Trauma Informed ABA

Applied Behavior Analysis is one of the most widely accepted and researched therapy for children diagnosed with Autism. However, we acknowledge some of the troubling history of our field. We aim to provide ABA therapy that utilizes the principles of behaviorism while ensuring that the individuals we serve are treated with dignity, respect, and compassion. Our founders are clinicians who are trained in trauma-informed care that uses a biopsychosocial approach. This means recognizing past and present environmental, physiological, psychological, spiritual, cultural, and other components that contribute to a person's quality of life. We collaborate with our clients, their family members, and other professionals to form a trusted team in order to provide person-centered care.
