What do I do if I suspect my child may have autism? If you suspect your child may be showing signs of autism, schedule an appointment with your pediatrician. If your pediatrician suspects the same, have him/her refer you to ESCA for our ASD Diagnostic Clinic. We have a multi-disciplinary team, ADOS testing, little-to-no wait time, and feedback within one month of your visit. If your child is diagnosed with autism, we want to do everything we can to begin interventions right away. To learn more, call 334.288.0240.
How do I get involved in your CNA classes? The CNA classes at ESCA are offered at various times throughout the year and fill up quickly. The cost is $1,400 and includes everything needed to complete training and the fee for the exam. Financial assistance may be available through your local Career Center. Call 334.288.0240 to learn more.
How do I get my child in for speech therapy? We have a talented team of nationally certified speech pathologists here at ESCA that work with a variety of speech and communication problems. A doctor’s referral will be needed, and most insurance accepted. To schedule your appointment, call 334.387.3281!
Can you get me a job? This is a question we hear most often. If you are a person living with a disability, ESCA can provide the support you may need to help you reach your employment goals. With testing, training, workshops, one-on-one individualized support, information on current job openings, and post-employment support, ESCA’s Employment Programs are here to help.
