In 1995 Murray D. Wikol and Nannette Wikol started the Autistic Children’s Treatment (ACT) Network to help children with autism, their families, and professionals. Their vision was that families and professionals would have a place to turn to for assistance. In 1992 their daughter, Anika, was diagnosed with autism. Murray and Nan were given only the diagnosis, no resources or referrals to guide them as they began their journey. It is because of this that they wanted to help other families.
In 2001 the ACT Network opened up The Early Intervention Center (EIC) to provide quality intervention services to children with Autism and their families. The EIC’s dedicated staff provides center-based services based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).
This year, EIC celebrates its 15th anniversary of helping children with autism and their families using evidence-based ABA therapy.
