Short-Term Autism Treatment and Evaluation Program (STATE)
RiverValley’s STATE program is offered in a separate unit at the RVBH children’s hospital in Owensboro which offers inpatient care for children and adolescents diagnosed with autism. During their stay, clients are provided services based on Applied Behavior Analysis with the goal of assisting patients and families in stabilizing immediate crisis behaviors as well as reducing challenging behaviors that are preventing the child’s ability to safely remain in the community.
