We’re Here to Help
Using contemporary ABA therapy to nurture potential in your child or young adult with autism
Raising a child with autism is not a one-person job. At BCI, we want you to know we’re here for you — and can help your child make progress every day. In greater Springfield, we specialize in using compassionate, contemporary applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy, tailored to the unique needs, behavior, and personality of your child or young adult. Throughout therapy, we consider you, as a parent or caregiver, your child’s first and most important teacher — and work with you to carve your own path to success.

About Our Services
What services do we offer – and where?
Building and Expanding Skills—and Mindsets
We understand that no two kids with autism are the same, and “one-size-fits-all” treatments do not work. That’s why we use science and data to deliver contemporary ABA therapy, backed by decades of scientific research and personalized for your child and family. Our services help your child or young adult:
- Build language and communication skills
- Develop age-appropriate social (and play) skills, while forming friendships
- Increase flexibility and tolerance for new routines and experiences
- Decrease behaviors that interfere with growth and learning
- Prepare for and succeed in school
Mostly, what our services do: foster your child’s confidence and resiliency — and empower them to lead a happy, fulfilling life.Schedule a Consultation
