The Scott Center for Autism Treatment was founded in 2009 by Ed and Cheryl Scott and former U.S. Senator Dave Weldon, on the campus of Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne, Florida.
Operating as an integrated component of Florida Tech’s College of Psychology and School of Behavior Analysis, the center pursues a three-fold mission of clinical services, research and training.
The clinic is dedicated to improving the quality of life of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and related disabilities in Central Florida.
The impetus to open a comprehensive autism treatment and research center came from Edward and Cheryl Scott’s own experiences with their son, Reese.

Reese Scott was diagnosed with autism early in life; however, at that time there was little information on how one could treat this condition.
Through personal persistence and the help of his parents, teachers and therapists, Reece was able to overcome many of the challenges of autism. This firsthand knowledge of the frustrations of finding effective therapy for a child with autism motivated the Scotts to work closely with former U.S Senator Dave Weldon and Florida Tech to create The Scott Center for Autism Treatment.
Because of the generosity of our founders and our community, parents and children from all walks of life start their day at the The Scott Center, receiving the most advanced, evidence-based treatments available.
They dedicate every day to fulfill the Scotts’ vision of improving the lives of children and families affected by autism. Through treatment, research and training, there is hope for a brighter future.
All funds raised benefit The Scott Center for Autism Treatment at Florida Tech.
