Ardmore, Inc. began specialized services for adults with Autism in 2002 with specifically built homes to meet the needs of individuals with Autism.  In July of 2005 we opened a home with services for children with Autism.

Ardmore’s Frontier Initiative is expanding and developing specialized residential services for those with Autism. Ardmore is a member of the National Association of Residential Providers for Adults with Autism (NARPAA). The Association consists of twenty-six leading agencies across the country specializing in autism specific residential services.

Not just houses ... Homes

The only group home in Summit County for children with autism was opened by Ardmore, Inc. on July 1, 2005. The home, located in Ellet, was established at the request of Summit County Board of MR/DD and is owned by the Summit Housing Development Corporation.

There is only one other residential facility in Ohio that provides for specialized needs for children with Autism. The new home in Akron provides caseworker support and an IPP plan to four boys that attend Akron Public Schools.

“We are very pleased to have been selected as the residential provider for this innovative and pioneering initiative,” said Rebecca Lemasters, Executive Director of Ardmore. "CSBMR/DD and Summit County Children Services are important partners in this collaborative effort to provide quality services and supports to these children in their home community. This project is in keeping with the Ardmore tradition of developing service models to meet unmet needs in the service system.”See also FRONTIER INITIATIVE: Opening Doors for Individuals with Autism at
