Our mission is to provide quality and individualized treatment to children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) as well as other related disorders. By collaborating with the family, and working together as a team, we can build a better future for the child and family. We are dedicated to helping children reach their fullest potential and enabling them to live productive lives.
Futures Behavior Therapy Center provides Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy to children who are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders and other related disorders. ABA therapy early in life can increase the ability of the child to obtain language and expand their ability to learn. It can also reduce the future costs of special education and help families relieve stress. High structured environments can improve a child’s social, academic and self-help skills.
