LittleStar ABA Therapy Receives Coveted Autism Speaks “Provider of the Year” Award at 11th Annual Autism Law Summit

Carmel, Indiana – LittleStar ABA Therapy (formerly Little Star Center) was the proud recipient of the 2017 Autism Speaks  Provider of the Year Award at the Autism Speaks Annual Autism Law Summit, which took place on October 27th -28th in San Diego.  The Autism Law Summit brings together parent advocates, autism service providers, lawyers, individuals with autism, lobbyists, and legislators from across the United States to discuss the policies associated with autism spectrum disorder.

The Provider of the Year Award is not given out every year. This year, Vice President of State Government Affairs at Autism Speaks, Lorri Unumb, on behalf of Autism Speaks, honored LittleStar ABA Therapy with the nation’s ‘Provider of the Year’ award in appreciation of exceptional advocacy on behalf of individuals with autism.

LittleStar ABA Therapy is based in Indiana with six ABA therapy center locations across the state.  LittleStar is the longest running ABA provider in the state of Indiana opening its doors in 2002.  The organization operates as a non-profit, and supports efforts to raise funds to help their families when insurance issues arise. LittleStar ABA Therapy also has a dedicated national advisory board that includes some of the foremost experts in the field of autism and ABA.

The mission of Little Star ABA therapy is to inspire, serve, and guide all those touched by autism to achieve a better reality.  As LittleStar’s Chief Operations Officer, Tim Courtney, explains, “Our goal is to help individuals with autism to learn not just to live, but to thrive in the world.”

“We offer a warm, welcoming environment,” says Mary Rosswurm, Executive Director of LittleStar ABA Therapy and mother of an adult with autism, and we’re fortunate in having a team of caring professionals with the highest credentials to provide ABA therapy for our children, teens and young adults.”

And as for being awarded Autism Speaks Provider of the Year: “We couldn’t be more proud!”
