Private Autism Spectrum Disorder Services

home-f

O’Connor Professional Group is a concierge service and does not accept insurance. We do our best to help clients find treatment providers who accept insurance.

Approximately one in every fifty-four children is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder; a limited number of individuals in that group receive the treatment and care that they need.

OPG Autism Spectrum Disorder Services include options targeted to individuals and families seeking support and services for a loved one with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Many individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder may have a co-occurring mental health condition or other behavioral issues, which can be addressed through OPG services.
