Our Mission

The Center for Autism, Assertiveness & Social Skills  (CAASS) exists to provide world-class clinical services to help adolescents, teens and adults with Autism/Asperger’s personality features meet life’s challenges.  CAASS was founded by clinical counselor Ken Smith with a commitment to helping those who need help with Autism/Asperger’s, especially in 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.

Note about Provider availability:

Due to to the extreme demand of our services, only a few of our providers are able to accept new clients.

Ken S. (our founder) is full in most locations (including teletherapy), until early 2022 (except those client who can/wish to be seen in person in Homeworth, Ohio). Ken does not have a waiting list and encourages potential clients to contact CAASS LTD again in JAN 2021 to see if he can accept new clients. Ken’s colleagues (Casey S., etc) may be able to see new clients in a much shorter time. If you request to be seen by Ken, you will be contacted by Casey S. to see if she would be a good provider for you. Ken is sad that he can not see everyone, but hopes his colleagues can be of help to all.
