Say Hello!

Make a difference in the life of a child with special needs, create an inclusive community and improve yourself!

Types of special needs vary in severity. People with autism, Down syndrome, dyslexia, blindness, ADHD, or cystic fibrosis, for example, may be considered to have special needs. However, special needs can also include cleft lips, or missing limbs.

How We Help

We work individually with each family to
understand their specific needs

Everyone can
make a difference


We have two boys with autism and a typical-needs girl. Behavioral therapists have been in our house for at least 15 hours per week since our sons were diagnosed 6 years ago. We feel exceptionally comfortable with Melissa and her staff.”



It’s so great to work with a team that truly cares for their clients, led by a highly experienced BCBA who understands the value of respectfully including people of all abilities in our community.”

Melissa and her staff are able to work on our sons’ ABA goals in a natural environment (ex. our home, school, in the community). They’ve taught our sons natural language – they even use slang now and understand sarcasm!”
