Allenhurst Autism Testing
Empowered Learning Transformation Centers
Autism Testing Allenhurst
The mission of the ELTC is to assist people with autism and related disorders throughout their lives as they learn, play, work and live in the community. ELTC is a private, nonprofit, corporation providing its services 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Services include residential, educational, therapeutic, adult programs and research.
ELTC was established in New Jersey when autism was still a largely mysterious developmental disorder.
In fact, it was such a rarity that 1 in 10,000 children were diagnosed with autism. There was little known about autism and next to no treatment or therapies being offered.
A small group of six parents, all with children with autism, spent several years carpooling 70 miles every day. When their children "aged-out" of that program and were no longer eligible to receive their services, this group of parents came together to find a solution. Their children were older now but were no less autistic. As with many innovations, the Center was born out of necessity.
For how many years, ELTC has strived to meet the needs of the community who seek our expertise and experience. With the exponential increase of autism, now 1 in 68, our programs have had to expand and serve more individuals. The increase in services has also seen an increase in ELTC budget.
This is a brief history of the core programs that make up the Autism Testing Allenhurst. A view of our ELTC Timeline marks the remaining milestones of how we got to where we are now - the opening of
Therapy Clinics in other state of the country, the establishment of an Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy program, and the opening of our 21st group home (16 of them already mortgage free).
ELTC has a long history of parents advocating for their children and helping to shape its growth. Each program developed addresses a specific need for the children and adults needing our services.
