Behavior Based Learning

We specialize in working with children ages birth-elementary that are on the autism spectrum, developmentally delayed, and/or socially challenged. Principles of applied behavior analysis (ABA), as well as socially directed stories and supports, relationship development intervention (RDI), theory of mind (ToM), and cognitive-based therapy are incorporated to best address your child's educational, social, and overall developmental goals. Within natural environments, specific targets are "worked into" the daily lives of each child.
