Wednesday, April 19
4:30 to 6:30 p.m.

The address hasn’t changed, but the Center now occupies its own building, with plenty of room for growth and expansion of services. The renovated facility also includes a center-based Applied Behavior Analysis program for children and adolescents ages 8-18.
Come and see for yourself a center that opens up the world for those with autism!
Tours begin at 4:30 p.m., followed by a ribbon cutting at 5:30 p.m.
Growth from the start
The Sonya Ansari Center for Autism opened in 2008, providing a range of services and resources for families, educators and professionals and serving as the organizational hub for all of LOGAN Autism Services. It previously occupied a corner of LOGAN Center, the main building on the campus, so it hasn’t moved far.
LOGAN began offering the adolescent program in 2015, in the basement of Sunnyside Presbyterian Church in downtown South Bend. The program soon outgrew the space, prompting the move to a larger facility.
“We’re excited to have our resource services and adolescent services all in one building,” said Dan Ryan, Director of LOGAN Autism Services.
LOGAN also provides services for younger children at the Sonya Ansari Autism Learning Center in Granger.
“The adolescent program in South Bend provides the next step for those families,” said Joshua Diehl, Ph.D., Chief Strategy Officer for Autism Services. “One complements the other.”
