Fraser is Minnesota’s largest and most experienced provider of autism services. The new Woodbury location is designed to support a wide range of services, offering families a convenient location for comprehensive evaluations, diagnostic and treatment services; autism and mental health day treatment; applied behavioral analysis; and speech, occupational and physical therapies.
