As a parent of children diagnosed with Autism, I understand the challenges both the child and parent goes through.  It is our children's smallest victories that can give us the greatest rewards.  After seeing first hand the effectiveness of ABA Therapy, my wife Rene’ and I decided that we had to do something to help other families in our situation. Through our research we learned that Slidell, La. is limited in the number of facilities that offer ABA Therapy. It was at this time that we became determined to expand the reach of ABA in Slidell. All children deserve a chance to reach their fullest potential and we want to help open up the world to them.
