Autism programs offered at two YMCAs than girls. Research by the CDC indicates that the earlier autism is recognized, the more you can do to help a child reach his or her full potential. Two YMCA of Greater Cincinnati branches now offer specialized autism programs for pre-school children. “My goal for children in our program is for them to be able to graduate from here and move into the least restricted environment possible,” said Director of the Autism Programs at the Blue Ash and Clippard Family YMCAs Courtney Lee. “The setting here at the Y allows the children so much exposure socially.” There is a 2-to-1 student ratio in the autism program and children receive ABA-based individual instruction, along with access to a behavior analyst.

On a sunny winter afternoon, a group of preschool boys and girls are running around the playground at the Clippard Family YMCA, some laughing as they fly down the slide, while others try to touch the sky as they are pushed on nearby swings. These children are a little different than most enjoying a fun afternoon of play; these children have an autism spectrum disorder. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that one out of every 100 children have a form of autism, a developmental disability that impacts the normal development of the brain in areas of social interaction, communication skills, and cognitive functions. The National Autism Association reports that autism generally appears before the age of three and is more common in boys

gymnastic classes, and much more is available on a weekly basis. Viviane and Craig Martini of Miami Township adopted their 3-yearold son Rex from an orphanage in Armenia.

“We were told he would never be able to talk,” said Viviane, who added that he said his first word at the Clippard Family YMCA Autism Center. “He said ‘cracker’ and has now added ‘go’

to his vocabulary. I am so pleased at the progress our son is making, but what I love most about the Y is the loving atmosphere that exists there to help our child succeed.” “When my son first began attending the Y Autism Center, the only four word sentence he said was ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.’ Now, a year later he constantly amazes me with his growing vocabulary,” said Jennifer Zielinksi of Monfort Heights. “The staff at the Y constantly encourages him to do more. He is even learning passwords for his iPad! The sky is the limit.” She is hopeful that her 5-year-old can attend mainstream classes by third grade.
