Our center offers a structured environment designed to give your child a safe learning space. It allows your child to work on goals in a more efficient way while creating an opportunity to generalize their skills in a different setting outside of home. We provide focused or comprehensive ABA programs within our center.
There are a variety of resources available at each of our centers. Given the nature of our centers, we’re able to provide more educational supplies than we could in a home setting. Some of these include tangible supplies, like educational materials, toys or reinforcers, while other resources include increased staff to assist in your child’s development.
School Readiness Skills
Center-based services also provide an opportunity for your child to practice following classroom routines. Having a physical setup similar to what your child can expect from a classroom can help prepare them for the transition to a traditional school environment.
Children often learn skills at home and have difficulty demonstrating the same learned skills in less familiar environments. Center-based services offer an ideal setting for children to learn and demonstrate skills in a less familiar environment with different materials and individuals.

In order for a child to make progress, family participation is a vital component. Your clinical team will recommend a level of participation they determine is necessary. We encourage parents to sit-in on sessions as often as they can. You are not required to participate in all ABA sessions, however, a caregiver over the age of 18 must be at home for the duration of each session. For clinic-based appointments, the child may be dropped off.
