First Steps Interventions uses evidence-based ABA techniques to teach important skills such as communication and social skills, daily living and adaptive behavior skills. Our programs ensure that learned skills are generalized by incorporating family members and familiar environments during our interventions. We also have highly experienced behavior analysts who can manage the most challenging behaviors, such as aggression and self-injury, through functional behavior assessment and behavior-reduction treatment plans. It is our clinical philosophy that a well-rounded ABA program should be culturally sensitive and developmentally appropriate, never cookie-cutter and always individualized to each child's needs. By providing clinic, community and in-home services, we are able to serve our families' wide-ranging needs.
When I approach a child, he inspires in me two sentiments – tenderness for what he is and respect for what he may become.

Early Intensive Behavioral Intervention (EiBI) is recommended for young children diagnosed with autism as a measure to alter the developmental pathway set forward by an autism diagnosis. Many important social and communicative behaviors are typically established within the first few years of life, and an intensive intervention is often the best way to fill in the gaps and help the child get on course to a more typical development. Contrary to outdated beliefs, there is a substantial risk associated with delaying treatment and waiting for the child to grow out of their challenges or delays.
