Early Start Program
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 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.
