What is Applied Behavior Analysis?
ABA is the science of applying focused and data-driven techniques to the principals of learning, to help change behavior. ABA can improve functioning across all areas of child development and teach invaluable life-skills like speech, cooperation, taking turns, making friends, motor skills, hygiene, personal safety and more. ABA is the only treatment for ASD that has been designated as medically necessary and it is increasingly becoming an accessible option for families.

How will my schedule work?
Your schedule will be created by matching your availability to the needs of our patients. Many of our patients are school-aged children, so most of our needs are in the afternoons, weekends, and all day Friday. We ask that you meet our minimum availability requirement of M-F from 3pm – 7pm. If you are able to provide more availability, we may be able to schedule you more.
