At the core of all we do is the deep belief that every individual with autism has the potential to live a fulfilling life. Achieving that goal doesn’t happen easily or overnight. Helping adults and children with autism gain the skills they need to learn and succeed requires hard work, evidence-based treatments, and a committed support network. Since our founding in 2006, Potential has set itself apart by providing all these things and more.
What Makes Potential Different
At Potential, families will find a caring team of experienced professionals who understand the emotional roller coaster and many challenges that come with an autism diagnosis. We help your family cut through all the opinions and information, and work to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your child’s unique needs and stage of life – from pre-school through adult.
Our treatment approach is grounded in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), a proven method for helping children with autism grow socially, cognitively, and emotionally. Using the latest evidence in ABA, which includes an analysis of Verbal Behavior (VB), we work to improve your child’s communication, behavior, toileting, social skills, and more.
Guided by Our Core Values
At Potential, we have respect for people and show compassion through teamwork and integrity.
“A lot of companies claim family comes first, but Potential really means it. The respect they have for their clients is the same respect they have for their staff members.” – Kim W., High School Teacher
Potential truly cares about its employees and clients. The management team reaches out regularly to see if we need anything and employee birthdays are celebrated every month. It’s those things that make you feel special as an employee. – Chistine D., Billing Team
“We all have unique skill sets and we collaborate to do what needs to be done for the kids. Potential is like a community. It’s a great atmosphere to work in.” – Holly C., Quality Assurance Coordinator
“Potential has a personal touch with individualized treatment plans for each client and outstanding support for employees. I appreciate how approachable they are, and I can put a face with a name of every member of the leadership team.” – Patrick Y., Registered Behavior Technician
Culture of Caring
Potential is a small organization that is driven by our values and an enduring desire to help our clients be as successful as possible.
