6 Things You Need to Know

It Feels Like Home

All our facilities feel like home. We hear this often from families and visitors alike. Tremendous thought has been put into the design of our facilities to appeal to staff, families, and children.  Check out photos and video tours of our three locations in Columbus, Greenwood, and West Lafayette, Indiana.

It Feels Like Family

We truly have the best staff around. We are very selective about whom we let into our “family.”  We take great care to train and reward amazing talent. The end result—our families receive top-notch care for their children because our employees love what they do.

We’re Plugged In

We use technology to our advantage. From the very start, we have utilized keycard access for security and closed-circuit cameras for clinical observation and training. We have never used the paper binder system that most other centers still use. We use iPad software to capture data in real-time and use that data immediately to propel the child faster.

We’ve Got You Covered

Unlike other providers, we don’t employ an outside billing agency–we have our own insurance department. Our staff is dedicated to our families and help with everything from checking benefits to securing authorizations to processing claims. In addition to the numerous commercial insurance plans we accept, in 2011 we became the first center in the greater Indianapolis area to accept Medicaid.

It’s A Team Effort

We value parent education and involvement.  Helping children with autism improve requires more than ABA during the day.  We believe life skills must continue to be developed after your child leaves Cornerstone.

  • Training Coordinators–Our Training Coordinators offer training workshops designed for parents on a variety of ABA-related topics.
  • Regular Parent-Therapist Communication–Our BCBAs meet with parents regularly to make sure they understand their child’s program and are available for in-home or community-based support if needed.
  • Parent Liaison–Our Parent Liaison puts together seminars and conferences on autism related topics and is available to meet with parents on everything from potty training to special diets.

We’ve Been There

Cornerstone was founded by parents of a child with autism, and we have several staff members who also have children on the spectrum. This personal experience has helped shape the type of center we have because it is what we want for our own children.
