New Access Clinic Opening in Noblesville

Janine Shapiro, CCC-SLP, BCBA

A couple years ago, Ashley, Alysia and I realized that many children who attend the Fishers clinic travel from Noblesville.  Not long afterwards, the Fishers clinic approached full capacity, and the three of us commenced an intensive search for a Noblesville building to create more space in Fishers and reduce commute durations for our Noblesville and Anderson families.  

A Long Road with a Happy Ending

Finding a property that included even the basic items on our wish list proved more challenging than we expected.  At a minimum, we wanted a stand-alone structure with an abundance of natural light, space for a playground, and plentiful parking.  Finally, last summer, the most perfect building hit the market.  Walking into the space, we could easily imagine Access children playing and learning.  There were high ceilings inside and a gated area outside perfect for playscapes.  We were ecstatic.  Our excitement quickly turned to frustration after we submitted an offer and received no response in return.  Despite our best subsequent efforts, we never finalized a deal and the building disappeared from real estate listings.  

Following the acquisition, we petitioned Gregg Maggioli, the CEO of Lighthouse, for the opportunity to fulfill our plans for a center in Noblesville.  Not only did Lighthouse oblige, their team successfully negotiated the lease of 15755 North Point Blvd, the property that stole our hearts.  We are thrilled to officially announce that Access’ newest clinic will begin serving learners in the fall.  

Naturalistic Teaching in a Motivating Setting

The design of the Noblesville Access clinic will facilitate improved communication, our overarching therapy goal.  The curated materials and inspired spaces will promote language and learning.  Lighthouse is blowing wind in our sails; we have been encouraged to create another flagship Access clinic that draws upon our experience and creativity.  Unlike the Access clinics in Indianapolis and Fishers, this new clinic will feature therapeutic areas to enhance skill acquisition in older learners without intensive behavioral needs.  Most importantly, the new clinic will house talented practitioners trained in typical speech and language development in addition to behavior analysis.

Access Joins the Lighthouse Family

Alysia, Ashley and I started Access in 2013 to create therapy programs that fuse the best practices of speech-language pathology and behavior analysis. We envisioned thoughtfully curated spaces that would inspire communication and laughter. We wanted every learner who walked through our doors to feel understood and supported as they worked to realize their potential. … more »

The Power of Gestures

My most used tool in my practitioner’s toolbox is one that at first glance often seems foreign to both speech-language pathologists AND Board Certified Behavior Analysts.  Many of my therapy sessions feature a variety of hand gestures that either supplement or replace my verbal speech prompts with learners.  The gestures aren’t American Sign Language or … more »
