Our story

The BISTÅ Center is a non-profit organization that offers individualized Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy. ABA is the leading research-based treatment recommended for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities. ABA has been endorsed by the U.S. Surgeon General.

When families receive a new diagnosis for their child, it is often unclear where to turn for help and information. The BISTÅ Center provides families with information on available services and how to begin the treatment process. Research has proven that intensive early intervention can significantly improve necessary life skills that each child needs to be successful and take part in their family, school, and community.

Treatment packages are based on initial and ongoing assessments and include individualized skill acquisition programming, problem behavior reduction, and parent training.The BISTÅ Center also offers social groups throughout the week after school hours.

ABA takes place in the clinic in order to work on group social skills, language and communication, as well as as basic school readiness. Each child has a one-to-one provider in order to address individualized social goals. Each child will work with a consistent and familiar clinical team.
