Our Mission

The mission of Cayman ABA is to create a positive difference and significantly improve the quality of life of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders and other developmental delays, by providing effective and affordable ABA therapy, based on your child's individual needs. Our commitment is to establish a cooperative partnership through trust, respect, and communication with your family.

We understand that having a child with special needs means a lot for a family, and our priority is to provide families with support as they navigate through the journey of their child's development. 

Our goal is to provide high quality evidence-based interventions aimed at improving quality of life, functional skills, and socially significant behavior. We offer individualized evidence-based interventions that are centered around each child's growth and family needs.

Our Philosophy

At Cayman ABA, our philosophy of care is centered around providing child and family centered interventions that promote the happiness and well-being of the individual.  We believe that each child should have the opportunity to reach their highest potential, and we're committed to providing that opportunity through our dedicated partnership with families.

At Cayman ABA, we approach our work with the understanding that behavior is complex, and rooted in causes that we cannot always observe. On the one hand, we develop skills that help our clients learn functional skills and strengthen interpersonal relationships.  On the other hand, we work on teaching alternate means for your child to communicate their needs, instead of engaging in maladaptive behavior that may be harmful, dangerous, or inhibiting to learning. We respect the sensory sensitivities many of our children have, and help our children meet their sensory needs.

Cayman ABA focuses on improving the lives of the children with whom we work, and our goal is to teach skills that will help them navigate through a world that becomes increasingly complex as they grow older. 

We stand by these essential core values, in our everyday practice:

  • We promote individuality and the unique interests of children.

  • We respect a child's autonomy and actively teach self-assertiveness.

  • We support families throughout the entire journey of their child's ABA program.

  • We prioritize children and their families first, and our business goals second.

  • We value and actively welcome collaboration with other service providers.

For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them.

Why choose Cayman ABA?

Chances are that if you have a child with Autism you have come across the term Applied Behavior Analysis, often loosely referred to as “ABA.”

ABA is a behavioral therapy approach that focuses on what your child does rather than what they should be doing. During an assessment and observation, a Board Certified Behavior Analyst uses this information to identify the relationships between their behavior and different aspects of the environment.

Every treatment plan is going to differ since there are many variables that come into play when teaching a child with Autism.  Most importantly, no two people are alike. The goal for ABA therapy is to promote positive behavior change, and developmental skill acquisition.


We’re Multidisciplinary

We believe that the best approach is one that incorporates professional collaboration from multiple relevant disciplines.

At Cayman ABA, we view collaboration with other professions as an essential component to our services, and our multidisciplinary team works together to address the full range of a child's developmental needs. 

Incorporating expertise from other disciplines into our approach, including Speech and Language Pathology and Clinical Psychology, enables our children to make measurable gains in all areas of development.

We've got SKILLS®

Skills® is a tool developed by the Center for Autism and Related Disorders, designed to aide in the development of comprehensive, individualized plans for children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).  At Cayman ABA, we focus on teaching the full range of socially significant behaviors for a child, and the Skills® curriculum supports us to incorporate research-based lessons into our teaching programs.

We Track Progress

We take the guesswork out of your child's program, by measuring, tracking and continually analyzing data as we progress towards goals. 

You'll never wonder what your child is working on at Cayman ABA, or if they're making progress; parents have access to their child's cloud-based curriculum at all times, so you can be up-to-date and informed throughout your child's journey.
