Jupiter FL Special Needs & Autistic Services | ASD BCBA | Staff



Project Hope Autism Services, Inc. was developed to meet the growing need for services for the Autistic Community in Jupiter, FL. We know how overwhelming it can be to receive a diagnosis of Autism, and we recognize that few programs offer the comprehensive approach that is needed for these individuals.


We aim to provide a diverse array of ASD services in the Jupiter area to help families and individuals reach their goals. 


Studies show that early intervention is critical in helping children diagnosed with Autism to reach their full potential. Research has demonstrated that language, academic, social, and cognitive skills can be significantly improved with early intervention for autistic children in the Jupiter area, as well as related disorders.


Our Hope Early Learning Program is designed to maximize your child’s developmental skills, help your family on this difficult journey, and offer the resources you need to navigate your goals and plan of action.
