An in-home consultation is an opportunity to meet with a clinician in your home for approximately an hour to learn how the services provided by Comprehensive Early Autism Services (CEAS) can help your child.
Comprehensive Early Autism Services (CEAS) is a behavioral consulting firm that provides intensive, individualized home-based ABA therapy (Applied Behavior Analysis) for children with autism and their families living in the Chicagoland area. It is the mission of CEAS to see each child that we work with reach their full potential in every area of development.
CEAS prides itself on having the expertise that comes from years of direct experience. Dr. Smagner has over a decade of experience developing and implementing effective, high-quality ABA programs. Our programs draw on this expertise, while also relying on the ever growing body of research surrounding effective autism treatment.

After almost a year of state early intervention services my son seemed to be getting worse. When the therapists at CEAS came to evaluate him I almost laughed at the things tried to get him to do because I felt they were so beyond his level. Within a couple of months he was doing most of them. By 5 months he was looking me in the eye and calling me mama. His speech therapist came back after 5 months to evaluate him and was shocked at his progress. She said he was a different kid and we agree. For the first time since he was diagnosed we have hope that things will get better for him.
One quality that I really appreciate about Dr. Smagner and his team is their optimism about what my daughter can do and learn. I’m ashamed to admit that they had more confidence in my daughter’s abilities than I did. Sometimes I doubted whether she was ready to learn certain concepts or skills. Invariably, I would be proved wrong. That’s not to say that some things didn’t take a long time to learn. But the team challenged her in ways I never would have, and she has surprised me every time.
A lot of what makes CEAS distinctive is in their years of experience. They create cohesive, highly skilled teams, from the program manager down to the line therapists. While they have an established curriculum, they also maintain flexibility based on the child’s strengths, as well as specific family needs. They include the parents in decisions and team meetings according to the parents’ comfort level. I really appreciate the collaborative nature of the parent/therapist relationship they strive to maintain.
Praises to Comprehensive Early Autism Services!!! Our son receives 1:1 therapy five days a week with a team of therapists. The changes we have seen in six months are remarkable!!! He now refers to me as mommy or mom ( I could cry right now), he points at objects and tells us to ‘look’, he recognizes and says the names of animals, people (policeman, fireman,…), he will take our face and turn it to his to make sure we understand what he is attempting to say. These are all things he could not do just six months ago.
