Why Choose Occupational Therapy for Autism at Alternatives ABA?

At Alternatives ABA, our highly specialized therapists are trained to provide occupational therapy services to assist clients in acquiring or regaining the skills they need in their daily lives.

Incorporating each other’s interventions and goals means faster progress and better outcomes!

Your child’s treatment plan is individually tailored to focus on improving the “building blocks” needed for a strong foundation, such as motor skills coordination and planning, sensory processing, body and spatial awareness, visual-perceptual skills, and self-regulation.

The ABA Center With Endless Possibilities

For years, our founder searched for an ABA center where clinicians would see her son’s brilliance, not just his diagnosis. So she partnered with other clinicians who shared her belief that individualized treatment plans should target deficits while nurturing strengths. That mission led to the exceptional family- and child-centered ABA that you can enjoy today at every Alternatives ABA center. Our cross-specialty teams make your journey easier, your child’s therapy more fun, and your community support more impactful.
