Applied Behavior Analysis


Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the leading approach to creating significant positive behavior change for autistic children. 

Our kids receive daily one-on-one therapy sessions from Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs), carefully supervised by our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs). Our BCBAs have one of the lowest caseloads in Austin, which means every one of our kids gets the attention they need.

We use a variety of ABA techniques when addressing the individual needs of our children that include, but not limited to:

  • Natural Environment Training (NET)

  • Discrete Trial Training (DTT)

  • Happy, Relaxed, Engaged (HRE)

Early Learning Academy & Big Kid Academy

Early Learning Academy is where our youngest learners begin their ABA journey. We focus on building a foundation of language, cognitive, and play skills. Once graduated from this program, our learners have the opportunity to continue with us through our Big Kid Academy. With a strong foundation in place, we have built an environment rich with opportunities to further generalize those skills into school and community settings.

School Readiness & Transition Programs


Through school readiness activities, we provide opportunities for our children to learn how to learn within a structured and accepting environment. This includes following a classroom routine, tolerating sitting within a group, responding to group instructions delivered by a teacher figure, and engaging in activities that may be present in a school setting.

Socialization is also essential for the healthy development of any child, but it’s even more important for children with autism. Self-regulation, finding socially-motivated solutions, and accepting when a peer’s decision is different than our own are all difficult skills that don’t always come naturally. We provide an enriching variety of special group activities (specials: Science, art, cooking, etc.) that fosters opportunities for our kids to engage in with peers.


These programs and our partnerships with nearby schools, helps pave the way for mainstream education and socialization. We believe that learning side-by-side with typically developing students will give them even more opportunities to make the lives they want.

Speech & Occupational Therapy


Part of our mission is to help kids with ASD lead fulfilling lives. Speech and occupational therapy provide the tools to be as independent as possible. But finding time to schedule these sessions can almost be as difficult as finding the right therapist.

Let us save you the trouble. Partnered with speech and occupational therapists, your child can receive these services at One of the Kids; you don’t have to drive across town from clinic to clinic.

Swim Lessons & Aquatic Therapy


Learning how to swim helps kids build confidence, burn energy, and stay safe. There are even more benefits of swim lessons for autistic children — from honing motor skills to practicing instruction. We offer lessons throughout the week at our onsite pool.

Our aquatic therapy program is different from swim lessons in that we are providing meaningful ABA therapy in a motivating water environment. It encompasses water safety, practicing other skills in a new environment, and effective ABA therapy.

Family Support


We know autism affects the entire family — and it affects everyone differently. We offer training for parents, siblings, and any other loved ones who advocate for autistic children. 

We support and collaborate with families to facilitate long term independence and teach life skills to each of our kids.
