The following fictional characters represent the typical experiences of young children and the staff who support them.
Thanks to a team of board-certified experts focused just on him.
Mason and his mom arrived this morning at 8:25 am, and even though it took a little while to settle into the routine today, he and his morning technician Denise are working together by 8:30.
Just like every other young child at the center that day, Mason is receiving one-on-one ABA Therapy from a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT). He’s been making progress with communicating with peers and asking for what he wants, and Denise will work with him all the way through morning.
Denise is just one of several highly-qualified team members that are focused Mason’s program today.
Mason’s mom had a lot of choices when he was diagnosed with ASD, but she chose LittleStar because our non-profit nature keeps us focused entirely on those we serve and their families.
Mason’s having an easier time asking for help, and his mother is relieved that she can rely on him responding to her in public, so he stays safe.
Denise has a plan when she greets Mason in the morning. It’s one that she, her Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA), Mark, and Clinical Director, Jane, put together based on recent observations of Mason, the goals his family helped set, and what everyone hopes to accomplish in the long term.
But Denise, like every technician at every LittleStar location every day, has the expertise to make the changes Mason needs to maximize his progress.This morning, she quickly assesses Mason and realizes that he has fully retained the things they worked on yesterday, so she moves ahead faster than planned.
His family trusts her and the other experts at LittleStar because they’ve seen the results.
Mason works with his afternoon technician before he goes home. He’ll come back tomorrow excited and ready to make more progress. His entire team at LittleStar is optimistic that he’ll hit Kindergarten ready to enroll, initially with the help of a technician, and eventually even on his own.
Mason’s family is starting to get the hang of their routine – Mason’s diagnosis is just a few months old – and they’re enjoying an active role in his development. More and more, they’re realizing that all kinds of communication can be possible and they’re really hopeful of what might be.

LittleStar is built to offer that kind of support but also go further, advancing the practice of ABA Therapy for autism and being a real advocate on your behalf.
