Responding to Autism is open for services. However, your safety is our top concern and priority.

We understand you may be concerned about how coronavirus and COVID-19 might affect your health and our services.  We want to assure you that infection control and surveillance for COVID-19 is our top priority.

Please know that:


  • We are staying updated about COVID-19 by following the guidance with our local state health departments and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

    • Sanitizing before, during, and after appointments.

    • Limiting office based services to one-on-one sessions and appointments only.

    • No touch temperature checks and symptom/exposure questions.

    • Staff will be wearing face masks and face masks will available for clients to use.

    • Anyone entering Responding to Autism must immediately wash or sanitize hands.

  • Our staff has been educated on the emergency preparedness plan.
