Bible Based ABA was founded in 2014 as a means to serve homeless throughout Tampa Bay; the original stated goal being establishment of
behavioral homes for the homeless to aid the transition back to typical lives.
It soon became clear that the true need of Bible Based ABA was to aid in the support of Autism Spectrum Disorder and other diagnoses; and we then became part of the solution to the crisis facing individuals with special needs in Florida.
We train the community and local churches on how to improve their interactions with individuals with disabilities, or get them more involved. We also envision being able to provide protocols for free dissemination to BCBAs and BCaBAs, thus allowing them to support their own houses of worship more easily.
