Since learning is greatly enriched when a foundation of trust and understanding has been established, the most important step of autism therapy is establishing a sense of safety and familiarity! Our welcoming clinic in Lancaster, PA reduces the tension associated with a traditional classroom. Our kind and gentle clinical staff set the pace for calm and low-stress autism behavioral services! Providing a space that promotes a sense of ease is our top priority because from this place of safety, the evidence-based principles of productive ABA therapy become even more effective.

ABA Therapy Can Help Your Child Achieve Their Greatest Potential

As we progress through autism therapy, our goal is to work towards personalized progression. Our autism center closely replicates real-life social situations and functional activities that children encounter outside of our ABA clinic. Of course, how that progression looks varies significantly from one child to the next. We ensure our ABA services are approached with patience and appropriately paced based on your child’s progress.

With our growth-oriented autism services, continuous behavior plan improvement is another key attribute of our autism behavioral services. Our experienced clinicians provide care that is consistently evaluated and adjusted as the goals and needs of your child evolve.

By remaining actively involved with you and your child, we can keep the therapy plans on the right track. At the same time, we consistently share relevant ideas to help you promote continued growth at home. While we may be known for our clinical ABA therapy in Lehigh Valley, PA, or in Lancaster, teaching our clients’ families how to remain proactively involved is a major component of our success in ABA therapy!
