It’s Time for a Change

While ABA therapy has made a profound impact on the lives of many individuals with autism, parents are often frustrated by long waitlists and high employee turnover. It’s quite unpleasant to wait for months for services to start… only to watch your therapists leave their job after a short while.

We believe that the source of dysfunction in many ABA therapy organizations is a focus on maximizing profit margins at the expense of the ability to attract and retain good talent. An obsessive focus on the bottom line, to the exclusion of other priorities such as work-life balance and clinical quality, make it difficult for providers to recruit and retain good talent.

At First Step Children’s Network, we’re different.

We provide the best ABA therapy services by investing in the very best therapists and keeping them happy with a supportive and positive team culture, great pay, and excellent benefits. The result? Little or no waitlist, low employee turnover, and ultimately better services for your child.
