Helping Those Who Struggle
Comfort gives your child the skills in communication, social interaction, academics, in life skills, to increase their every day independence.
Children with autism want to better express themselves engage in the world and enjoy life. Our mission is to see that they do. That is who we are. That is what we believe in.
Comfort is proud to be made up of highly experienced team with decades of combined experience. Our therapy professionals are experts in ABA and related ASD therapies.
The Comfort family is extremely diverse. Regardless of your background, your family can trust our therapy team to exceed your therapy goals.
Since 2009, we have been helping children on the autism spectrum maximize their potential as well as guiding their families. We started by first providing school therapy services. Our team provided part-time therapy and supported teachers as they assisted the development of children with ASD. We then set out to create an environment that will cater to the needs of clients and their families in a center based setting. We know that for kids to reach their potential, family and therapists need to be empowered to feel respected and appreciated. These pillars of our center lead to incredible balance and a winning combination for our client, staff, and families.
These goals are simply translated into our centers mission statement:.
Amazing results, at a time.

We have monthly Fun Days, all-center "huddles" at the start of each day, and annual traditions, such as the Comfort WinterBowl (bowling party) and the Comfort Summer Q (as in BBQ!). These events bring us together as a community and give us the opportunity to get to know one another better.
We offer hands-on ABA training, monthly group competitions (with prizes), quarterly ComfortLuck (potluck) lunches, and an annual life coaching group experience for all Comforters. Our goal is to create an atmosphere that exceeds expectations and truly embodies the positive culture of our center.
