The open house will begin with a Ribbon Cutting ceremony at 3pm with Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno.
Founded in 2002 and headquartered in Worcester, BCI has grown to become the go-to provider of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services to children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders throughout Massachusetts.
BCI’s Open House will feature tours of their new Springfield center and will enable families and the business community to learn more about BCI’s clinical services.

D., and Regional Director Britney Catron, M.A., BCBA, LABA, along with Marcy Schulz, M.A., BCBA, LABA, Assistant Director of Early Intervention ABA Services, and their team of Board-Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs).
Light refreshments will be served and the general public is welcome to attend.
BCI relocated from a temporary office to a new 7,200 square foot center at Carando Drive in early January. BCI is currently providing Early Intervention services to 75 families throughout greater Springfield. Their Early Intervention services are designed to assist infants and toddlers (birth to age three) in making significant strides in their development. These services are targeted, evidence-based, tailored to their needs, and usually provided in the home.
Expanded ABA Services for Ages 3+
The new Springfield center enables BCI to expand their services to provide center-based, insurance-funded ABA services for children over age three. Center-based services include an Intensive Day Program for preschool-age children, as well as an After-School Program and a Saturday Social Skills group for school-age children. BCI now has five classrooms, as well as a main area, gym and outdoor play yard, providing them with the capacity to serve 30 to 45 children per session in their new onsite program.
“We are very excited about our new space and the launch of our insurance funded, center-based ABA programs for children age three and older. It enables continuity of services for our families receiving Early Intervention and home-based services from BCI,” said Catron.
BCI is a partner agency that receives Early Intervention referrals from the Department of Public Health for children under age three with a diagnosis Autism Spectrum Disorder.
