Meaningful Whole-Family Help

From the point of first diagnosis, and throughout your child’s journey into adulthood, we’re here to grow with your loved one and provide support across the lifespan. Autism touches every family member uniquely, and our whole-person, whole-family approach leaves no one out. Whether the rest of your treatment team is here with us or located elsewhere, we’re working together with your child’s therapists, teachers, and doctors to ensure the best possible outcome.

Come partner with us for just one service, or enjoy the convenience of comprehensive, one-stop care when you choose your providers from our team of seasoned autism treatment professionals.

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)

Expertise matters.

Your success with ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) will depend on how skillfully your clinicians can partner with you and your child to design an effective program tailored towards your needs. Our clinical team’s expertise is unmatched in our community.

Not all ABA therapy providers are created equal.

Your child’s unique abilities, challenges, and needs deserve a personalized, multi-faceted approach. We “get” your child and know how to work alongside you and help your loved one learn and thrive.

Focused care, better outcomes.

We think you’ll notice the difference that our personalized treatment approach can make in your child’s desire to learn and grow. Our commitment to smaller caseloads allows our clinical team to work closely with you and your family, invest their focused attention in your child’s success, and ensure optimal results.

You don’t have to settle.

When you choose MindSource Center as your ABA treatment provider, you bring a highly-recommended clinical team on board, a team with extensive knowledge that comes from many years of successes with families just like yours.

Kent, Renton, Auburn, Maple Valley, Covington, Federal Way, Tukwila, Des Moines, Black Diamond, Ravensdale, and others. If you don’t see your city listed here, please ask!

Most likely, yes. We offer flexible scheduling to fit your family’s lifestyle, with morning, afternoon and evening options. Our goal is to create a schedule that meets your needs and allows your child to receive the full recommended dosage of ABA treatment.

As involved as you prefer to be! YOU are quite possibly the most influential person in your child’s life, and you’re in the best position to provide guidance necessary to help us succeed in helping your child. We’ll be sharing important information with you often, so at minimum, we expect parents to participate in their child’s ABA approximately 2-4 hours per month, or as determined by your clinical team.

We’ve got you covered. Bypass long waits you’ll likely find at other autism clinics and get started today with a neuropsychological assessment. An accurate diagnosis is an essential key to help you determine which services best fit your needs.

It’s easy! Start here or call our ABA intake department at 253-639-7146.
