About the Summit Health & Wellness Center

At Summit Health & Wellness Center, our professional staff is committed to looking beyond just a diagnosis. Our goal is to deliver a holistic patient-centered plan of care for children and young adults with autism and related diagnoses in need of mental health and aba services.

People seeking services for individuals with autism spectrum disorder traditionally face barriers to care, a fractured healthcare system, and long wait times. Summit Health & Wellness is founded on the idea that the best care is delivered under one roof in a unified and integrated way.

We primarily serve individuals in the Greater Worcester County
