LittleStar ABA Therapy provides year round therapeutic intervention for children with autism based on the science of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). LittleStar provides an atmosphere where children, therapists and families can interact and support each other. In order to maintain the highest level of quality and skill amongst new and existing staff, LittleStar requires all staff to participate in initial and on-going training. Families are offered the opportunity to participate in trainings as well. LittleStar believes this commitment to the training of staff and family is a crucial step in achieving the mission of ensuring that each child can reach their full potential at home and in a variety of settings outside of therapy.
