Founded in 2017, Forward Family Services embarked on a transformative journey with a single-minded purpose: to empower individuals and families to overcome challenges and achieve their full potential. Our story began with a profound commitment to evidence-based behavioral therapy programs for children and youth with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) diagnosis or disorders featuring similar characteristics.
Our origins lie in the belief that early intervention, rooted in evidence-based practices, can make an indelible impact on the lives of children and their families. We started by offering outstanding Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services, realizing that these therapeutic interventions could pave the way for meaningful progress.
As our journey continued, we embraced a comprehensive service model, recognizing that a child's development is a multifaceted journey. We expanded our focus to encompass all areas that affect a child's life, ensuring that we address not only the immediate needs but also the long-term goals of each child we serve.
Forward Family Services operates as a center-based facility, providing a structured and nurturing environment for individuals to receive the support they need.
However, we also understand the importance of flexibility in treatment. In cases where a child and their family's unique circumstances and individual goals dictate a home setting for service provision, we extend our expertise and support into the comfort of their homes.
Integral to our approach is the commitment to maintaining a scientist-practitioner model. We actively engage in applied research to advance the quality of treatment and ensure that our methods are continually evolving to meet the evolving needs of our community. This commitment to innovation and evidence-based practices underscores our dedication to making a lasting impact on the lives we touch.
At Forward Family Services, our mission is not just a statement; it's a daily commitment to excellence. We look forward to partnering with you on your journey, wherever it may lead, and to continue expanding our presence, from one community to the next, as we work together to create a brighter future for all.
