Applied Behaviour Analysis services for individuals with autism, developmental delays & disorders. Comprehensive ABA, Focused ABA, Consultative ABA services, Tutoring, School Readiness Programs, School Transition and Support, Social and Play Groups, Parent Training, Psychological Services, Speech and Language and Occupational Therapy Services.

We are founded on the principle that no one should be denied the opportunity to reach their full potential. Our ABA programming is data driven and we use evidence-based methods. Our goal is for each child to reach their full potential.

When your child enters our ABA program, they receive a comprehensive skill-based assessment and a customized plan designed to enhance their language development, communication, social and play skills, adaptive skills, and reduce challenging behaviours.

We use Portia ABA Clinic Software for our Program Development, Data Collection and Reporting. The use of technology in our practice increases visibility into the child’s progress, allows for timely changes and provides more hands-on time.
