ACCEPT. UNDERSTAND. LOVE.

The Illinois Center for Autism (ICA) is a not-for-profit, community-based, mental health treatment, and educational agency dedicated to serving people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Referrals are made through local school districts, hospitals, doctors, and the Department of Human Services. Our goal is to educate and serve children and adults with autism to help them achieve their highest level of independence in their home, school, and community. We offer a variety of programs designed to help individuals from 3 years old to adulthood. If you have questions or are in need of resources, we would love to speak with you.
