At Unlocking Abilities Behavior and Learning we specialize in implementing Applied Behavioral Analysis (or ABA) to children with behavioral and developmental disorders, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder. We only utilize the most effective, evidence-based strategies and teaching methods that ABA has to offer. We are committed to providing the most compassionate, fun, and high quality of care that every child deserves.
We believe the best way to reach a child is to really know a child and meet them at their level. For us, that means working along side the people in the child's life, from parents, to teachers, to support professionals. It really does "take a village" and together we can empower kids and their villages with the knowledge and tools necessary to achieve milestones and unlock their true abilities.
