Community-Based ABA Therapy


Our community-based applied behavior analysis (ABA  therapy) focuses on providing support to a child with autism spectrum disorder in a school setting (community based setting such as daycares, private schools, camp). The therapist helps with the day to day social interactions commonly found in community settings. Additionally, the assigned ABA therapist provides behavioral interventions when necessary within the classroom(structured) settings. Through our school(community based ABA) shadow, your child will gain independence and confidence to help make the school(natural environment) experiences more fulfilling.

We provide Community-Based ABA services in and around Danbury, Wilton, Stamford and Madison, Connecticut; Pikesville, Marriottsville and Westminster, Maryland; and Mount Pleasant, South Carolina

Other ABA Services We Provide

In-Home ABA

Our in-home ABA therapy services provide support to children with autism that may be exhibiting poor behaviors in the home or may have a hard time adapting in unfamiliar surroundings. Home-based ABA provides parents an opportunity to receive more effective training to help minimize behaviors that are present in the home. Our in-home ABA therapists work under the supervision of a BCBA (board certified behavior analyst) to ensure your child’s ABA program is effective for their needs.

Clinic-Based ABA

Clinic-based therapy allows our therapists to mimic many aspects of a regular school environment. This includes group activities, following routines, sharing and building relationships with peers, time away from parents, and staying focused in a noisy environment. We want to help your child live a more successful life by developing behavioral and social skills that will benefit them for future years to come.
