You just might’ve noticed that we have a whole new appearance! That’s because we celebrated our 15th birthday in September, so we’ve adopted a little more grown-up look — refreshing our brand to appropriately salute our evolution from 2002 to where we are today.
Yesterday, we were Little Star Center. Today, we are LittleStar ABA Therapy … Our kids have grown up over the past 15 years, and so have we. But we’ll always be the place “Where individuals with autism learn to live in the world. Where families learn they are not alone.”
Why the change? Great question. In a nutshell, people weren’t sure what it was we did, or who we served. And Little Star Center has evolved into so much more over the years, and we’re very proud of that. (And very grateful for each and every individual who’s been with us or helped us along the way.) We’re providing Real Care, Real Advocacy and Real Progress to individuals with autism and to the ABA community as a whole. (And, heads up, you’ll hear those words — Real Care, Real Advocacy, Real Progress — more and more. We’re living by them in every little thing we do.)
Today, LittleStar ABA Therapy is an active, esteemed contributor to both the local and national ABA communities. Our leadership team includes some of the most respected minds in behavior analysis. Mary Rosswurm, Tim Courtney, Vince LaMarca and Breanne Hartley even wrote the book on the subject, The Training Curriculum for Supervisors of ABA Technicians in Autism Programs (1597380989), and its corresponding training manual on how to supervise behavior technicians with Dr. Denny Reid, a nationally recognized expert on staff training and supervision. The leadership team has already begun conducting workshops throughout the nation on this curriculum. Likewise, our board of advisors are renowned ABA experts, at the forefront of autism information, studies and practices.
This evolution has helped non-profit LittleStar offer greater resources to our learners than ever before:
- We provide Real Care to learners through assessments and therapy based on the latest ABA science. And we offer compassion and guidance to families, whom we regard as our own.
- Through Real Advocacy, we present at national conferences, lobby for the rights of those with autism, and work to get medically necessary ABA therapy hours approved by health insurers. Barring approval or given an inability to pay, we can help pay for therapy hours using our LittleStar Care, Advocacy and Progress (CAP) Fund (formerly our “scholarship fund”). (Please consider contributing if you can!)
- We’re committed to achieving Real Progress with every learner via ABA therapy, setting them on personal paths to success and helping them reach goals that better their lives — and their families’ — now and in the future.
