A New Jersey company has opened a treatment center in the Harrisburg area for children with autism.

NeurAbilities Healthcare opened the treatment center earlier this month at 353 Markle Drive, Suite 4 in Swatara Township.

“Many children in Pennsylvania are in need of diagnostic evaluations, treatment, or both, and many remain on waiting lists,” Kathleen Stengel, chief executive officer of NeurAbilities Healthcare, said in a news release. “The sooner they receive these services, the better for the children’s development and their families’ overall quality of life.”

The new clinic features the following:

An indoor play area to help children learn a wide range of skills, including communication and socialization.
Special lighting that addresses sensory sensitivities.
Individual and group treatment rooms.
NeurAbilities also provides in-home treatment for children who live in the surrounding areas, and can serve children in their school, daycare program, or other community sites.

“Autism and other neurological conditions often affect a child’s ability to learn and participate in everyday activities,” Stengel said. “But proven, effective treatment makes a world of difference for both kids and their families.”

NeurAbilities Healthcare, formerly The Center for Neurological and Neurodevelopmental Health, was formed in 2005 by Dr. Mark Mintz.

Following the additions of new clinics in the Harrisburg and Pittsburgh areas as well as a new clinic in Delaware County, NeurAbilities will operate a total of 18 facilities across Pennsylvania and New Jersey. NeurAbilities also has a clinic on Charter Lane in East Lampeter Township.

NeurAbilities Healthcare is the premier provider of neurological, behavioral and neurodevelopmental services in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, offering comfort, hope and answers that transform the lives of individuals of all ages, and their families.
