Child putting puzzle together

Founded in 2013, The Howard Center for Social Cognition and Communication provides center-based Applied Behavior Analysis services to children ages 18 months to 10 years. We have also partnered with area school systems to provide evaluation and training services, as well as intensive behavioral support for students. Sarah Murphy, Clinical Director, provides individual supervision services to employees seeking certification as behavior technicians and behavior analysts. We enjoy celebrating the success of our clients with families and constantly seek to improve our practices through professional development and client feedback. Visit our Clinical Outcomes page for more information on our organizational improvement process, and to review data on treatment outcomes and caregiver satisfaction.
