The Carrie Brazer Center for Autism,
and Alternative Approaches, Inc, was founded in 1999
by Carrie Brazer, a Florida Certified, Special Education teacher.
Carrie began helping individual families of children with Autism
thirteen years ago as an Applied Behavior Analysis Specialist and Trainer
in her home and others. Her center now schools over 75 students weekly, who are afflicted with Autism and other
developmental delays. Her program consists of highly structured,
consistent, cognitive & community based instruction based solely
on the principles of positive reinforcement. She strives to teach
the family as well as the child each and every day.
She has also had extensive training in behavior
modification and Applied Behavior Analysis. She also hold's a Master's
Degree in Varying Exceptionalities from Florida
Carrie continues traveling the country researching and presenting
at seminars about the Biological treatments of Autism. She
has made it her life's mission to find Alternative Treatments
to heal the autistic child. She enjoys educating parents, teachers,
and other professionals on how to work with and apply new techniques
with the special needs child. She is also extremely active in fighting
the crusade to finding a cure for Autism and heightening community
awareness through her fundraising efforts with Autism Speaks.
Because Carrie Brazer believes
in a "team-family-centered" approach to healing,
the center will provide a vast amount of support for both
the child and the family. Our in-staff, licensed occupational
therapists, speech therapists and physical therapists will
cater to the individual needs of the child. Our on-site licensed
social workers will aid the family through psychotherapy and
bi-weekly support meetings as well as parent training classes.
Carrie strives to meet each and every
child's educational and behavioral goal. She will design an
individual program to meet the specific educational, developmental,
and emotional needs of each and every child and their family.
She has extensive experience in applying a variety of techniques
to aid each child diagnosed with Autism.
Professionals, pediatricians and neurologists within the
community will also host monthly workshops for parents to
learn all they can about the newest approaches to aid children
