The Sensory Spot strives to utilize evidence practices infused with Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) principles to increase the knowledge of both client and caregivers thus effectively reducing skill deficits and problematic behaviors. Our mission is to focus on the whole family. By focusing on the whole family we take a more participatory role in the client’s life, building a higher probability of long-lasting change by working together. It is our belief that with effective training comes effective lifelong outcomes.
