Harsha Autism Centers



Our Story

Paras Harshawat, M.D and his wife Roopam have lived in Terre Haute since 1990. Dr. Harshawat was the Medical Director of Charter Hospital in Terre Haute from 1990 to 1999 during that period Dr. Harshawat started his private practice and his wife Roopam managed the practice.

Dr. Harshawat has always had great compassion for individuals with developmental disabilities, MRDD, ADD, autism etc. having treated a large number of patients with this diagnosis. He has also been the medical director of several facilities that house these individuals and travels long distances to take care of them.

Recognizing the need for inpatient psychiatric services in the Terre Haute area Harsha Behavioral Center was formed and it opened its doors on August 18, 2008.

Due to Dr. Harshawat’s expertise in treating children and adolescents with autism the hospital started seeing a significant number of patients admitted with autism. These patients were coming to the hospital from all over the Midwest.

The Harshawats realized that these children and adolescents needed ongoing care to improve the quality of their lives and Harsha Autism Center was started.
