WHO WE ARE

Nolan’s Place is an autism therapy center that offers effective behavioral treatment to children in early childhood diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. We provide a place of support, love, encouragement and opportunity for children in early childhood with autism spectrum disorder and their families.

We believe that your child has a unique set of talents and strengths that should be embraced. Our staff includes a licensed marriage and family therapist, a lead therapist with 6 years of experience working in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), and multiple behavioral technicians experienced in working with children with autism.

OUR STORY

Nolan’s Place was founded in 2018 by Sallie Graves and Jill Fellows. When Sallie’s energetic, loving, and intelligent son, Nolan, was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, the lack of services for children with autism in the Willmar area became increasingly evident. Together, Sallie and Jill, Nolan’s school-based occupational therapist, were called to bring support, love, and services to families affected by autism that otherwise have very limited access to these necessities.

WHAT WE DO

Individualized 1:1 treatment that focuses on your child’s specific needs, skills, interests, and family situation.

Research has strongly shown that best outcomes are achieved through an intensive program. Therefore, we require a commitment of at least 20 to 40 hours per week of therapy to help your child reach their full potential. The number of therapy hours recommended for each child is based on the results of a comprehensive evaluation.

Areas of focus may include the following skills: social, play, cognitive, adaptive, behavior management, language, motor, healthy family functioning.

Early intensive behavioral and developmental intervention using principles and techniques of ABA to bring about meaningful and positive change in your child’s behavior.

ABA is widely recognized as a safe and effective treatment for autism.
