Early Autism Services Passionate About Potential

Passionate About

At Early Autism Services, we are passionate about the potential of your child. Since our founding in 2008, we’ve believed the best way to develop potential is through proactive, personalized Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy programs that enable families to work hand in hand with licensed professionals. We offer high-quality ABA therapy in Boston and throughout the United States, Australia and India.

We are a team made of hundreds of experienced behavior therapists, board-certified behavior analysts and caring individuals who are all committed to helping children with autism and their families.

What Is ABA Therapy?

ABA therapy is a form of behavior therapy for children with autism. This therapy aims to encourage your child to enact positive behaviors such as making eye contact and limit negative behaviors such as temper tantrums. In addition to managing these behaviors, ABA therapy also increases language skills and improves your child’s ability to focus. 

Behavior analysis therapy has decades of research behind it and is adaptable to fit your child’s needs. One main strategy used in ABA therapy is positive reinforcement. With this technique, your therapist will identify a goal behavior for your child and a meaningful reward. Each time your child enacts this positive behavior, they will receive their reward. Over time, your child will make a lasting behavior change. 

During your child’s session, their therapist may use various treatment methods. In some sessions, your child’s therapist may initiate the activity. In other sessions, your child may take the lead while their therapist observes. We also provide training for parents, caregivers and family members to continue treatment outside of therapy.

Child Receiving ABA Therapy at Early Autism Services

My child was just
diagnosed with autism.

Now What?

From understanding your child’s diagnosis to starting our autism services in Massachusetts, there are many steps along the way. Our team of clinicians is here to help. We can answer any questions you have and get you on the path to starting a personalized therapy program for your child. Below is a guide of our process at EAS.

Our Simple
5-Step Process

Whether you’re ready to schedule a free consultation or just want to talk, we’re here. 781.793.8184


A board-certified behavior analyst (BCBA) will meet with both you and your child to get a comprehensive view of their unique needs.

From submitting your insurance to communicating with your provider through authorization, EAS will manage the entire process.


A BCBA will provide a one-on-one assessment while engaging your child through play, observation and conversation. This observation allows our clinicians to build a personalized program tailored to your child.

We’ll reassess via all-staff meetings and collaborate with you to ensure the plan continues to address your child’s needs over time.

Is the Social Skills Group Effective?

Social skills groups are immensely beneficial for children with autism. While it may take some time for your child to grow comfortable and start engaging with their social skills group, many parents notice a positive difference in their children after attending several sessions. Some benefits of your child attending a social skills group include:

  • Increased communication skills: Many parents note an improvement or increase in their child’s social skills. After attending the social skills group, many children are better able to start a conversation, show empathy or read body language. 
  • Improvement in problem-solving: Our social skills groups give children the tools they need to solve problems individually and as a group. 
  • Self-confidence: In our social skills group, your child will meet others like them and receive positive support from their peers. Our group will also give them a sense of belonging or purpose as they work on their social skills to communicate with their new friends.
  • Safe space for your child: Our social group’s welcoming, safe environment will help your child learn more quickly and allow them to be comfortable with our therapists and their peers.

Most importantly, our social skills group is fun for many children and allows them to interact with their peers through games and other play-based activities.
