Bright Futures strives to provide effective, comprehensive therapy programs that bring real change to the families we serve. To maintain quality treatment programs, the majority of services take place in our clinic where highly qualified and skilled certified staff closely supervise and provide direct services to each client. An individualized, comprehensive treatment plan is developed with guidance from parents to assure that we’re focusing on building skills that will improve the child and family’s quality of life. To that end, once the child has fundamental skills, therapy frequently includes in-home and community based programming. Close therapeutic relationships and parent training is paramount to making this happen.
Bright Futures realizes that there is a great demand for ABA services and that individuals nearly any age and range of abilities could potentially benefit from services. Unfortunately, qualified ABA practitioners are scarcely available and many families spend years on waiting lists. In order to make the best use of the few available resources, Bright Futures prioritizes early intervention and primarily only accepts new clients under the age of 5.
To help increase service capacity, in addition to advocating for systems change, Bright Futures specifically hires staff who are interested in making a career of ABA and offers training initiatives to those who wish to become certified.
