About Us

Executive director, Nicole Hilmes, MS CCC-SLP, BCBA leads a staff of experienced professionals who work directly with your child and family in our 6000 sq. foot center in Columbus, GA. Our facility includes a 3000 sq. foot play room, individual therapy rooms, a reading room, game room and a conference room where we provide training for parents and professionals.

We provide quality Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder or other developmental disabilities. Our goal is to provide interventions based on the principles of ABA to help these children learn how to independently communicate, play, and socially engage in their community.

At The Autism Learning Center your child will receive one on one instruction from trained specialists and weekly supervision from the executive director. Your child’s therapy program will be implemented in the natural environment and during intensive teaching trials at a desk. Parents and caregivers have the opportunity to receive training and observe their children during therapy sessions.
