Early Intensive Intervention for Very Young Children with Autism

Save Our Summer with ABA!

Hope 4 Autism is offering a summer program for school-age children with an autism spectrum disorder. 

The program is designed to provide intensive one-on-one applied behavior analysis to school age children whose behavior is too challenging for other summer programs such as camp, Boys and Girls club, or summer day care programs that only provide a small group program, at best. Each therapist is supervised directly by

Dr. Sheila K. Barnes, BCBA-D.
