Using contemporary ABA therapy to personalize treatment so your child with autism can thrive
Our passionate and dedicated team understands that no two cases of autism are the same. That’s why we use science and data to deliver the most progressive applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy, tailored exclusively to your child’s unique needs, behavior, and personality.
Our services can help your child:
Build language and communication skills
Develop social and play skills, while forming friendships
Decrease tantrums, meltdowns, eating fussiness, and other challenging behaviors
Prepare for and succeed in school
With more than 25 years of clinical research and experience, we tailor treatment to your child’s individual needs, using contemporary ABA therapy, combined with clinical insights and best practices refined over two decades of serving the autism community. This highly personalized, client-centered model of care differs from other providers, who take a more systematic, therapist-directed approach.
Since each child responds differently to a treatment setting, we can work with your child:
In your home
At one of our Learning Centers
In the community
In partnership with a school
But we’re also a team of data enthusiasts committed to clinical excellence—and to getting results for your child and family.
WEAP treats children in Wisconsin but also is part of LEARN Behavioral, a national organization made up of providers in autism treatment who specialize in delivering the highest form of personalized, evidence-based ABA therapy. Our more than 30 doctoral-level clinicians, 450 behavior analysts, and 3,700 behavior technicians make up a concentration of professionals unmatched by any other provider.
With WEAP and LEARN, we offer your child and family the familiarity and convenience of local treatment, with the advantages of a national organization at the forefront of autism treatment. Our local-national reach gives you distinct advantages.
We believe in what we do—and know we can help your child make progress every single day. And, while our treatment focuses on your child, our services extend to your whole family.
Our personalized programs reflect that every child with autism is unique, along with your family’s values and priorities.
We consider you a core part of your child’s treatment and partner with you throughout your entire journey, giving you the tools, training, and support you need.
We’re data enthusiasts who love the science of ABA and use it every day to guide and fine-tune your child’s treatment—and generate positive results.
