As your child's first teacher, you play the most important role in their development. Your goals for your child are always our first priority. 


We will teach you how to use the principles of behavior analysis so that you can help your child achieve success at home and within the community.

At UP Autism Center, we provide full-time ABA therapy in our clinic so that your child can receive the intensive therapy they need to reach their full potential. We are different than therapeutic daycare centers and preschools because at UP Therapy your child always has their own full-time trained behavior technician by their side to teach them new skills and appropriate behaviors. Your child's program will be designed and supervised by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst who works as a team with you and your child's behavior technician.
