Life’s WORC Family Center for Autism is now a Proud Member of the Council of Autism Service Providers!

Life’s WORC Family Center for Autism is now a proud member of the Council of Autism Service Providers (CASP)! As a provider of Applied Behavior Analysis this membership will be crucial to our development and growth in the field.

CASP is committed to promoting the use of evidence-based practice (EBP) for the clients served by our member organizations. To date, Applied Behavior Analysis has the strongest evidence for supporting persons on the Autism Spectrum. EBP in Applied Behavior Analytic service delivery entails the integration of clinical expertise, the best research evidence for delivering behavioral intervention, and well-articulated ethical standards. The best research evidence comes from sound experimental methodology that demonstrates functional control of teaching or clinical procedures over target behavior.

The Council of Autism Service Providers is a non-profit association of for-profit and not-for-profit agencies serving individuals with autism spectrum disorders.

CASP is an emerging association with the following goals:

*Ensure quality, safe and most effective care

*Promote continuous quality improvement

*Help to ensure that the money spent for care and treatment is directed to the most effective, evidence-based practices

*Represent providers of care to government, payers, and the public

*Write and share public policies that balance effective treatment and economic principles
