Mission Statement

Focus Behavioral Associates exists to serve and support the behavioral needs of children and adults with autism, ADHD, developmental disabilities, and other behavioral disorders.  Through the proven strategies of Applied Behavior Analysis therapy, FBA strives to positively impact the long term social, behavioral, and developmental outcomes of the clients and community we serve.

About Us

Focus Behavioral Associates (Focus) is the only clinical-based therapy center in Central Texas that is focused on applied behavior analysis (ABA) techniques. Our therapists work with a variety of clients and offer customized therapy options for patients with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, and other common behavior diagnoses to treat and enhance their lives.  

Focus provides clinical based therapy utilizing the latest ABA techniques that enable children with behavior diagnosis to improve communication, motor, and reasoning skills. The treatment focuses on the relationship between a target behavior and the environment. Focus uses intensive behavioral intervention to achieve the targeted behavior. The goal of these techniques is to help the clients lead more independent lives by enhancing their social functions while decreasing negative behaviors.

Focus is proud that our therapists have extensive backgrounds in ABA therapy, and receive continual training in ABA practices.  In addition, they are CPR/First Aid certified and have been cleared with a formal background check. Furethermore, all therapy programs provided by our team are supervised by a BCBA (Board Certified Behavior Analyst).


We pride ourselves in offering customized services to address the needs of our clients and their families. Our services include:

Assessment, Consultation, and Program Development

We will work to assess the client’s strengths and weaknesses—to learn what helps the client, and to understand the priorities—in order to establish the key goals of therapy. We will then develop an individualized behavior program to address target behaviors and outline the skills that client needs to develop (e.g., compliance, communication, play skills, toilet training, cooperation and turn-taking, etc.).


After first building a relationship with the client, a trained therapist will use proven teaching strategies to help the client develop new skills, focusing on a number of different skills each session. Each skill will be practiced until the client has mastered it. Then, the therapist will work with the client to ensure that the skills are maintained and that they generalize outside the therapeutic setting.


We will work with teachers, parents, and caregivers to teach the techniques necessary to ensure support development outside of therapy. Clients make the most progress when ABA strategies are used consistently throughout the day, by all therapists, teachers, parents, and other caregivers. 

Data Review and Analysis

Focus Behavioral Associates has a state-of-the-art data collection system.  Our system allows our therapists to upload data and document sessions in real time. We offer individual log-in for clients and their families to be able to see the data and comments at any time. We are invested in ensuring the most accurate data service so we can best address our client’s needs and the progression of their goals.

Team Meetings

Along with our data collection system, monthly reports will be issued to review the client’s progress and discuss questions or concerns. We strongly promote a bond between therapist, client, and parent/caregiver.  If you have a question or concern about the client’s progress, we will openly address each with you. However, data about the client’s progress and what the data means is always available to you.

Feeding Clinic

Our feeding intervention program targets poor weight gain, meal time tantrums or mealtimes exceeding 40 minutes, distress and anxiety with new foods, inability to increase textures, inability or refusal to feed oneself, and extreme pickiness.  Our program includes assessments allowing the team to make general recommendations, as well as collaboration and participation from parents, caregivers, and an appropriately certified nutritionist.

Transition Services

We combine the use of ABA techniques with the specialized knowledge of transition to help families and individuals navigate the transition process (from school, employment, postsecondary education, or independent living).  We offer transition services to include transition planning, job skills training, independent living skills training, and social skills development.

Social Skills Development

With an in-depth social skills curriculum, the client will have daily social interactions that build on play skills and peer relationship development. Playtime is learning time for our clients at Focus!
