We offer home and community-based training in applied behavior analysis (ABA) to families of children with autism, Down syndrome, and other developmental disabilities ages 1.5-6. ABA is the science of changing behavior and can be used to prevent and reduce problem behavior as well as to teach new skills including language, communication, social, play, academic, and self-help skills. Using the principles of ABA, we teach families how to improve their child’s communication skills, prevent and reduce problem behaviors, teach self-help skills (e.g., independent eating, dressing, grooming, and toileting), and develop in-home therapy programs. Our services are different in that we transfer control to families through teaching them the same effective, research-based strategies used by therapists so they can teach their children throughout daily routines. Our mission is to empower and educate exceptional families as they support their children in achieving maximum independence.
