Oxford Recovery Center, which opened a new, state-of-the-art facility at 7030 Whitmore Lake Road in Brighton this summer, has openings in its center-based applied behavior analysis (ABA) program for children with autism.

ORC also announced its new Autism Recovery Thru Synergy (ARTS) program in April of this year. This unique program looks at the root causes of the child’s symptoms and employs a synergistic approach for recovering autism.

ORC’s unique ABA program focuses on practical and social skills, and is typically covered by insurance.

“It’s great that a child may know their colors, but it’s more important that a child can feed themselves or go to the bathroom independently,” said Casey Diskin ABA Director at ORC. “We learn about the individual child, their family and community and work to improve the skills that will help the child succeed in their community”.

Founded in 2008, Oxford Recovery Center is an innovative therapy organization that promotes healing through a variety of research-based therapies tailored to individual needs. While traditional therapies limit people to living with their condition, Oxford’s therapies promote healing and recovery. Oxford offers a variety of programs that strive to create a lifestyle of wellness, improved health and quality of life.

Designed for all age levels, therapies include: hyperbaric oxygen therapy, neuro physical therapy, neurofeedback, applied behavior analysis, creative arts therapy, nutritional coaching and wellness, and weight loss. Oxford’s therapies can assist recovery from a variety of conditions, including ADD / ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, depression, multiple sclerosis, sports injury, stroke, traumatic brain injury, and macular degeneration.

Casey Diskin Named Director of Autism Recovery Thru Synergy (ARTS) Program at ORC

Casey Diskin

Casey Diskin has worked with children with disabilities since 2000.  Recognized for her outstanding leadership, Diskin was named the Director of the Autism Recovery Thru Synergy (ARTS) program, which upholds a unique, multi-faceted therapy approach.

Since completing her undergraduate degree at Wayne State University in 2004, Casey Diskin has worked with many children suffering from a variety of disabilities.   She graduated from Macquarie University in Sydney Australia with her Masters in Psychology.  Then, she launched a career geared towards providing every child with disabilities the opportunity to succeed and grow.

Casey Diskin attributes her unique approach  to the training she received while studying at Macquarie University. After studying in Australia, she returned to the United States in 2013 where she met and married her husband, and she gave birth to her first son just last year. She’s lent her education and talent to the Oxford Recovery Center most recently, helping launch its Autism Recovery Thru Synergy in April of last year.

“Our unique approach to autism has been a huge success with families across the state,” says Casey Diskin. “We hear stories all the time of happier parents, children who have developed new friendships, siblings playing together more, children performing better in school, and more successfully integrating into their communities.”

“When she joined our team a year ago, we could tell like us, she had a different vision for children.” “She saw them overcoming their challenges and becoming more involved in their communities,” said a representative from ORC. “We knew she was the perfect fit for the ORC team. Joined with her colleagues, the team worked together child by child to develop a program that would impact them most.”

Casey Diskin has been referred to by her peers as a natural leader and a visionary. She helped develop unique processes at ORC that ensure each child receives the appropriate services to achieve the best possible outcomes. At the facility, she created specialized programs that have already been implemented and new programs that are soon to be launched there as well.

“When I started, I wasn’t even sure I knew what Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy was. Now I see it and how it works to help children with autism,” says Casey Diskin. “Our ARTS team is pretty amazing. While recovery looks different for every client, it does mean that everyone is improving in their individual skills, health, and quality of life. This is what ARTS does for its clients and their families. I want us to do even more for a bigger population. We see so many older kids and young adults come to us. They need our services too,” she continued.

Casey assumed the director’s role overseeing ORC’s Autism Recovery Thru Synergy program in February this year.

Meet Casey Diskin

Casey Diskin began working with children with disabilities while pursuing  an undergraduate degree at Wayne State University. From there, her passion for working with children on the autism spectrum grew. She  created and implemented treatment plans for children and young adults at the Friendship Circle in West Bloomfield Michigan, and started her own company, Compass Michigan, to advocate for children in public schools.

Now she is leading our autism program and working to implement our synergistic approach to make a difference in each child that comes to us.

At Oxford Recovery Center,  Casey Diskin runs our unique ABA program that  focuses on teaching skills that improve the quality of a child’s life. With our naturalistic teaching approach, children get both one-on-one attention with our outstanding Behavioral Technicians and gather for group activities such as gym, creative arts, music, and play. The children benefit from constant individual attention (and get assistance, as needed) while also learning how to play with peers and follow instructions in a group setting.

Casey loves live music, good food, and good company. She is married to Joshua and is the mother to Asa and Evy. (She’d love to show you a few photos of her adorable son and baby girl.)

Casey Diskin Encourages Novel Therapies

Casey Diskin has proven her dedication to improving the lives of children with disabilities and their families, having created many resources for each during her career. She employs a variety of state-of-the-art therapies that help children grow and hosts several group therapy sessions that build camaraderie among families in her community.

Today, she serves in a director's position at a Michigan-based recovery center where she oversees an autism recovery program utilizing applied behavior analysis, speech therapy, occupational therapy and hyperbaric oxygen therapy, a recent breakthrough for the condition.

"Our unique approach to autism has been a huge success with families across the state," says Casey Diskin. "We hear stories all the time of happier parents, children who have developed

new friendships, siblings playing together more, children performing better in school, and more successfully integrating into their communities."

Casey Diskin lends much of her success to her focus on functional life skills through naturalistic teaching. She attributes this approach to therapy to the training she received while studying at Macquarie University. In addition, she is one of the pioneers of hyperbaric oxygen therapy to treat conditions like autism.

"When I started, I wasn't even sure I knew what hyperbaric oxygen therapy was. Now I see it and how it works to help children with autism," says Casey Diskin. "Our team is pretty amazing.

While recovery looks different for every client, it does mean that everyone is improving in their individual skills, health, and quality of life. This is what our synergy program does for its clients

and their families. I want us to do even more for a bigger population. We see so many older kids and young adults come to us. They need our services too," she concluded.

Once patients with neurological conditions began seeing the great results Casey Diskin could accomplish through hyperbaric oxygen therapy, parents with children on the autism spectrum

began asking her to perform the same therapy for their kids.

"Medically, there is evidence that individuals with autism have inflammation in the brain," says Casey Diskin. "HBOT medically addresses the issue by reducing the inflammation. Our novel program is a multi-therapy approach to treating autism. We believe in creating a synergistic approach that allows us to treat the medical issues of our clients while simultaneously teaching functional socially significant life skills."
