MESQUITE, Texas, January 13, 2020 — As more children are being diagnosed with autism than ever before, Behavioral Innovations focuses on Early Intervention and employs intensive Advanced Behavioral Analysis treatment to children on the Autism spectrum. The center-based ABA facility is designed to promote developmental growth, improve communication, social, self-help and adaptive living skills in conjunction with isolating maladaptive behaviors and replacing them with socially appropriate skills.

Patients and parents alike will be welcomed by the warm, fun, and inviting atmosphere characteristic to all Behavioral Innovations centers.  The state-of-the-art facilities provide a place for children to “play” while individualized skill acquisition, social skills, and behavior reduction goals are embedded within treatment.

Christina Chaney will lead the new center opening and brings extensive experience working with children on the Autism Spectrum. Ms. Chaney is a superb resource for families seeking further information on ABA therapy and has served in various positions in her career related to behavioral disorders.

“We are thrilled for the opening of Behavioral Innovation’s Early Learning Center in Mesquite. We are engaged in the child’s journey from start to finish, and we are grateful to bring state-of-the-art facilities and evidence-based Applied Behavior Analysis treatment to families here. Our greatest mission is to leave a positive lasting impact on the lives of children and parents with our wonderful centers.”

Behavioral Innovations was founded almost 20 years ago when Behavioral Analysts Lori Russo, Carla Edwards and Billy Edwards noticed a lack of available resources to assist children diagnosed with autism. Their first ABA-based autism therapy center was opened in Dallas, Texas in 2003. Teams at the centers include skilled and passionate personnel, such as admissions, insurance, billing, operations and a highly advanced clinical staff. The staff at the learning centers reflects the passion and dedication to improving the lives of children on the autism spectrum and their families that drove Lori, Carla and Billy to start the company nearly 20 years ago.

The Mesquite center is enrolling clients now. The center is located at 920 Highway 352, Suite 200 in Mesquite, Texas. For more information, or to connect with the Mesquite therapy center, please call (855)-782-7822.
