Applied Behavior Center was founded on the principle that not every child learns in the same way. Through careful observation and interaction with each child, a determination of the best way to teach them, based on their individual learning styles is established. The program is unique in that all the programs are developed by Behavior Analysts who provide program oversight and also spend time directly in the classroom. Each child is given the attention they need and deserve. Our goal is to maximize teaching opportunities and make the learning process more efficient. Small classroom sizes & programs written by Behavioral Analysts insure a positive result.
