For Military Families

Military Families & ABA

Compass is dedicated to serving our Military Families affected by Autism. We understand the unique needs of military families and strive to provide support beyond ABA Therapy. Our therapy services are designed to accommodate all changes a military child faces such as deployments, PCS, new schools, and new housing. We help with the transitioning of ABA Services in the case of PCS and in some cases can continue to provide services if we are in the servicing the area of relocation.
