Welcome to

Applied Behavioral Services!


Applied Behavioral Services was established in 1999. ABS has provided over 16 years  of intensive intervention, with over 30 years of collective experience with children with special needs. Applied Behavioral Services is a Model Program and leader in the field of autism treatment. 

  ABS provides full treatment intervention for children with autism and related disabilities.  Applied Behavioral Services is also an educational placement program specializing in serving children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder as well as other cognitive and developmental delays.

ABS is an Autism Scholarship Provider and a Jon Peterson Scholarship provider with the Ohio Department of Education and are proud to offer small classroom ratios, highly individualized curriculums, and behavioral managment programs that are all overseen by one of our highly trained BCaBA's or BCBA's.

Our  treatment programs and classrooms are individualized based upon the assessment and needs of the student.  A student may begin our program in a 1-1 or 1-2 setting and then move to our Step-UP Programs where social skills, academics and classroom routine are stressed as a priority. 

Applied Behavioral Services is the largest, as well as the number one, private educational placement choice among our families in the greater Cincinnati and Dayton area.  Contact us for a tour or more information about all of our programs, class placements, and therapies for your child today.
