At Blue Balloon, we provide a comprehensive system of services to address a broad spectrum of needs. We collaborate with the child’s family, school, social worker, and medical provider to design a program that is tailored for success. We are committed to empowering and inspiring our children to reach their personal best
Our center provides a nurturing environment for young learners to grow and practice new skills. In our pre-school like setting, each child receives one-on-one with a trained behavior technician overseen by a licensed BCBA. Typically, services occur for 20 to 40 hours per week depending on your child’s specific needs. Individual strengths and needs are identified across all developmental areas including communication, cognition, life skills, social and play skills. Occupational, Speech or Physical Therapy can be woven into your child’s program, as necessary. We offer full day and half day sessions in a warm and nurturing environment and strive to provide an interactive and fun learning environment for both your child and our staff.
Our approach to ABA is a firm belief that children learn most in a fun, natural environment, rather at a traditional table and chair setting. Come visit our space featuring spacious classrooms, a sensory gym, a soft gym and indoor playground, as well as our one-on-one therapy rooms for OT and speech. Our eat-in-kitchen is clean roomy and comfortable.
Our partnership with the parents is paramount to our kiddo’s success. With that in mind we have parent consultation rooms, conference rooms, and a computer center.
Our parent partnership equals success!
Does your child need to work on skill enhancement after school? Blue Balloon offers services in our center in both one to one and group settings.

Parents/caregivers and family members have a crucial
role in supporting a child with autism. Blue Balloon provides instructional sessions for family members in our centers,
which focus on teaching parents/caregivers how to utilize
ABA strategies to increase skills and decrease problem
behavior. In addition, our parent/caregiver support groups,
also give family members an opportunity to interact and
connect with other families facing similar challenges.
The first step is determining if an autism spectrum diagnosis (ASD) is appropriate. Our Psychologists can help make that determination that will provide some guidance on the way forward
We provide ABA services in a caring, nurturing manner that stimulates and motivates children to embrace learning by addressing their individual needs in the most compassionate manner.
Social skills groups are developed with children of similar age, developmental level, and cognitive ability to develop interpersonal skills needed for life, let out energy and have fun.
Our holistic approach engages the entire family by supporting you with education and training to understand your child’s current skills and how you can work with your child in reaching their best therapeutic outcomes.
