Success Stories

"I want to give a big thank you to Jon and Molly and the staff that worked with Jesse. We had an excellent experience with RCA. He grew so much while there and we appreciate all the help given by everybody to make him the good, smart boy he is today."

“The therapists at the Rochester Center for Autism provide a one-of-a-kind, patient focused treatment plan tailored to the child's specific needs. Their passion and professionalism exude from all of the services they provide, including parent support groups, as well as their involvement in numerous community programs. RCA supports individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders and their families in an unprecedented way.”

“During my tenure as Director of the Mayo Clinic-Dana Child Development and Learning Disorders Program, it was my privilege to collaborate with the Rochester Center for Autism. Whenever possible, I referred patients to the RCA because I could be certain that they would receive outstanding, state-of-the-art treatment from a group of highly trained, dedicated and caring staff. Every family that I referred to RCA reported that they were grateful for the care their child received at RCA. The Rochester community is fortunate to have RCA as a resource for children with autism spectrum disorders.”
