Reinventing the Autism Therapy Experience

We created Soar to expand access to effective, compassionate autism therapy that places the child and family at the center.


At Soar, we deeply believe in the beauty, potential and strengths of all children with autism. We work as a coordinated team to deliver the best care for every child and build a foundation that sets children up to soar and thrive for the rest of their lives.

Soar Autism Center is an independent and locally owned Colorado organization. We offer autism therapy based on the Early Start Denver Model (ESDM), a play-based approach shown in high-quality research studies to improve outcomes for children with autism.

Soar’s therapeutic approach is based on relationships, play, and fun!

We serve clients aged 6 and younger and their families with a specific focus on children aged 18 months to 5 years. Soar accepts most insurance plans, including Medicaid.

Soar Autism Center is nothing like the old-school, behavior-focused ABA therapy that many autism treatment programs continue to offer.
