Backed by hundreds of studies, Applied Behavior Analysis is considered the gold standard in improving lifelong outcomes in children with autism. It’s what we specialize in at Full Circle Pediatric Solutions.


Our ABA specialists can help your child achieve milestones

Through intensive, one-on-one ABA therapy, our BCBAs (Board Certified Behavior Analysts) and RBTs (Registered Behavior Technicians) will use your child’s individual motivation and interests to help them achieve milestones in the following areas:

What to expect: The steps in your ABA journey

1) Evaluation

We begin by meeting with you, the parents, to learn about your child’s history and your goals for them. We then use evidence-based ABA assessments to identify your child’s strengths, interests, and areas where we can help them build skills.

2) Individualized Treatment Plan

Our team will develop a customized ABA treatment plan that lays out how we’ll help your child reach their goals. This includes recommendations for the amount and frequency of intensive, one-on-one ABA therapy for your child, which can range from five to 30 hours per week.

Through close monitoring of your child’s progress and continuous analysis of trends and outcomes, we’ll continue to re-evaluate your child’s plan and further customize it to achieve maximum progress.

3) Therapy

Therapy involves teaching the skills outlined in your child’s treatment plan. Because younger children naturally learn and develop through play, our behavior team will tap into their interests to “play” with them to help them learn. With adolescents, we connect through their interests to help them build important skills.

No matter your child’s age, our goal is to work with what motivates them to keep them engaged, interested, and having fun while learning.

4) Generalizing Skills

An essential part of ABA is to help ensure that your child will internalize their new behaviors and skills to use in the real world. As your child acquires new skills, we collaborate with you, the parents, and/or the school team to give your child multiple opportunities to learn and practice them.

Our goal is to help your family and the school team provide effective, consistent, and reinforced learning opportunities outside therapy to help your child achieve the best long-term outcomes.

5) Ongoing Reassessment

Approximately every six months, and with your input, your child’s comprehensive ABA Treatment Plan will be re-assessed, reviewed, and modified to respond to your child’s ever-changing needs. ABA therapy does not end when a goal is met. Our behavior specialists will continue to support your child, revisiting instruction when needed.

Our goal is to help each child continually experience success with their learned skill, in different settings and as they grow.


Early Intervention Services

Teaching skills at an early age to improve your child’s quality of life

Early intervention services support a wide variety of school-readiness skills, including following directions, participating in group activities, and completing adaptive living skills, such as toileting.

It’s also valuable in teaching social and play skills, as children learn through play. Learning how to play independently and with others can improve the quality of life for many kids. 

Is your child struggling with challenging behaviors?

While it’s common for children with autism, emotional disability, and/or an intellectual disability to develop challenging behaviors, many programs aren’t set up to help these children.

We specialize in assessing and treating challenging behaviors so kids can keep making progress across all areas.

Yes, we accept insurance

We’re currently credentialed with the following insurance:

We know you have a lot on your plate and will help you navigate the insurance process. We’ll contact your insurance company to determine which services are covered and what your obligations may be before your child starts therapy. Also, to help you get a better understanding of the ins and outs of your coverage, we recommend that you give your insurance company a call as well.

Frequently Asked Questions

The curriculum and teaching procedures used in Full Circle’s ABA program tend to be more individualized and intensive than those typically utilized in a school setting. Additionally, public schools generally focus more on a student’s academic need. Because we operate from a clinical standpoint, we are able to address a wide range of skills including social skills training, toilet training, hygiene routines, community skills, and other daily activities as well as targeting individual behavioral concerns.
