Our Dedicated Staff Makes A Difference for your Child with Autism
While our autism and behavioral health resources are vast, what really makes Springbrook different from other ABA programs is our people. Our staff is not only knowledgeable, but also dedicated to finding answers for each individual and excited about making a difference in the lives of the children, adolescents and adults we serve.
As an autism residential treatment facility, we also emphasize ongoing research and education for our staff members, which is why all of our staff members attend conferences, read, speak, and write in the autism community in addition to their work at our facility. Our involvement in the autism community means that you can rest assured that your child is getting the benefit of the latest research and treatment methods.
