Project Description

At Shine ABA Therapy, we believe in high-quality ABA treatment that is effective and long-lasting.  Our company's mission is to provide these treatments to a large population that needs our services, and those who are getting services are often being treated by clinics where quality control is lacking.  Sure, these big clinics may have swanky offices, but that means there is a lot of overhead, the employees are overworked, and their clients are underserved. A majority of clinics have months-long waitlists for children newly diagnosed, which is a detriment to the child.  Early intervention has been proven to be successful. 

Shine ABA can help create a revolution in the world of applied behavior analysis by taking on the big-guys and saying that quality, effective treatment is more important that increasing the bottom line. We provide ABA treatment, parent training/coaching, behavior plans, social skills training and many other services.  As roughly 1 in 5 children have been diagnosed with autism and many of these children have multiple skill deficits in at least one area (social skills, adaptive skills, verbal behavior, etc.).  There are many children who need these services, and Shine ABA can fill these spots. 

While I am the only employee of Shine currently, my plan is to grow to a full clinical team within one year.  The funding we receive will be used to buy equipment, recruit and train employees, as well as set-up a small clinic where we can provide 1:1 and group therapies.  

As a working mother of two young daughters, I need to set an example of what women can do if they are smart and work hard to achieve their dreams.  The funding received will help me realize my dream, bringing countless children and their families hope and a shiny, bright future. 

Thank you for taking the opportunity to learn about my passion and vision for a future.  Your funding is not only helping me and my daughters, but hundreds of children and their families.
