In the Classroom



Defining Skills and Reaching Goals

Above all, we want our clients to make meaningful gains by increasing critical skills and reducing interfering behaviors. We provide direct 1:1 Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) in the home environment. We work with parents to ensure that they are confident in implementing strategies that are effective for their child.


Generalizing Skills in the Community

It is imperative that children can use the skills they have learned in their in-home programs in a functional and meaningful way. Developing skills that have an impact on long-term goals is important to us.


As a parent of a child with exceptional needs, all too often we are left with defaulting to the recommendations of school administrators and support staff. We blindly accept that our children are getting what they need from schools to be the best versions of themselves. After all, they are receiving support from well trained, well educated, thoroughly experienced, passionate educators. Well, I’m here to say that, that couldn’t be any further from what is most often experienced. 

My son was struggling, regressing, after coming so far with years of ABA therapy. I was at a complete loss and desperate for answers. A Step in the Right Direction, was the answer. I no longer just had to accept the answers given by an understaffed, undereducated, under experienced, financially driven, decision making school district. I was empowered with undeniable fact based truths. The tables were turned. I am ecstatic to report that my child is no longer in a subpart educational environment. He is thriving in his new school, which utilizes every recommendation that Samantha McLean, from A Step in the Right Direction, made. Never has a name so appropriately optimized the service it provides. Thank you Samantha and A Step in the Right Direction. 

A loving father of an awesome kid!
