Our Treatment Approach
Learn to Grow ABA center is a highly respected and supported non-profit organization providing behavioral therapy for children with autism and related disorders. Learn to Grow’s parent company, A Hope for Autism Foundation, was founded in 2009 by parents and professionals to provide quality educational and behavioral support for children with autism and related disorders and their families, create a pool of well-trained home interventionists and school personnel that serve children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and increase community awareness about ASD and applied behavior analysis (ABA).
In 2013 the Hope For Kids Project center based program was founded with a focus on specialized instruction that optimizes learning across all settings. The Early Social Learners program was launched in 2014. This program is an extension of a successful pilot study conducted by our founder from 2008-2012. Our Early Social Learners group incorporates a developmental approach of understanding perspective and social thinking concepts as well as individualized instruction for each unique child we work with.
Learn to Grow uses internationally recognized methods of treatment to impact children’s lives and to assist and educate the community about ABA therapy. Learn to Grow is built on the foundation of providing individualized therapy and education for children with autism and related disorders and their families, and promoting awareness of autism in the community. Therefore, within each child specific program, we may utilize a variety of treatment techniques under the umbrella of ABA to ensure the most effective of learning environments, as well as to promote the generalization of necessary and functional skills.
Our approach to working with children is rooted in Applied Behavior Analysis and includes (but is not limited to) discrete trial teaching, applied verbal behavior, natural environment teaching, direct instruction, and precision teaching (fluency based instruction). We believe that parent involvement and teaching in a natural environment should be a part of every child's program.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement
Our staff and clients come from different countries all over the world with different experiences. Oftentimes, individuals from different cultures, ethnic and racial backgrounds are viewed as one homogenous group. However, this is rarely the case. It is essential that clinicians make every effort to become knowledgeable regarding the cultural demographics of their clients and recognize the diversity between and among ethnic, racial, religious, and cultural backgrounds.
The concept of culture is very important when delivering clinical services. Cultural aspects can impact all elements of the clinical process, from initially engaging with clients and families to assessment and treatment.
Recognizing how our own values and cultural constructs can impact how we perceive our clients and what we see as pathology, clinicians are challenged with focusing upon the strengths and protective factors of each group in an effort to help clients and families reach their potential.
At Learn to Grow and its parent company A Hope for Autism Foundation, we strive to eradicate racial disparities in health outcomes and within our organizations. We thrive by making health care delivery equitable and inclusive for all.
We are committed to providing high-quality care, improving access to care, and addressing the inequities, structural racism, and injustices that have marginalized our most vulnerable populations.
