The Wisconsin Early Autism Project, Inc., is a program and clinic for the treatment of children with autism based on the work of Dr. Ivar Lovaas, the pioneer of an intensive behavioral approach with proven best outcomes.
WEAP provides ongoing therapeutic treatment through its local clinics for families in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Malaysia, and Vancouver as well as training workshops with follow-up supervision for families in other parts of the United States and the world.
WEAP is Officially Approved by Dr. Lovaas
The Wisconsin Early Autism Project is a Replication Site actively collaborating with Dr. Lovaas' research through the National Institute of Mental Health. Children treated by WEAP have shown success rates essentially the same as those of Dr. Lovaas. We are proud to be the first program to reach this goal!
