ribbon cut oboro

OWENSBORO, KY (03/27/2013) – Wednesday was a big day for Growing Minds Learning Center, as they officially opened their doors and made it known to Owensboro that they were ready for business.

Kristen Hudson founded Growing Minds Learning Center in 2009. They offer simple educational services; tutoring, dyslexia programs, and more, but it wasn’t until GMLC added their autism program that business really began to “boom.”

“As you know, autism is a big, hot topic because numbers are growing. When I started the business in 2009, they were estimating that one out of 10 had Autism. Now they are saying one out of 50 children have autism, so it’s on a rise,” Hudson told those gathered at the ribbon cutting concerning the autism program.

GMLC also serves children with a variety of disabilities, not just autism.

“We specialize in ABA (Applied behavior Analysis) therapy for clients with Autism and Asperger’s syndrome. We have also just started a preschool program which is still the intensity of an ABA program, but it is more like a 2-3:1 ratio and it only runs from ages 2-6. We have a preschool, but we also do a clinical side. The only difference is that clinical is one on one,” Program Director Kaylon Mims said.

GMLC starts with an evaluation program that involves a parent interview to figure out what the parents specifically desire for their children and to address and questions and concerns that they might have. They also will work in conjunction with local activity day center for the intellectually disabled, Puzzle Pieces, by subcontracting out Puzzle Pieces services. The Owensboro clinic will be run by lead therapist Caitlin Conley. Mims will supervise all five locations.
