In Oklahoma, and nationally, there is a lack of highly trained early childhood autism educators. In response, Jeffrey & Theresa McDougall privately funded the growth of Special Care, Inc.’s Autism Clinic in Oklahoma City. The $100,000 gift allowed Special Care to provide free behavior therapy to the children who are on the autism spectrum over a multi-year period. It also covers the cost of a behavior therapist and allowed the therapist to receive additional training including an invitation only to the Carbone Clinic in New Jersey. Special Care was able to design the clinic with a specific approach in mind and it provides equipment and materials to best serve the students.
