After a family member is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, it’s often that families are being told to explore lots of therapy options for their child, especially Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), in addition to speech-language services, occupational therapy, and potentially even physical therapy. It’s hard to know where to begin in determining not only what services are most needed, but spotting quality services in the process.

Here at SBH, we want to be able to provide compassionate and ethical ABA services. We believe that behavioral health can be simple, effective, & life changing. We desire to ensure every child with Autism & other Developmental Disabilities has the opportunity to live a happy, purposeful, and fulfilling life. We believe intensive Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy will give them that chance. And we know that there are lots of great providers around, in other areas our locations do not serve – so we encourage you to use this list of questions to ask potential providers in your area when seeking services for your child to determine a provider that’s the best fit for your family.
