Maximize Those Who Struggle

Cornerstone gives your child the skills in communication, social interaction, academics and life skills to increase their independence every day. Children struggling with autism want to express themselves, interact with their world, learn more about it, and enjoy life. We will go the extra mile to see that they do. It’s who we are. It’s what we believe in.

We Focus on Immediate and Long-term Goals
After a comprehensive assessment, we establish immediate and long-term goals for your child’s progress. Our year-round, one-on-one programs are directly supervised and developed by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. Our behavior therapists use Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and Verbal Behavior (VB) therapy to break life down into small, manageable pieces and reassemble it into productive behavior patterns. Cornerstone applies a tried and true scientific method of identifying your child’s individual motivations — such as hugs, movies or cheering — and uses those motivations to break through barriers to progress. We further tailor that intensive treatment to your child’s unique needs, abilities and preferences. If your child grows distracted, tired or agitated along the way, our therapists adjust quickly to ensure engagement remains.

Our Spaces Were Designed with your Child in Mind
Our facilities are specifically designed to be warm and welcoming to children, parents and caregivers. They feature calming colors, signature décor, an abundance of open spaces, play fixtures and learning amenities. Cornerstone encourages your child to energetically climb, jump, play and explore with others and nurtures your child’s unquenchable curiosity for knowledge. Therapists also increase or decrease sensory stimulation as necessary to meet your child’s requirements while respecting socially acceptable boundaries.

We Treat the Whole Child
There are many misconceptions about what ABA is, or what skills are addressed. The truth is, ABA principles can be used no matter what you are trying to teach. At Cornerstone we work on all the skills the child needs in order to be successful in life: communication, academics, self-help skills such as potty training, and social skills just to name a few.
