Beyond the Label Autism Services to open a new clinic in Rushville

An open house in Rushville this weekend will celebrate the expansion of Beyond the Label (BTL) Autism Services.


Beyond the Label, a leading provider of specialized treatment for autism and developmental disabilities with a clinic in Shelbyville, is adding a new site with a clinic at 613 Conrad Harcourt Way in Rushville.


During an open house on Saturday BTL will have games, crafts, refreshments, and prizes.  Visitors can stop by any time between 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm to meet the BTL team and ask questions about ABA services.


Founder of BTL Melissa Poe , DBH, BCBA, says they've served some clients in Rush County.  This site will allow for more.



Families in Rush County with loved ones on the autism spectrum will now have much-needed access to quality Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services performed by a compassionate, caring staff. This new clinic will offer BTL’s patients a spacious, secure, and private environment for treatment. 



BTL has partnered with rural communities for nearly a decade to fill the service gap Rush County has faced without a primary ABA provider. ABA therapy aims to improve socially significant behaviors by usingscientifically based principles and procedures, helping patients thrive and reach their full potential.


Currently, BTL offers treatment and family support primarily in homes across Central and Southeastern Indiana, as well as a clinic-based model for families in or surrounding Shelbyville. A steadfast commitment to helping patients and their families develop the skills needed to thrive in a natural and lasting way has led to its continued success over the past nine years.


“I believe we are all called to do purposeful work in life,” added Poe. “Our true calling isn’t necessarily the work itself, though. It’sthe way these individuals with autism mold and shape us each day into kinder, gentler, more compassionate human beings. We are ecstatic to serve Rush County and help lead the way of learning together in rural Indiana.”
