Early Start Program

Our Mission

 

The purpose of the Early Start Program is to provide ABA services in an age-appropriate environment that will promote independence, create routines that allow for increased learning opportunities as well as develop prosocial behaviors and generalize skills to the home environment.

Our Philosophy

 

Our goal is to see our clients grow into happy, contributing members

of society. We believe that parents and families lay the foundation for

their child’s success, and it is primarily the family’s responsibility to

shape their children into the best version of themselves they can be.

 

We exist to support families in this endeavor by teaching them behavior analytic strategies and addressing individualized needs for each child and family. Combining ABA, parent training, and continuity across environments is foundational for developing a healthy parent/child balance in the home and community.
