The AP Foundation is committed to assisting children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families achieve the most fulfilling lives possible
With the growing number of children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, the need for effective and accessible treatment has never been greater. The importance of continuing to develop what we know about Autism and how behavioral treatment can most effectively address this complex disorder is vital.
The APF research center is committed to evolving the field of behavioral treatment through ongoing research and is widely recognized for its instrumental contributions to the scientific literature in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis and ASD worldwide.
To support the growing need for effective treatment, The Autism Partnership Foundation is pleased to introduce the CENTER FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF BEHAVIORAL ANALYSIS, a training institute committed to furthering the field of Applied Behavior Analysis and Autism Spectrum Disorder by promoting expertise in the application of behavioral treatment.
In addition to on-site treatment at the CENTER FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF BEHAVIOR ANALYSIS, APF strives to make effective treatment accessible to all children in need by expanding what we know about autism intervention and increasing expertise in the field of ABA
