BAYADA Center for Autism Services Opens in Hawaii

BAYADA President and Founder Mark Baiada (4th from left) joined BAYADA staff for the grand opening of the new Center-Based Services Program serving individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities

Walk onto the second floor of the office building at 427 Ala Makani Street in Kahului, Maui and you’ll be greeted by more than 1,500 square feet filled with brightly colored floor mats, over-sized Legos, a trampoline, a teepee, bean bag chairs, crayons, puzzles, books, balls, and blocks.

At first glance, this warm, inviting space may seem like the back drop for a typical day care center, but upon closer look, you’ll discover it is so much more. It’s all part of the Maui Center-Based Services program developed by BAYADA Home Care, a non-profit organization that provides behavioral health services throughout Hawaii. The new center uses an evidence-based approach called applied behavior analysis (ABA) to treat individuals with autism and related learning or social disorders.
