Getting Started with ABA Therapy
Autism and Behavioral Spectrum has immediate space available for children for Applied Behavior Analysis therapy. Our full-time, clinic-based therapists are ready to help. As you may know, the sooner a child receives early intervention services, the greater the chance is that they’ll be able to be mainstreamed into a school environment.
Every child is unique, but a decade of research has established that early intensive behavioral intervention is the most effective therapy for children on the Autism Spectrum.
The enrollment steps are easy, and explained briefly below. If you have any questions, please contact us.
