Mission Statement

At Sandbox ABA, we are committed to providing quality care to children through Applied Behavioral Analysis to all ages by our team of compassionate therapists. We create unique and individualized programs for each child and their unique needs. We utilize effective and evidence based strategies to help facilitate the learning process for your child and your family. Above all else, we strive to cultivate a community of support, knowledge, and compassion to ensure meaningful and sustainable growth.

What is ABA Therapy?

Applied Behavior Analysis therapy studies the relationship between a person and his or her environment, and how that environment can be shaped to affect behaviors. ABA therapy applies this understanding, in order to help a child acquire socially significant behaviors, such as communicating, playing, and engaging with others socially.

ABA therapy uses objective data to inform decisions about a child’s program. We gather data on a child’s responses to determine where progress is being made. We evaluate the data daily and make treatment and program changes to maximize your child’s learning.

Free Consultation

Choosing an ABA therapy provider for your child is a big decision. We want to learn about you, your child and your goals. We also want to share information about ABA, treatment, our clinic and our approach. Our goal is to help you discover whether we are a good fit for you and your child.

At the consultation, we will take time to listen to your concerns, your hopes, and your needs. We ask that all primary caregivers attend, so that we can hear from everyone and have the opportunity to share with all of you what you can expect from Sandbox ABA. Please plan on being available for an hour, during which time we spend the vast majority of time together in a meeting, followed by a tour of our Center.

My son, Grayson, attended Sandbox for over 2.5 years and we couldn’t be happier with the skills they’ve provided him to make his life easier and to prepare him to start Kindergarten on time with his peers.

My child, who is on the spectrum, attended Sandbox ABA for a year (2017-2018), and it was the absolute best decision we’ve made for him and our family!
