives since 2009. We’re thrilled to be bringing this critical therapy to families in the St. Louis area.”

Parents of young children and others with questions about autism diagnosis and ABA therapy are invited to call 636-425-3437 or visit
