Applied Behavior Analysis Services
We believe in providing ABA services that include the parent(s) in the entire process. Our desire is to learn and know your goals for your child and how we can help you achieve them. This process starts with a full and in-depth assessment of your child and their needs. Together we will agree upon a plan and implement the recommendation of treatment to work with you and your child. By providing caring and top quality services, you and your child will gain tools to support them in achieving their goals.
What is it?
Clients with Higher Needs Can Expect
Clients with Lower Needs Can Expect
A program designed for Kindergarten through High School aged children as an alternative to public school. In our Learning Pods, clients will be placed in groups of 3 or 4 with peers of similar age and ability. Our goal is to create an ideal learning environment for your child that individualizes their educational needs through targeting academics, classroom skills or job skills. This allows your child to transition back into the classroom environment, or to support your child in finding a job. For those who are transitioning into adult services, we will work with you and your teen to find a placement that supports their goals.
These pods will focus on teaching skills to help increase the level of participation in daily living activities, support to self-advocate for their needs, increase opportunities for social interaction, increase independence, and to teach skills to increase the potential for further learning in life.
These pods will build on conversational language, complex play skills, social skills (building and maintaining friendships), collaborating and working with peers, self advocating, learning life long accommodations and modification at work or school, as well as individual modifications in their academic curriculum.
The Learning Pod program is an Autism and Jon Peterson Scholarship Program.
Other Services We Offer
Therapy in our clinic is provided by a a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) with oversight by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). Each program is individualized to your child and family's needs.
We make every effort to schedule your child's therapy when peers with similar skills and abilities are present in the clinic to provide the richest environment possible for your child's therapy session.
We assess your child with traditional assessments and then take it further by analyzing why the child may be struggling to maintain the skills or to target complex social skills most assessments don't cover.
We do a free 30-minute assessment with you and your child to determine whether we have a group that best fits your child's needs. We then recommend a placement for your child. If you are interested in this group, you can sign him or her up and we will see you in the next group!
Our groups are designed to be based on skills your child is working on within their age group. The groups are open to all kids with disabilities.
Groups are made up of fun activities to target important social skills. Your child will have individualized goals to work on during group.

Sex Education Training
The Elevatus Training is an evidenced based approach to increasing accessibility of sex and sexuality education for the I/DD population and to give providers, caregivers, and teachers the ability to respond promptly and competently to sex/sexuality related questions or situations. This training was created by Katherine McLaughlin M.Ed, CSE with direct input from the I/DD community and self-advocates across the country. This curriculum was designed with a focus on self advocacy and is inclusive of all gender and sexual identities while respecting the values of the individuals/families receiving the training.
