We are NOT the "Old School" ABA Model
The Sunshine Center® facility is not your ordinary ABA Therapy Center. We strive to ensure we are focusing on “A Whole Child Approach - Ongoing Collaboration & Generalization Amongst All Therapies & Families”.
In order for a child to be successful, not only in 1:1 therapy but in everyday life, the child must demonstrate mastery of that skill in a minimum of three different settings, with three different people, and with three different types of materials.
That is why we focus on making sure the child is generalizing each and every skill.
We achieve this by not just sitting at a table and chair for the entire session. We focus on naturalistic teaching instead of doing trial after trial. From day one, we pair with the child so they become comfortable with us so we can promote generalization right from the start.
Another way we achieve generalization is through collaboration.
We know it takes a village, therefore, we have monthly parent training meetings, we collaborate with the school districts, and we will always collaborate internally. Since we have it all under one roof, we have the benefit of learning directly from other experts in the field. Our Occupational Therapists, Speech Therapists, Physical Therapists, BCBA’s, and ABA/RBT Therapists all rely on one another, they observe each other, and most importantly, they collaborate on a daily basis.
We're a team of extremely knowledgeable and educated therapists that only wants each and every child to be successful.
The only way to achieve this is through what we do best: GENERALIZATION AND COLLABORATION!

Our Adaptive Approach to Autism Services for Kids
We understand that in many cases, the environment must adapt to the needs of your child. We created the Sunshine Center with your child in mind. Let our professional staff discover your child's strengths and identify areas where he or she can set goals.
The Sunny Days Sunshine Center offers Applied Behavior Analysis therapy (ABA) to help your child reach developmental and social milestones.
Our trained and qualified ABA therapists and specialists will work with your child in one-on-one sessions to help them achieve goals.
What Does ABA Therapy Involve?
ABA therapy is not a one-size-fits-all approach.
When your child visits the Sunshine Center, our board certified behavior analysts conduct an in-depth behavior assessment to develop an individualized plan for your child's needs.
Our team of certified ABA therapists will take into consideration your child's skills, interests, needs, preferences, and family situation when developing a plan. We'll also devise a set of achievable goals.
The plan is divided into manageable steps to help your child become independent and successfully reach both short- and long-term goals. We will use prompting, shaping, reinforcement, and generalization to ensure your child is successful.
Our behavior analysts will frequently review your child's progress and make adjustments to the plan and goals as needed.
To make sure you are updated on all changes and progress, we work closely with parents and guardians and will regularly meet with you to provide updates.
What Kind of Progress Can I Expect?
Everyone is unique, and the rate of progress varies depending on age, family goals, behavior assessment, and additional factors.
While some children acquire skills quickly, we find that most benefit from ongoing instruction that builds on their step-by-step progress.
Throughout the ABA therapy process, we will be with you and your child every step of the way and will make sure your family values and child's comfort come first.
Together, we can help your child reach their greatest potential through individualized, one-on-one therapy.
