Behavior Matters LLC serves children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and other developmental disabilities, ages 12 months through 18 years. Each child’s treatment program is designed based upon his/her individual needs as determined by assessment.

The terminal aim of every child’s program is to “close the gap” between their current skill level and those of their typically developing peers. To meet the aim of ‘closing the gap’, a comprehensive, behavioral and education program is necessary.
