Examples include but are not limited to toilet training, learner readiness, behavior management, communication training, reinforcement systems, executive functioning, independent living skills, and job skills. Clients are seen 1-10 hours per week based on the recommendation of the behavior analyst and there are no age restrictions.

After-school tutoring provides one-on-one individualized academic instruction to children ages 5 and up. Topics and target subject areas are provided by the parents based on the individual needs of each client.

Play Club provides social skills instruction to children 4-6 years old. Example skills worked on in this group include: attending to and interacting appropriately with peers, taking turns, imitating peers and pretend play skills.

typically-developing children may do so for FREE!
