What is Autism?

“Autism is a complex neurobiological disorder that typically lasts throughout a person's lifetime. It is part of a group of pervasive developmental disorders known as Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) that significantly affects how a person perceives the world, interacts with others, and communicates. As its name implies, ASD is a spectrum disorder that affects individuals differently and with varying degrees of severity.”

    "Finding Kate and ABA was like finding the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow for our family! Our five year old son's behavior had become so unmanageable that we had even stopped going to church for fear of him hitting other children. Within just a short time with Kate he had experienced so much improvement that out neurologist thought we had finally put him on medication. We told him about ABA and he asked for Kate's card in order to refer other patients to her! We couldn't be happier with the leaps and bounds our little boy has made. Though he still struggles with academics, I can honestly say if given a choice between improvements in behavior or school work, I would choose his happiness and peace every time."
