Welcome to Anchors Aweigh ABA, LLC!
We look forward to working with you and your family. At Anchors Aweigh, we pride ourselves on providing high quality Applied Behavior Analytic services. Anchors Aweigh was founded by two Master’s Level Board Certified Behavior Analysts who have each been practicing Applied Behavior Analysis since August of 2009. We provide in home, community, and school-based ABA services, and ensure we tailor each client’s program to you and your family’s needs. We currently employ 2 Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) and 1 Registered Behavior Technician (RBT).
All initial intake appointments will consist of a records review as well as a 2 hour assessment of your child. The results of this assessment will guide our treatment decisions regarding your child’s treatment plan. This assessment will also help us determine the number of hours of ABA services that we will recommend for your child. The results of the assessment will be reviewed with you prior to initiating direct therapy.
