The Community Coaching Center (CCC), a non profit that offers community-based, social behavior development and inclusion programs for children and teens with autism will be opening a second facility this coming Monday, August 30.
Replicating their current program based in Hillcrest, which has a proven 6-year successful track record, the expansion of CCC will now serve North County families, offering daily activities and promoting natural social development, independence and community integration for children with autism.
Specifically, CCC provides a skill-focused social, behavior and inclusion curriculum that takes place in a variety of community environments such as grocery stores, public transit, volunteer centers, recreation centers and much more. Through these daily field trips, CCC focuses on building, transitioning, and generalizing skills across multiple environments, with the ultimate goal of increasing the public's understanding of autism and how to welcome and include these individuals in all aspects of community life.
Last year, NFAR funding provided CCC with essential contributions to support the new facility, including computer equipment for staff and participants, as well as the extensive training for CCC North’s new staff in evidence-based autism treatment and experience-based learning. This training program, overseen by CCC North's new Program Director Misty Houchens, M.A., Autism Specialist, as well as Behavioral Specialist Dr. Rochelle Voth, BCBA, offers staff members a clear understanding of autism and how to address autism’s unique characteristics in community environments.
CCC North currently has openings available for children with autism ages 6-17 and will also be hosting an Open House Ceremony this fall for all community members interested in learning more.
