With autism on the rise, more and more families find themselves facing the disability head on. Our organization offers the most effective treatment demonstrated through research for autism, Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) through a comprehensive individualized treatment program offering in-home, clinic, and community direct therapy provided by Registered Behavior Technicians (RBT) under close supervision of Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA). Communication and Social Skills training are addressed in collaborative sessions with Licensed Speech Pathologists and Occupational Therapists.
