ContemporaryABA Autism Services
Personalized Treatment to Nurture Your Child’s Potential
Raising a child with autism is not a one-person job. We want you to know we’re here for you.
Our passionate and dedicated team understands that no two children with autism are the same. That’s why we use science and data to deliver the most progressive applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy, tailored to the unique needs, behavior, and personality of your child, and the values of your family.
At Autism Spectrum Therapies (AST), we provide families with the information they need, the community they want, and the quality services they deserve.
How Can Our Services Help?
Our services help your child:
Build language and communication skills
Develop social and play skills, while forming friendships
Learn daily living and self-help skills
Increase flexibility and tolerance for new routines and experiences
Decrease behaviors that interfere with growth and learning
Prepare for and succeed in school
Mostly, what our services do: foster confidence and resiliency — and empower your child to lead a happy, fulfilling life.
First Off, We’re Your Partner.
But we’re also a team of data enthusiasts committed to clinical excellence — and to getting results for your child and family.
When your child is missing milestones and having trouble communicating, it’s hard to know where to turn. An autism diagnosis can be an important turning point in understanding your child’s world. It also can be overwhelming to figure out what to do next.
At AST, we’re with you every step of the way — from diagnosis through treatment.
Using diagnostic screening tools, we assess children for autism, and research has shown that early intervention can set them up for success.
Applied behavior analysis (ABA), considered the gold standard of treatment for autism by the American Academy of Pediatrics, teaches skills and behaviors essential for daily living. ABA has evolved significantly over the last several years. Our version of ABA, which we refer to as contemporary ABA, treats every child as unique and considers family and caregivers a core part of treatment.
AST has services close to home — and we’re also part of LEARN Behavioral, a collective group of ABA providers in autism treatment who specialize in delivering the highest form of personalized, evidence-based ABA therapy, tailored exclusively to the unique needs, interests, and personality of your child.
With AST and LEARN, we offer your child and family the familiarity and convenience of local treatment, with the advantages of a national organization at the forefront of autism treatment.
