Elevating Potential, Empowering Lives 

Welcome to StriveHigh ABA, where our mission is to help children with autism and related abilities soar to their highest potential. Our unique approach combines a personal touch, a high level of integrity, and collaborative strategies, all driven by our core values of Heart, Integrity, Growth, and Harmony.  

What is ABA?

ABA, or Applied Behavior Analysis, is a positive and supportive approach that uses the science of behavior to help children with autism and related abilities thrive. It’s all about encouraging and reinforcing the skills and behaviors that will help your child succeed in everyday life.

From improving communication and social skills to fostering independence, ABA is designed to make learning enjoyable and natural, ensuring that these essential skills become second nature. By focusing on your child’s unique strengths, ABA helps them overcome challenges and enhances their overall quality of life, making everyday interactions more meaningful and joyful.
