Trauma-informed care shifts the focus from “What’s wrong with you?” to “What happened to you?” A trauma-informed approach to care acknowledges that healthcare organizations and care teams need to have a complete picture of a patient’s life situation — past and present — in order to provide effective healthcare services with a healing orientation.

Adopting trauma-informed practices can potentially improve patient engagement, treatment adherence, and health outcomes, as well as provider and staff wellness. It can also help reduce avoidable care and excess costs for both the healthcare and social service sectors.

Our approach to Trauma Informed Care

overlaps with neurodiversity affirming care. We believe that teaching self-advocacy skills and honoring bodily autonomy not only protects a child from being retraumatized, but also encourages self-confidence and promotes personal safety. We do not believe in compliance-based teaching and stand firmly in the idea that compliance-based instruction is harmful. We strive to teach children how to function to the best of their ability, to reach their potential, and to have access to their environment in the least restrictive and most inclusive way possible.

A Trauma Informed Approach to ABA Seeks to:

Realize the massive impact that trauma can have on a child's life

Recognize the signs and symptoms of trauma

Actively avoid re-traumatization

Be sensitive to emotional responses

Design programming in a way that avoids potential triggers

Create an atmosphere of emotional safety and connection

Honor client assent

Allow choice whenever possible

We Are Here to Help You and Your Children

We believe in your child's potential and are ready to help them grow through effective ABA therapy services and treatments.

My son Collin (4) was paired up with an AMAZING team. Our BCBA is Jillian and our RBT is Camille. Collin calls them his Jillie and Milk. They have truly been amazing. When we started this journey Collin maybe said 10 words functionally. He is now talking in 3 to 4 word sentences. He can identify emotions in others and is learning how to express his wants, needs, and feelings. He is learning how to play with others and so, so much more. They disguise everything as fun games or activities. Even my 2 older daughters want to join in. Collin received a diagnosis of ASD when he was 2yr old. Our Pediatrician really stressed the importance of ABA therapy. To be honest I was very reluctant as I have heard mixed reviews. After calling about 10 different companies to get information about their programs I found ABA. I was looking for someone that would work with me on how many hours a week he would be required to do. Most places I talked with wanted a minimum of 20 hours a week. At 3yrs old that is to much in my opinion. I also wanted in home and clinic sessions. I want to be involved. They have been willing to work with me on all of the above and so much more. Jillian and Camille are phenomenal at what they do. They truly care and love my little boy. I could not ask for a better team. He looks forward to going to the Clinic (Milks House) and them coming to our home. I can honestly say that I whole heartily trust them and feel so lucky that they are in our lives.
