POOLER, Ga., March 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Early Autism Project (EAP), Inc., today announced it is accepting clients for its new clinic at 130 Canal Street, Building 400, Suite 404. EAP offers the highest quality of intensive, research-based behavioral treatment for children and young adults between the ages of 20 months and 21 years with autism spectrum and related disorders.
For more than a decade, EAP has been a leading provider of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy, which is widely recognized as an effective, evidence-based treatment for autism. EAP provides ABA services to families across the country, including military families at Ft. Stewart Army Base and children in homes and schools in Hinesville, Ga. ABA is endorsed by the U.S. Surgeon General and American Academy of Pediatrics as the treatment of choice for autism. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that one in 68 children has been identified with an autism spectrum disorder.
EAP’s ABA therapy services are covered under Georgia’s state employee healthcare plan and private insurances, and the company offers military families comprehensive, TRICARE-approved services at or near their bases.
Holly Brant, Board Certified assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA), has been named clinic director and will be responsible for the management of the Pooler clinic operations. She also serves as a clinic supervisor and regional coordinator for EAP. Brant began working with EAP in 2009; prior to that she was the lead teacher in an ABA classroom in the Georgia public school system. She earned an undergraduate degree in Special Education from Georgia Southern University.
“Providing Applied Behavior Analysis therapy to help more children with autism spectrum and related disorders reach their full potential is a primary goal for Early Autism Project,” said Ann Eldridge, EAP executive vice president and chief operating officer. “Our Georgia clients and families will benefit from the experience of our dedicated center director Holly Brant, and the EAP therapists who will provide ABA services to children in the Pooler area as well as our families at Ft. Stewart Army Base.”
