Testimonial video is from former client and was unsolicited.

The Place’s award-winning and accredited program provides individualized applied behavior analysis (ABA) services to children ages 2-6. Our model is unique in that ABA therapy is provided in a full day (8am-4:30pm) school-like setting. Throughout the day, there are several activities which mimic a traditional school setting such as circle time, music, arts and crafts, group snacks and lunch, and a variety of other activities to promote socialization with peers. Each child has a dedicated and qualified 1:1 therapist who will specialize in helping children meet critical milestones in communication, social, and behavioral domains.

Our approach to applied behavior analysis (ABA) is based in science and delivered with compassion by qualified therapists (RBTs) and Board-Certified Behavior Analysts.
