Important Info

Due to concerns over the COVID-19, CAASS would like to remind clients of their 3 options to get services:

  1. In person*
  2. Over the phone (Telephonic counseling)
  3. Over HIPPA compliant video conferencing at (Etherapy)

Many insurance companies are allowing telephonic and Etherapy sessions in the current situation. However, as always with insurance, call and make sure they will cover Telephonic or Etherapy with your CAASS provider. Some insurances might say that they cover telephonic or Etherapy, but only with their specified provider, so make sure to get specific confirmation about Telephonic and Etherapy services. When you call ask for a reference number and keep it in case of any problems with insurance about this in the future.

*Ken will offer in person unless he (Ken) is sick, quarantined or forbidden by law. If you have another provider, check with them directly to see what they are offering.

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.
