Our approach to a school based ABA therapy program is all about positive reinforcement.
Positive reinforcement is the key. Using token boards, point cards, or whatever the child enjoys, we reinforce the correct response with something great so the behavior will happen again.
For example, if a child needs a break every 15-20 minutes, we can teach the child how to ask for a break when needed instead of forcing him to stay in the class and “stick it out.” Acting out in class and lunchtime behavior can also be addressed with an ABA program.
Using positive reinforcement, we’ve helped children become more productive, participatory, engaged and attentive in school.
Our goal is not for your child to become dependent on our services. Rather, we want to fade out our support and instill within them the ability to integrate more fully with their environment and learn the skills needed to live functional and happy lives.

We understand the challenges a classroom can present to a child with autism, ADHD or other behavioral challenges. Our therapists have both taught and worked in a classroom setting, are board certified and possess degrees in education and special education.
We have collaborated with a number of Cleveland schools to develop ABA therapy programs that are effective and easy to maintain. We can either come in and provide direct services or help support your school’s own ABA-based program.
Either way, we’re here to ensure your child gets the most out of school…and the school gets the most out of your child.
