I am confident that the expertise, resources, and programs now available will make a meaningful, lasting impact on all who spend time with our team at The Anderson Center Clinic.”
Added Dr. Tina Marie Covington, PhD., BCBA-D, LBA, Chief Operating Officer at Anderson Center for Autism, “At The Anderson Center Clinic, we are pleased to offer evaluations and assessments, 1:1 center-based applied behavior analytic instruction, social skills groups, and school district consultations and support – including onsite teacher training and workshops. In addition, we offer families and caregivers a chance to experience an ongoing integrated support network that will support their journey and position everyone for the best possible outcomes. With 1 in 36 diagnosed, programs like The Anderson Center Clinic are critically important and we encourage anyone who might benefit to explore our offerings.”
Gina Feliciano, Phd, Anderson Center for Autism’s Chief Program Officer, continued: “Our team is composed of highly qualified professionals such as Licensed Behavior Analysts, Board Certified Behavior Analysts, and Registered Behavior Technicians; all have a wealth of knowledge.

Explained Tina Chirico, Chief Financial Officer at Anderson Center for Autism: “It is an exciting new chapter that is a direct result of many people and entities working together. As an example, The Anderson Center Clinic was supported by a $235,000 Empire State Development capital grant that was recommended by the Capital Region Economic Development Council. We’ve been building several relationships with community stakeholders as well in order to secure a strong financial future; we’re very grateful for the incredible support we’ve received.”
