Acute Autism Stabilization & Assessment Program:

An Accelerated Program for Adolescents with Autism and Behavioral Issues

Blueprint for Success: Accelerated Program



This intensive program is approximately 28-days and is specifically designed to reach mid-to-high functioning adolescents over the age of 10 with ASD and related developmental disorders who are exhibiting behaviors that interfere with their success at home and school.


This program uses the same evidence-based practices Springbrook Autism is noted for in an accelerated format to stabilize, start treatment, and create an intensive outpatient plan. For those who need longer care to stabilize, a transfer to Springbrook Autism Residential Program is possible based on criteria and bed availability.

Why Do You Call Your Program a Blueprint for Success?


While a blueprint is not the building itself, it is a specific, detailed plan for how to create the finished building. Similarly, our accelerated program will provide each family with a thorough, actionable road map to help their child achieve ongoing success.

By the end of our approximately 28-day program, each family will receive:

Family Education

We will provide concentrated, one-on-one parent and family education that is interactive and evidence-based with a program specifically designed to address behaviors.

Discharge Instructions

We give each family detailed discharge plans and recommendations from a wide range of experts in the field of autism, targeted toward the long-term success of their child.

A Blueprint for Success

Each family will leave the program with a personalized manual, or blueprint. This document will include copies of all assessments, a detailed behavior plan, tools, and references to help guide the family and outpatient professionals, which will help continue the student’s success and provide a seamless transition to long-term treatment provided in schools, outpatient, or group living settings.

Built For Long Term Success

Springbrook’s Programs and Therapies for Autism


We believe that adolescents with autism don’t need a short-term solution that only addresses their surface behaviors without understanding the underlying causes and triggers behind the behaviors. They need a complete, integrated behavioral therapy program that gets results.

Our noted clinical staff practices broad-scope treatments, including testing, assessments, plan development, and evidence-based therapies that are tailored to individual needs.

**Program Expectations

The program is designed to accomplish accelerated stabilization and assessments in approximately 28 days. Depending on their functioning level and abilities, clients may require longer stays and/or potential transfer to a residential program. However, it is our expectation that the program will provide enough progress and information to continue successful treatment with professional staff on an outpatient basis.
