On-Going Therapeutic Services


Program Creation:

We create a comprehensive program to teach clients new skills and reduce problem behavior and increase effective behaviors to get their needs met. This includes a behavior plan and usually between 10-20 individual goals for skill acquisition. The program is created after a parent interview and student observation.

ABA Therapy:

We provide in-home ABA therapy by well-trained and educated ABA therapists. These therapists implement the program that is created by the Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). Students typically receive services 3-5 days a week and each session is usually 2.5-3 hours.


ABA therapists are supervised frequently by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). The BCBA also uses this time to observe the child, build a relationship with him/her, and problem solve any goals that are making slow progress.

Team Meetings:

We hold quarterly 1-2 hour team meeting for most clients to review progress, troubleshoot behavior, and maintain an open dialogue with families. We encourage the clients to attend these meetings when possible.

Facilitated Playdates:

We setup, attend, and coach clients during playdates with neurotypical peers to help the client practice skills being taught in sessions.

Parent Groups:

This is a safe place to express concerns and triumphs. It is a way to meet with other parents as well.
