Summit Autism Services is an organization committed to the treatment of children with special needs, using empirically validated methods and strategies in order to assist each child in reaching his/her highest potential, and improving their quality of life. 


Using evidence-based practices on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and the Early Start Denver Model (ESDM), our professionals collaborate with each family to develop and implement individualized treatment plans. They specialize in comprehensive early intervention (ages 0-5) programs and use evidence-based practices to target skill deficits and behavioral excesses for children with the diagnosis of ASD.


In addition to language, behavioral, and education programming, we focus on the needs of the family and its fundamental role in the success of our treatment programs. We are dedicated to providing each family with customized support and training using the principles of ABA, while adhering to the ethical and professional guidelines set forth by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB), the Association for Behavior Analysis International (ABAI), and the Association of Professional Behavior Analysts (APBA).
