Contemporary treatment for autism spectrum disorder (ASD)—personalized for your family, delivered by your local provider, and supported by our collective team of experts
How We Help
Raising a child with autism is not a one-person job. We want you to know we’re here for you—and have been here for families for more than 20 years.
Our passionate and dedicated team understands that no two cases of autism are the same. That’s why we use science and data to deliver contemporary applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy, tailored exclusively to your child’s unique needs, behavior, and personality.
Our services can help your child:
Build language and communication skills
Develop social and play skills, while forming friendships
Decrease tantrums, meltdowns, eating selectivity, and other behaviors
Prepare for and succeed in school
Mostly, what our services do: foster your child’s confidence and resiliency—and empower them to lead a happy, fulfilling life.

What You Can Expect
Not all ABA providers are created equally. At AST, we tailor treatment to your child’s individual needs, using contemporary ABA therapy, combined with clinical insights and best practices refined over two decades of serving the autism community. This highly personalized, client-centered model of care differs from other providers, who take a more systematic, therapist-directed approach.
Since each child responds differently to a treatment setting, we can work with your child:
In your home
In the community
At one of our Learning Centers
In partnership with a school
The best part? Our services work.
- In the last 30 days, 90 percent of our clients have made meaningful progress.
- One-third have made so much progress in the first 18 months of treatment, we were able to recommend less intensive services going forward.
