Autism Center Looking for Autism Services? We Can Help

Autism Center

Our Autism Center is designed specifically for parents and children with autism spectrum disorder from infancy through adolescence. We offer Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy, an empirically supported treatment for autism spectrum disorder. Kids On The Move believes clients learn best when ABA therapy is presented with a fun, gentle, trauma-informed approach, focused on client assent, choice, and compassion.

Our qualified team of Board Certified Behavior Analysts and Registered Behavior Technicians work together to create and provide high-quality, effective therapy to each client. Clients in our Autism Center learn skills chosen specifically for them, such as communication and language, play and social skills, daily living skills, and safe alternatives to challenging behaviors. At Kids On The Move, we celebrate the uniqueness of each child and provide individualized, client-centered therapy focused on each child’s strengths.

We recognize the impact a diagnosis of ASD has on the entire family and offer support to strengthen each family’s unique circumstances through a variety of services.

  • 1:1 ABA Therapy
  • Skill Acquisition and Behavior Support
  • In-Clinic and In-Home Services
  • Parent and Family Training

ABA Therapy

All interventions used in the Autism Center fall under the umbrella of applied behavior analysis (ABA). ABA therapy has been used for the treatment of autism since the 1960’s and is recognized as effective treatment for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) by the U.S. Surgeon General, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the National Institute of Health. All ABA services at Kids On The Move are individualized for each client and developed and supervised by Board Certified Behavior Analysts.

ABA therapy works to increase behaviors that are helpful and decrease behaviors that are harmful or affect learning. ABA therapies include Discrete Trial Training, Natural Environment Training, Verbal behavior techniques, and more. ABA therapy can increase skills across many domains such as language, communication, attention, social skills, and daily living skills, as well as decrease problem behaviors.

ABA therapy can look different depending on the learner. It often involved a lot of play and a focus on increasing language skills. It can also include working at a table, using token boards, and earning rewards. For some children it may look like practicing daily living skills like preparing a meal, using a fork, potty training, or contributing to the home by doing chores or following a routine. Our treatments are individualized for each child based on their unique strengths and challenges.

Most insurance companies have coverage for ABA therapy and KOTM accepts all major insurances and Medicaid. We also offer self-pay pricing.


One of our first steps in designing effective treatment for your child involves an assessment. An assessment for treatment is different from a diagnostic assessment or psychological evaluation. A Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) will get to know you and your child through a variety of ways, including interviews, observations, skill assessments and questionnaires. All of these items help your child’s BCBA better understand your child’s strengths and challenges and help guide the course of treatment.

Telehealth Services

Telehealth services are the delivery of ABA therapy to rural communities where there would otherwise be no behavioral healthcare providers to work with children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Our BCBAs (Board Certified Behavioral Analysts) have masters’ level experience and knowledge in training caregivers and working with children.

We believe that all families should have access to the best care for their children. Thanks to our online delivery system, we are able to offer the benefits of ABA therapy to families who otherwise do not have access to ABA services in their area. Please apply to learn more about if this service is covered by insurance in your area.
