Ally Behavior Centers is a full-time, center-based, early intervention program. We focus on early learners with autism, ages 18 months to 6 years, and deliver much-needed services to families.
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is recognized as the leading approach to treating children on the autism spectrum. Our clinicians have years of experience working with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and are passionate about helping children fulfill their potential.
Your Child Deserves Therapy
Long wait lists for other ABA Therapy Centers can be a persistent problem and can add unnecessary delays during a critical time in these children’s lives when they should be enrolled in a full-time, center-based program receiving one-on-one therapy. Research has repeatedly demonstrated that children who begin ABA Therapy as early as possible (18 months – 2 years old) make significantly more gains than those who do not start therapy until later in life.
We are equipped to get your child the medically necessary care they need to maximize their potential. We can also arrange for an autism assessment to evaluate if your child has a medical diagnosis of autism if needed. We are here to help.

I'm Concerned About My Child's Development,
What Should I Do?
Long waiting lists for assessments for Autism Spectrum Disorder are all too common in the Washington DC metro area. Often families have to wait over 6 months to a year to be seen. These delays come at the most critical development time for many young learners and are a barrier to getting many children the medically necessary therapy they need.
Our staff psychologists and BCBAs are trained to conduct the ADOS assessment for autism. We provide this free of charge to help families and give the results to the child’s doctor. If appropriate our licensed psychologist can also conduct a comprehensive evaluation for autism. Please contact us if you are interested in having your child assessed.
