Are parents allowed to participate in sessions?
Parents are highly encouraged to take part on the sessions. One of the main foundations of ABA therapy is the parent training. This is very important because the target behaviors and target goals are being reinforced at home, after or before the therapy session took place. ABA is most effective when the work is collective between the parents, the lead analyst, and the therapist.

Transportation is offered to children attending the centers and can be from home, the school, or anywhere in the community to the center or vice versa. Just communicate with the front office if you are interested in the service. Parents do not have to pay for the transportation.

The therapies are provided by a Board Certified technician which are always working under the supervision of a lead analyst. The advantage of the center is that a lead analyst is always available to assist the technicians.
