Programs Offered in Louisville, Kentucky

Clinic based services

Children grow more independent in a safe, caring, and comfortable environment by playing with peers, practicing and learning social skills, communication, daily living skills, and school-readiness.

Social group services

At times, skills need to be targeted with peers rather than just with a BT. Social groups provide the opportunity to work on developing social interactions with multiple peers, including those that are typically developing.


Our team of specialists use therapeutic methods to help individuals change behavior, overcome problems, and achieve their goals. Psychotherapy is also commonly called therapy or counseling.
