Midwest Autism & Therapy Centers Welcomes New Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) to Their Iowa-Based Campuses

Midwest Autism & Therapy Centers is proud to announce the addition of three talented Board Certified Behavior Analysts to their Iowa programs. The team expansion is part of a larger organizational effort to bring new clinicians to Des Moines, enhance Midwest’s capacity to deliver high-quality Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy to children on the Spectrum, and to expand access to Autism services through the use of telehealth and hybrid care.

And the number of diagnoses continues to rise as healthcare providers develop new screening methods and parents become more aware of the early signs of Autism in children. By bringing new Behavior Analysts to Iowa from a national pool of candidates, Midwest is working to meet the increased need for ABA therapy in the Des Moines region.
