Autism Research in Evansville is challenging many to #rethinkautism!

Optimal Rhythms, Inc./ACCESS Academy autism research is making a difference in the way people understand non-verbal autism.  The movement and sensory differences are getting the attention they deserve and the students we serve are getting the appropriate supports, due to our improved understanding of their true strengths and struggles.

Optimal Rhythms is changing the way parents, grandparents, teachers, therapists, physicians, and others think about autism services in Evansville.

We are excited about our partnership with Colorado State University and First Foundation to be conducting important autism research in Evansville.
