DUBUQUE - A new center in Dubuque aims to improve the lives of people living with Autism.
Mercy Medical Center will soon add an Autism Clinic inside the Professional Arts Building. Administrators say this is the first of its kind in the Dubuque area.
Treatment will focus on speech and occupational therapy. Patients will also work on sensory and behavioral development.
"They will be able to walk away from that first session. The first conference knowing they are going to take the first step. I am going to call this person and set this up. I am going to come back and start some therapy and treatment," said Laura Keehner, Mercy Medical Center.
The center is now accepting patients. Contact Mercy Medical Center in Dubuque for more information.
