Story

Discover what we do
and who we service

Robbie was a young boy

who loved pizza, singing and drawing;

perhaps very similar to a child you know…

Robbie’s parents and teachers noticed that he was having difficulty in certain environments. He was lacking a few essential skill sets, and was unable to communicate effectively.

Does your child exhibit similar behavior(s)?

Acting upon the advice of a happy reference, Robbie’s parents reached out to Golden Steps ABA. With our signature easy intake process and customized therapy plan, Robbie started to make noticable progress.

Golden Steps ABA combines personalized therapy plans with a wide array of resources to help each child advance in accordance with their unique circumstance.

Robbie still loves pizza singing and drawing,

but he also loves socializing and learning. He’s learned many

techniques to deal with challenging behaviors; be they sensory,

behavioral or social. And of course…he lived happily ever after.

Can you envision your child’s storybook ending? We can.

What’s your child’s character like?

Let’s explore the next chapter together.
