Welcome to CCA 

We believe every child has the ability to learn 

CCA was formed to improve the outcome for children with autism spectrum disorder and their families.

We offer a variety of programs which address the communication, educational, social, and behavioral needs of children with ASD, to assure that they are able to achieve happy, fulfilling lives.

Here at CCA we believe that every child has the potential to learn. We work to identify a student’s areas of strength and challenge, and create an individualized program that supports their unique needs.

CCA School Program

The Cincinnati Center for Autism (CCA) believes that every child has the potential to learn. We work to identify a student’s areas of strength and challenge, and create an individualized program that supports the student’s unique needs.

All programs offered by Cincinnati Center for Autism utilize the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and empirically-validated intervention techniques to support the development of functional living skills.

Appointment Based Services

The Cincinnati Center for Autism not only offers a full time school program, but also offers a wide variety of appointment based services, which reflect our continuum of services. Applied Behavior Analysis, Consultation, Occupational Therapy,  Speech Language Therapy and Music Therapy are all offered by appointment to meet individual needs. 


Summer Services

The Cincinnati Center for Autism offers two, three-week long sessions in the summer to provide an opportunity for year round services. Students can come to our Camp Ability program, our Extended School Year service, or for a Functional Analysis. 

The summer program is designed to provide the structure and consistency that support skill retention in students with autism. Students are placed in ratios of 1:1, 1:3, with groupings based on approximate age and skill level.

How We Got Started

On September 11, 2001, while Americans were experiencing devastation on a national level, Matt and Susan Brennan were experiencing a crisis of their own. They were sitting in an office at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, receiving a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) for their youngest son.

The doctors at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital had expressed the importance of intensive, early intervention and the Brennans set out to find a local program that could deliver the recommended services. Unfortunately, they quickly learned that there were very few programs offering the treatment in the Cincinnati area and those that did, had long waiting lists.

Matt and Susan sought and found professionals to deliver the recommended intervention to Blake at their home. During the process however, they recognized the need for more treatment centers and resources in the Cincinnati area to support families who were struggling with the reality of raising a child diagnosed with ASD.

In 2003, their drive to add this important resource to the community resulted in the grand opening of Cincinnati Center for Autism!
