Welcome to the Stables

The Stables Autism Program helps individuals gain self-awareness, acceptance, inner-strength, and life strategies to live a more independent life. Our evidence-based clinical therapies focus on skill-building in four primary categories:

  • Goal setting
  • Executive functioning skills
  • Emotion regulation skills
  • Social skills

Our multidisciplinary treatment team helps each person set and achieve their individual goals at their own pace. 

Set in the Great Smoky Mountains, our non-institutional setting enables participants to comfortably explore the vast possibilities that an independent life can have for people on the autism spectrum.

    We’re here to help you.

    Why We’re Different

    The Pasadena Villa Psychiatric Treatment Network has a 20-year history of effectively treating individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder, and The Stables Autism Program is a culmination of that evidence-based treatment. We use a natural environment to engage individuals in evidence-based activities and strategies, in conjunction with Pasadena Villa’s Social Integration Model™, that allows for an improvement in social functioning. By adopting this model as part of our programming, individuals can develop self-sufficiency, autonomy, enhanced relationships, and communication skills as they identify their strengths and find new opportunities for growth. The Stables Autism Program fills the treatment gap as it relates to autism care, by providing that link to those on the spectrum to live independently in the community.
