Improving quality of life for the differently abled Children & Adults

Lauren’s Institute For Education is contracted with the Division of Developmental Disabilities to provide the HabM (ECM) program for children diagnosed with autism, or at-risk for autism, who are under the age of four.  Additionally, we work with most insurance companies for those consumers who do not qualify for the HabM (ECM) program.
By utilizing scientifically validated behavior analytic principals, while maintaining the mission and vision of the organization, we hope to bring a humanistic approach to applied behavioral analysis.
