Please call to schedule your free advisory appointment. We are here to help!
At AJB we believe:
1) Every child is unique, and therefore the strategies we use to help each child and their family is individualized.
2) Learning is fun and should not feel like work at a young age! We make every child feel special as they are learning and prospering with the family.
3) Skills taught must be functional for the child and family.
4) Teaching in the child’s natural environment with the family as a team promotes generalization (true learning) for the child and the family.
5) AJB works with children of all ages and conducts psychological evaluations for diagnosis, if the parent requests. At AJB we believe learning is limitless like your child.
At A and J Behavioral Health we use a team approach to therapy. We know that every family’s needs may be different; therefore, we use our experience of over 15 years as behavior analysts and provide the best professional direction and guidance while working collaboratively with you, the family. Our ultimate goal is to better your child’s life and yours.
AJB provides in home and in the community one-on-one therapeutic services by the most highly trained professionals based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and Verbal Behavior (VB) with an emphasis on:
Behavior modification programs
Social and daily living skills programs
A and J Behavioral Health takes a whole family therapeutic approach to helping your family. We believe that the family’s involvement in the therapy with AJB is the key to success for your child. We believe in striving to work with the entire family to instill harmony and balance to enhance the overall sense of well-being for all. All of us at AJB believe in creating an individualized functional program for your child to integrate seamlessly into your daily lives.

Initial Consultation for New Families Seeking Autism Therapy
Recently my insurance company was attacking A and J Behavioral. My child has received flawless services from A and J for over 2 years and my child Ava has been massively improving. At 5 years old she is finally potty trained and can answer questions. Before A and J Ava didn’t speak at all. So when my insurance company was attacking A and J for several years and chased them out of network I felt horrible for them since they are probably not going to be paid over a million dollars because of my insurance company. All the employees at A and J Behavioral walked me through the process of using them as an out of network provider. Thank goodness I still have my therapist from A and J Behavioral!!

I took my son in for an evaluation based on the recommendation of his teacher. We met with the doctor who inquired about the behaviors we and his teacher had been noticing. After meeting with him, a sweet woman came to help put together what they call a treatment plan. Overall, the evaluation gave me a sense of relief, knowing my son was going to get help. We recently were assigned a teacher who comes 2-3 times a week. She works directly with my son. And he loves her! We are thinking of adding a weekend date, as we are already seeing the benefits of this therapy. Making the choice to get help and see this agency was the best thing I think I could have done for my little guy. Looking forward to continuing!

I don’t know what to say. The bcba and therapist taught my child how to maintain eye contact and respond to her name. I couldn’t be more thrilled. They are the best!:)))

As a mother of a child that had fairly obvious issues to me but yet was not obvious to many health practitioners before I came to A and J Behavioral Health. A and J recognized the issues and formulated a detailed plan to help. We have been with A and J for only a few months, but my daughter has made great progress! Thank you for listening and helping !

My wife and I were going from pediatrician to neurologist to psychologist and we had no answers on how to help our youngest daughter. All Of the supposed doctors said “there is nothing wrong with her” but my wife and I knew better. Once we called A and J we realized they were pediatric child specialists that could help us. Pediatricians are only interested in passing you on to a neurologist who truly doesn’t know anything about mental health. They wanted to put our daughter on medication and we couldnt figure out why since she was not aggressive. We refused to put her on medication since she didn’t need it. The neurologist just said this medication will make her less anxious. I wasn’t sure she was anxious or just didn’t know how to behave or function in society. Since starting with A and J a couple of months ago we have seen a dramatic improvement. The Senior staff is helping educate and train us as well to help her on a daily basis. She is starting to interact more and seems happier. Thank you so much :))

The therapists have been so professional and caring. This has been a difficult time for me and my family. In 2013 my child was diagnosed with a disability and everyone at A and J has helped us cope and help Mylie develop social skills. I can’t help but say the greatest things about A and J! They are the best!

I can't say enough about the caring staff. A year ago my son was not able to attend school because he was very disruptive and now he is a model student. Thank you to all at A and J Behavioral Health!!
