About Us

At Elevation Behavioral Science Services, we believe in every child's potential.  Learning from parents and teachers helps us understand the needs of the child, what motivates them, and their individual strengths.  It is this in-depth understanding of a child that gives us the ability to find the true function of their behavior and tap into what they need.  When this happens, the magic of Applied Behavior Analysis begins.  Our team loves to help children in every setting reach their true potential through truly effective ABA therapy.  But our services don't end there, need help with an IEP or BIP at school?  We have you covered!
