ABA Clinics Are Not All The Same
Behavior Train is a stand-alone ABA clinic that specializes in early intervention for children exhibiting the challenging behaviors associated with ASD, ADD, or ODD.
While multi-discipline or collaborative clinics may seem more convenient for multiple therapy requirements, research shows that stand-alone ABA clinics tend to create better outcomes.
Every child should be referred to the resource that is best suited for his/her needs.
We empower families to navigate the treatment process together. A critical part of our process equips parents with the skills to better assist their child. To us, lasting change only happens when family members are part of the solution. Our goal is to get children to no longer need clinical therapy because their parent(s) can be that support, to guide and help them thrive on their own.
Early Intervention for:
- Autism Spectrum Disorder
- Attention Deficit Disorder
- Oppositional Defiant Disorder

Communication is key.
We believe that collaboration is key to gaining understating about everyone’s role across domains of care. It is our intent to play our role in creating synergy with other health care professionals.
Educating the community is key to our success and the success of our clients. We would love to give you a view from the inside of the industry and help you understand what quality ABA therapy looks like, providing you with appropriate questions to ask your families currently receiving aba, and insights on how you can make sure that you are making the best referral decision for your patients .
For referring physicians, we will fax you a copy of our initial assessment results, the clients individualized plan of care, quarterly progress notes and other follow on information we think would be beneficial for you to have. Also, when you send us a referral, we will fax back a status form letting you know if we were successful in getting them on our therapy schedule or provide a further explanation if unsuccessful.
Our Workforce Standards
One of the biggest problems reported in ABA is staff turnover. It takes a significant amount of time for a behavior technician to develop their skill set to the point where they are versatile with a full range of client types. We are proud of the fact that we have excellent retention rates with our therapists, never losing one to a competitor.
This is a competitive advantage that allows us to be efficient in our delivery model, regardless of whatever scheduling changes arise from day to day.
Since we are working with a very vulnerable demographic of children, we have developed a rigorous hiring process aimed at client protection. There are key personality characteristics that are preferred and others that are avoided. Posting this information here could compromise the integrity of future results. More information is available upon request.
Cognitive Aptitude Assessment – Only a score landing an applicant in the top 50% nationally will qualify for an interview
An in-depth personality profile is administered to ensure cultural fit with coworkers while leveraging as a prescriptive coaching tool post-employment. We believe one of the greatest precursors to optimal outcomes for our clients is first taking care of our staff, protecting the culture and providing a distraction-free work environment.
Attainment of Registered Behavior Technician Certification is required within the first 6 months of employment for therapists.
How To Know If We Are A Good Fit For Your Patient...
Children under 6 have different needs than older kids and adults. Because of this, not all ABA clinics treat younger children effectively.
Our behavior analysts (BCBA) understand child development -- not just ABA therapy. We recognize where a child should be and what foundational blocks need to be recreated for them to thrive. We work primarily with children ages 2-6 to identify and address challenging behaviors early when we are able to make the biggest difference.
“I met with a couple of different directors at ABA therapy facilities in the area. I immediately felt at ease when I met with DeAnna. I knew that this was where we belonged. She cared about my child reaching his potential and living his fullest life.”
