Mitchell’s Place specializes in improving the lives of children affected by autism and other developmental disabilities, and also focuses on early learning for preschool aged children. We use quality diagnostic, educational and therapeutic services provided by highly skilled therapy teams to unlock each child’s potential. These teams work to remediate social, communicative, adaptive and academic functioning while simultaneously reducing and decelerating maladaptive behavior.
At Michell’s Place, we employ highly qualified and caring therapists, analysts and teachers to implement each child’s treatment and instruction. We provide accurate and on-going assessment to create individualized and comprehensive treatment plans. In addition, we empower our parents with the specific skills essential to support their child’s learning.
Together, with dedicated parents and families, we are committed to unlocking each child’s potential with the aim of improving the quality of life for our clients and families.
Mitchell’s Place values diversity, equality, equity, and inclusion. We believe that no student, staff, family member or visitor should be treated differently based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, ability status, socioeconomic status, political opinions, or religious affiliation. We are committed to making diversity, equality, equity and inclusion a cultural norm by creating a climate of mutual respect within and outside the walls of Mitchell’s Place.
History of Mitchell's Place
Mitchell’s Place was established in 2005 after Nancy and Allen Meisler became frustrated by the lack of services and autism treatment options for their son, Mitchell. Allen and Nancy spent years searching for a facility to help their son, only to realize no full-service facilities existed in the state of Alabama. Through their constant advocacy and support, Mitchell’s Place has now served over 2,500 families throughout the Southeastern United States.
Mitchell’s Place works to meet the growing need for specialized services for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and their families, in the greater Birmingham area and beyond.
