Caravel Autism Health on Tuesday announced it is opening four autism treatment centers in the Minneapolis/St. Paul/southern Minnesota region. Locations in White Bear Lake, Woodbury and Plymouth will open over the next three months. A location in Mankato opened this week, becoming the company’s fifth facility.
In a news release announcing the openings, Caravel noted the higher prevalence of autism diagnoses in Minnesota—1 in 42 children in the state are diagnosed with autism, outpacing the national rate of 1 in 59—which has increased the area’s need for treatment services.
Caravel offers diagnosis and individualized treatment, with clinical psychologists evaluating children for autism and other conditions, and specialists creating and leading individualized applied behavior analysis treatment plans.
