COVID-19 Health Crisis

During the COVID-19 Health Crisis Mariposa Autism Service Center is providing services via a blended model of face to face and telehealth services. Some families, who are elidgiable, may utilize Telehealth for their child’s services. We are also still providing services face to face for our families. We want to keep the families we work with safe, keep our staff safe, and keep our community partners safe.

MASC

Autism is a complex neurological and developmental disability that is diagnosed during the first two or three years of life. There are three domains where Autism presents itself: lack of (or limited) verbal and communication skills; lack of (or limited) social and play skills; and excessive stereotypic or repetitive behaviors. Autism is a spectrum disorder, and no two kids with Autism will act or behave the same.

 

Prevalence

Autism is the most common of the Pervasive Developmental Disorders, impacting an estimated 1 in 59 children (Center for Disease Control Prevention).

Autism is not limited by racial, ethnic, or social boundaries, family income levels, lifestyle choices or educational levels.
Autism can impact any family and any child.

Although the overall incidence of Autism is consistent across the globe, it is five times more prevalent in boys (1 in 37) than in girls (1 in 151).

The Autism Awareness Ribbon

The puzzle pattern of the Autism Awareness Ribbon reflects the mystery and complexity of autism. The different colors and shapes represent the diversity of people and families living with this disorder. The brightness of the ribbon signals hope. Hope through research and increasing awareness in people like you. You may see some of our team members wearing the awareness ribbon from time to time.

Service Areas

Mariposa Autism Service Center provides in-home ABA therapy in Dona Ana County (Las Cruces, Chaparral, Anthony, La Mesa, Berino, Chamberino), Deming, and the Albuquerque Metro area.
