Kristin Wier has firsthand knowledge of how underserved Southwest Michigan’s autism communities are. As a Berrien County native and longtime educator working at centers in east Michigan before returning home and founding Logan Center in South Bend. Kristin aims to open more centers to assist as many families as possible.
Last year, she opened up a unique learning center in Benton Harbor that goes against traditional learning center stereotypes with its bright colors and modern design – it is also Southwestern Michigan’s only non-profit autism learning center where kids may receive up to 35 hours per week of therapy treatment depending on their individual needs.
Last September, LOGAN Autism Learning Centers unveiled another autism learning center in Logansport, Indiana, which will offer similar services for children up to age 12. This marks their fourth location since 2016; their organization hopes to expand further.
LOGAN Community Resources, Inc., a non-profit autism service provider in southwest Michigan, is celebrating ten years of serving families during National Autism Acceptance Month at one of three Michigan locations they operate from: Benton Harbor’s LOGAN Autism Learning Center is among them.
LOGAN started in a basement in St. Joe but quickly outgrew that space as its business expanded rapidly. Moving to its current location in Benton Harbor in September 2016 allowed it to become the first non-profit autism learning center built in southwest Michigan, serving clients from throughout its service area. Our community continues flourishing, and LOGAN looks forward to our collective future!
LOGAN Autism Learning Center in Logansport will officially open for business on September 1, 2018. This location will offer services to Berrien, Cass, and Van Buren counties of Michigan as part of the LOGAN Autism Services network, with tailored programs specifically for families in these counties.

LOGAN’s Speech-Language Pathologists will offer speech and language therapy to children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) at home, in center-based therapy sessions, or within their community. Therapists must adhere to LOGAN policies and procedures, provide monthly statistics in a timely fashion, respect cultural diversity and confidentiality of persons served, and serve as advocates for clients they treat while protecting human rights at all times.
