Inner Circle Autism Network Open House Inner Circle Autism Network Opens New Oklahoma City-Area Clinic to Increase Access to ABA Therapy for Children With Autism - Inner Circle Autism Network

Inner Circle Autism Network is opening a new specialty clinic for children with autism in Moore in April 2024. This is the company’s third location serving Oklahoma and is motivated by strong demand for Inner Circle’s services as well as robust caseload at its other two Oklahoma City-area locations.

The new Moore location is now open for enrollment and provider referral with no waitlist. Inner Circle Autism Network is an in-network provider with most private insurers, as well as SoonerCare.

One in 36 U.S. children are diagnosed with autism, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, up from 1 in 54 children in 2016. ABA is considered an evidence-based best practice treatment by the American Psychological Association and the standard of care by the American Academy of Neurology, American Academy of Pediatrics, Society for Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics, National Institute of Child Health & Human Development, and National Institute of Mental Health, among others.

ABA supports children with autism in learning new skills and positive behaviors, such as communication, social awareness, positive peer interactions, academic engagement, self-care skills, and play skills, and in mitigating challenging behaviors, such as tantrums, bed-wetting, and self-injury.  

 “With more children receiving a diagnosis of autism, it’s more important than ever to increase access to evidence-based therapies and bring ABA therapy to more children,” said Sarah Mathison, BCBA, LBA, chief clinical officer, Inner Circle Autism Network. “Our dedicated and highly qualified board-certified behavior analysts and technicians work with children and families through hands-on, play-based interactions to foster learning, skill development, and academic readiness.”

“Meeting the needs of children with autism in Oklahoma is a priority for Inner Circle Autism Network,” said David Mikula, CEO, Inner Circle Autism Network. “Our growth strategy is designed to make sure that every child diagnosed with autism can access convenient, high-quality, and evidence-based ABA therapy.”

Inner Circle Autism Network’s other clinics include two in northwest Oklahoma City and four in Arkansas – in Springdale, Bentonville, Jonesboro, and Little Rock.
