Mission Statement

Glenwood leads the state of Alabama in providing behavioral health care and educational services for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and severe emotional disturbances. Our services are provided in a least restrictive setting, through a continuum of care, with the highest respect for individuals and families served. In addition to direct care services, Glenwood provides consultation and training for mental health and educational professionals and promotes research in these specialized areas.

Glenwood seeks to become a nationally recognized provider of premier educational and therapeutic services for individuals with mental health needs. Through state-of-the-art training for staff, collaboration with nationally renowned clinicians, and linkages with academic health centers for clinical care and research, Glenwood assures the highest quality services to consumers and families in the state and region.

Description

The Outpatient Autism Clinic at Glenwood’s Huntsville office provides diagnostic services to children suspected of having an Autism Spectrum Disorder. The clinic offers timely responses to families seeking assessment and support from professionals specifically trained in the area of child & adolescent development and mental health.


Glenwood’s Journey Academy in Huntsville, Alabama, provides educational programs for adults with an Autism Spectrum Disorder or other behavioral health needs. Adults will participate in programs that introduce them to the functional skills that will help them move toward a more independent life. Programming focuses on the development of daily living, social, and vocational skills and encourages the exploration of recreational and leisure activities that foster self-determination and self-advocacy in order to meet the personal goals of each individual. As Glenwood approaches 40 years of providing the highest standard of treatment, education, and support to individuals and families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders and other behavioral health needs, we want to respond to these needs in the Huntsville area. The introduction of the Journey Academy into this community will allow those needs to be met in a positive, supportive, and rewarding environment. Skills Introduced • Vocational skill development • Social interaction skills • Recreation and leisure • Daily living skills • Community integration
