The purpose of the Highlands Foundation is to support the nonprofit entities of Highlands Health System and other nonprofit community groups that promote community wellness and fund opportunities that improve the accessibility of healthcare for the people of the Big Sandy Area.
Highlands Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Highlands Health System, works to support many organizations throughout Eastern Kentucky. One of those organizations is the Highlands Center for Autism, the only center-based program in Kentucky exclusively using Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) in a clinical setting. ABA is a science that uses behavioral techniques to teach children basic and complex skills. It works by reinforcing appropriate behavior while decreasing or eliminating challenging behavior.
A pioneer in autism treatment for the state of KY, the Highlands Center for Autism, has led the charge in serving children diagnosed with autism and their families. Currently, the program serves children ages 2 to 15, and each child's program is specifically designed around Applied Behavior Analysis to meet their individual goals and needs.
