Our diagnostic evaluations completed by a licensed psychologist are designed to be comprehensive, covering all aspects of your child’s development, behavior, and social skills. We use evidence-based diagnostic tools and techniques to ensure accurate and reliable diagnoses, working closely with families to provide individualized care and support.

We strive to provide families with a clear understanding of their child’s needs and the best course of action for treatment and care. We believe that early intervention is key to helping children with autism reach their full potential.

Get Started

Early Intervention Center

Our highly trained BCBAs and behavior technicians target communication, social skills and toilet training in our state-of-the-art centers in Owings Mills, Maryland and Beltsville, Maryland. Each child' program is highly customized to meet their unique needs.

We created a caring, school-like environment that will help children from 18 months through six years old develop critical functional skills. Our classrooms are designed with progressive programming which allows the children to graduate a classroom and transition to a more advanced program within our center. We collaborate with speech and occupational therapists in our early intervention centers to provide a holistic approach to your child's treatment.

Home- Based ABA Therapy

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a therapeutic approach rooted in the principles of behaviorism, designed to bring about positive and meaningful changes in behavior. ABA therapy is widely recognized for its effectiveness in treating individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) but is also applied in various other contexts.
