About Us

Changing Challenges Into Strengths

Harsha Autism Center’s facility is a therapeutic center serving the Wabash Valley for individuals with neurobehavioral issues that features a flexible design that enables us to structure the facility to meet the needs of each child, rather than expecting the child to conform to our structure.

 

The facility was designed to be open and modular. We recognize that the needs of one child don’t always reflect the needs of another and our facility is flexible as a result. Unlike many centers serving this population, we don’t modify the environment to make it dramatically different from neurotypical environment until we have proof of concrete benefits from such modifications.

This approach reduces the barriers our clients must overcome to become comfortable in more traditional surroundings.

Our Mission

Harsha Autism Center’s mission is to provide high quality services, enhancing the quality of life for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder, uplifting families through support and to provide opportunity for growth to our employees.

Our Core Values

At Harsha our core values are integrity, excellence, empathy, and collaboration

After working factory jobs for 20 years I was wanting a change that would be rewarding as well. I learned great (RBT) Registered Behavior Technician skills at Harsha. We care for your clients, like they are our family. I love watching the kids achieve skills they will use on a daily basis. We also have some of the best training staff you could ask for. This is a great place for kids in the spectrum to get the best care. I love my job.

Overall, working at HAC has been a positive, rewarding experience! The management at HAC does a great job to support their staff. Some of my favorite HAC activities would have to be the carry-ins, Starbucks runs, and spirit dress up days. In my own experience, they have also been extremely supportive in my academic endeavors and recognize the difficult balance between work, school, and social life. Charity, the director, has always been especially supportive. She is very considerate and understands that her employees have lives outside of work. I absolutely love the people I work with as they truly have a passion for their jobs and are making huge differences in the lives of these children. I, personally, have been able to quickly advance through the organization and have been provided opportunities that would not be possible at other ABA centers. I'm lucky to be an employee within this organization and am excited to see where the future takes me!
