Our Mission

The Center for Autism, Assertiveness & Social Skills  (CAASS) exists to provide world-class clinical services to help teens  (ages 12+) and adults with Autism/Asperger’s personality features meet life’s challenges.  While there are services for children and teens in central  Ohio with Autism, most services end after people become adults. CAASS was founded by clinical counselor Ken Smith with a commitment to helping those who need help with Autism/Asperger’s in late teens and adulthood.

CAASS also helps anyone who needs help overcoming social phobia/anxiety or in need of learning how to respect their rights and those of others assertively.
