Our mission is to help families design and implement effective ABA programs.
We enjoy getting in the natural environment and finding out which method would be most effective and seeing noticeable changes. Most parents report seeing noticeable changes within the first few months.
Utilizing an interactive approach, we create a safe environment to learn with the child with autism and caregivers necessary for development of goals, healthy boundaries, and empowerment of the client for change. Directly building on strengths and modeling new behavior offers the child with autism the opportunity to achieve milestones leading to increased self-esteem and more satisfying relationships. We believe understanding your child with autism’s challenges and roadblocks open the door to new attitudes as well as interest in changing behaviors.
