At Kaleidoscope Clinic, our founding principle rests on supporting our community by bettering the lives of children and providing access to early intervention for those with differing abilities. We have seen families on waitlists – sometimes for years – for these critical services and recognize that there is a need in our community. Kaleidoscope Clinic was born to address and meet that need and provide resources through our educational therapies and guidance programs.

When your child receives ABA therapy, Occupational therapy, Speech therapy, Language therapy, or any other services offered by Kaleidoscope, they are receiving that service from a professional who is also trained as a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT). All staff are cross trained as RBTs and receive ongoing in-service trainings across all therapy departments. Actively utilizing a multidisciplinary approach in collaboration with each learner’s team gives each clinician the tools needed to provide comprehensive and effective strategies to provide the best possible outcomes and service to each learner and their family. Family involvement is a large part of your child’s success and we welcome you to participate in your child’s learning and development journey.

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is an evidence-based best practice treatment with a wide range of benefits. It has been shown to increase communication skills, improve social skills, and decrease problem behaviors. Most importantly, is adaptable to meet the needs of a wide range of individuals that works in both one-on-one and group settings. Our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) and Registered Behavior Technicians (RBT) are dedicated to providing the highest level of care.
