CooperRiis is pleased to welcome people with autism/neurodiversity at our Farm campus.
This enhanced programming will specifically serve people who have mental health challenges that are considered the primary diagnosis and who are on the Autism Spectrum (High Functioning Autism and/or for people formerly diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome).
CooperRiis Welcomes People with Autism/Neurodiversity
This programming folds into the mission of CooperRiis and its core person-centered and strength based treatment within a Healing Community model. CooperRiis’ mission is to improve the lives of individuals struggling with mental illness by helping them work towards achieving their highest level of functioning and fulfillment. CooperRiis’ integrative recovery approach, wellness practices, intensive clinical services, and building of independent living skills serve as a necessary and beneficial foundation of recovery for this area of specialization.
CooperRiis’ CEO & President, Dr. Eric A. Levine believes that the CooperRiis model is optimally designed to serve people with neurodiversity and mental health challenges. With his specialized background and 30+ years of experience as a special educator, program developer and consultant, he served a wide range of children and adults with multiple disabilities, including autism. CooperRiis’ clinical team is guided by Dr. Levine’s expertise in enhancing their services to meet the needs of people with neurodiversity to better prepare them for independence.
“I’m a believer in programs that maintain possibility and hope as core values while also stretching to serve a broader spectrum of people. CooperRiis is a place where people come to heal and learn new skills to help them better manage the challenges they are experiencing to return to their lives. Serving people with neurodiversity within this mission is a natural addition to our program model.”
