WE EMBRACE NEURODIVERSITY AND PROMOTE INDIVIDUAL STRENGTHS.

Our approach to ABA therapy and all of our therapies is rooted in the belief that every child brings unique abilities and perspectives. We aim to nurture these strengths while addressing any challenges.

We create an environment of acceptance and understanding for each child that walks through our doors.

WE PARTNER WITH YOU FOR YOUR CHILD'S SUCCESS.

By collaborating closely with families, we create individualized therapeutic approaches that respect and integrate your deep understanding of your child's needs.

We value your input, keep you informed on your child's progress, and empower you with strategies to support your child outside of the clinic environment.

WE EMPOWER YOUR CHILD AND RESPECT THEIR VOICE.

We prioritize your child's autonomy, ensuring their voice is heard and incorporated into the therapy process to foster self-confidence and personal growth.

We'll work with your child's sensory sensitivities and respect their need for routine, and do not work towards "normalizing" behaviors at the expense of your child's creativity, individuality, and autonomy.

WE CREATE POSITIVE CHANGE THROUGH CONSENT AND COLLABORATION.

Our team is dedicated to creating an open, respectful environment where we meet your child where they are every day.

Therapy progresses cooperatively, always prioritizing your child's comfort and consent. Along the way, we make sure there is plenty of time for rest, play, and typical childhood activities.

WE BUILD SKILLS FOR LIFE IN A COMFORTABLE ENVIRONMENT.

We strive to help your child develop important life skills in a safe, supportive setting that respects their sensory needs and personal comfort.

Our therapists take time to build rapport with your child, customize their approach, and respect your child's sensory sensitivities and need for routine.

These private spaces allow your child to focus and make progress on language, communication, academics, cognitive skills, emotional regulation, and more.

GYMS & PLAY SPACES

Our gyms are some of our clients' most-loved spaces. They feature several kid-favorite activities, including swings, trapeze bars, slides, balls, and many other games.

SENSORY ROOMS

Our sensory rooms support clients in regulation and focus, tailored to your child's individual needs.

A sensory room is a safe environment designed to provide individuals the opportunity to decompress and cope with a variety of sensory experiences. Many of our kids find comfort in our sensory rooms while developing their visual, auditory, and tactile processing skills.

Success looks different for every child... But we bet we have a story that matches your child's needs.

Today, he can speak complete sentences, clearly state his needs, and navigate social interactions with his friends!
