Can you watch YouTube videos to learn Applied Behavior Analysis methods? Yes however, your child, you, and your family, may or may not benefit from the YouTube teachings.

Here's why: ABA therapy is 100% of the time customized for your child's needs, which are different than a different child's needs.

Our video-modeling of the methods that have been researched and proven to improve behavior, show the parent how to execute the techniques in their home, or other natural environment.


Our mission is not to replace behavior therapy for your child. Instead, our goal is to educate every parent and autistic child that these are the techniques you will be expected to learn when you do go to ABA Therapy anyways. You will be expected to use these techniques daily in your home, when you enter therapy, as a parent. The sooner you get started, the better your life and your child's life can become. Creating independence and a healthy mind is all about early intervention. The younger the child, the better the intervention is.
