ELKHART — In just a month’s time, two autism treatment centers opened in Elkhart County, but it didn’t even make a dent in the gap for children in need of services.

With seven centers in the Michiana area, Lighthouse Autism Center finally opened its first building in Dunlap about a month ago. Goshen City Behavioral Health opened shortly after, a dream of owner Holli Perrin, who was a registered behavior technician.
