More About Us!

We offer ABA Therapy and Flex Learning Programs for children with Autism and unique learning needs.  We focus on teaching language, social skills, self regulation skills, and reducing the need for intensive support.  It is our goal that each child become a well-rounded flexible thinker.  We offer a fun, child-centered, progressive approach to therapy.   We create programs and environments that allow each learner's individuality to shine!  Our services include family support and training to implement strategies with your child at home and in the community.  We are always excited to help families incorporate the principles of behavior in their daily lives.  We help families incorporate mindfulness and intent as a powerful parenting tool!
