Highland Designs Autism Collaborative Center for The University of Scranton

The University of Scranton opened the first of five centers for children and adults on the autism spectrum throughout northeastern and central Pennsylvania.

Highland Associates was selected to convert a former doctor's office on Mulberry Street into the new home for the autism collaborative center of excellence.  The Centers of Excellence are funded by the AllOne Foundation which donated $6 million to the project in 2018. Children and adults on the autism spectrum can visit the centers for services.

The Jesuit University of Scranton will serve as the hub of five centers in the 13 county area formerly served by Blue Cross of NEPA, including Luzerne, Lackawanna and Wyoming. the other centers will include Misericordia University, the Friendship House, Wyoming Valley Children's Association and Geisinger Autism and Developmental Medicine Institute.

"This work is so crucial, so important for people who are dealing with ASD," said University President the Rev. Scott R. Pilarz, S.J..
