How We Help

Raising a child with autism is not a one-person job. We want you to know we’re here for you.

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

 
 
Mostly what our services can do: foster your child’s confidence and resiliency—and empower them to lead a happy, fulfilling life.

ABA is endorsed by:

What You Can Expect

Not all ABA providers are created equally.

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

Through telehealth

 
 
The best part? Our programs work.

  • In the last 30 days, 90 percent of our clients have made meaningful progress
  • One-third have made so much progress in the first 18 months of treatment, we were able to recommend less intensive services going forward
