Why choose
Autism Behavior Services, Inc.?

Dr. Rosa Patterson, Psy.D, BCBA, LBA, QBA founded ABSI in 2010, and her goal was to make services available to the broadest possible group of people. In order to accomplish this, Dr. Patterson wanted ABSI to be the gold standard of premiere care and therapy. 

To that end, she had ABSI to certify every one of our Behavior Technicians with a CPR certificate, and as an Applied Behavior Analysis Technician (ABAT) or Registered Behavior Technician (RBT), before providing ABA services and care to the clients we serve.

Our behavior technicians are certified in CPR as well as ABAT or RBT.
