But with the right team by your side, you can expect a bright future.

If you’re searching for highly-regarded professionals who have the decades of experience, deep insights & genuine compassion to facilitate your child’s growth, we’re thrilled to welcome you.

Our story

After working for decades with children with autism, the changes that ABA therapy gave families amazed us. Over and over, children achieved milestones and developed skills – way beyond expectations. We realized that the impact could be ten-fold if done in the familiarity of the home environment, on a long-term basis.

We founded Mastermind Behavior to help your child reach their fullest potential, so they’re able to have a rewarding and fulfilling future. At Mastermind Behavior, your child’s diagnosis does not define them. We view each child as a precious and unique individual, and create a program which allows them to progress – and have the future which is possible for them.
