Team of BCBA Oversight: Having a team of Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) overseeing the ABA department ensures that the therapy provided is evidence-based and tailored to each child's unique needs. BCBAs are trained professionals who specialize in behavior analysis.

Trained RBTs and ABA Therapists: Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs) and ABA Therapists play a crucial role in delivering ABA therapy. Their training and mentorship program ensure that they can effectively implement behavior intervention plans and strategies.
