Have you ever felt like you have to choose between your child’s education and behavioral therapy?

At The Hope Source, we have mastered the balance of treating school-aged clients on the autism spectrum by offering medically necessary ABA therapy while honoring clients’ rights to individualized special education.

Our center is a state-of-the art autism treatment facility that blends clinical ABA therapy with behavioral therapy in an onsite educational setting.

You don’t have to choose between an intensive ABA center and your child’s education.

Our hybrid model allows our client-students to have both Continuity of Care and Continuity of Instruction.

More importantly, our approach facilitates therapeutic skills acquisition and behavior management to successfully thrive in high demand, complex settings like a classroom.
