Teaching important life skills that will enrich the potential of your loved ones with autism.

Teaching your children independent skills can be daunting. It may be easier said than done, most especially when you are accustomed to having things done for them. Here at ABC, we strive to help and support you and your children every step of the way. The therapy we have prepared for them are essential for their personal growth, enhancing their individual skills which they will bring into adulthood.
