At The Behavioral Wellness Academy our mission is to promote the social-emotional development of children and adults with autism and other developmental disabilities. To that end, we provide treatment, training, and education that endorses independence and improves the quality of life of our clients by using evidence based treatment.

We also encourage caregivers, family members, and teachers to obtain the necessary skills in behavior analysis that ultimately help our clients achieve their full potential. We strive to bring meaningful behavior changes that are functional and important to clients by highlighting their strengths and abilities.

We also strive to provide quality treatment to persons with autism and related disorders in a supportive environment who otherwise may have had barriers in obtaining behavioral services. The emphasis is always client achievement and maximizing the individuals’ potential in the home, school, and the community to create lasting change throughout their lives.
