How We Can Help

Applied Behavior Analysis
(ABA) Therapy

ABA is a data-driven scientific approach to teaching communication, motor, social skills, playskills and skills of everyday living. By understanding your child’s behaviors and motivations, we can encourage skill development through a play based approach that makes learning fun!

Our approach to ABA is all about enhancing your child’s strengths and natural abilities, and teaching them the skills they need to reach their full potential as they develop. Every child is unique, which is why your ABA program at Ascend is all about meeting your child where they are and helping to gain independence to build a foundation for a successful future.

Inside the walls of the Center, your child will find the tools they need to thrive – individualized treatment plans, a sensory-rich environment, and a nurturing atmosphere where every step forward is a cause for celebration.

But our Center is more than just a building; it’s a haven where hope is nurtured, where families find support, and where the journey towards independence begins. Our Center is also a hub of activity – we will host workshops and community events that foster understanding, compassion, and inclusivity, and we’ll provide support groups and continued training for families.
