A compassionate, accepting, and scientific approach to
teaching children with Autism Spectrum Disorders
PAL provides ABA services and specialized tutoring services in Harford County and Cecil County, MD.
We specialize in a variety of ABA techniques that have been scientifically proven beneficial for children with autism spectrum disorders. Using these methods we are able to assess current skills and teach new skills, as well as maintain and generalize newly acquired skills.
We collect ongoing data for all programming in order to regularly assess skill development and behavioral changes.

During the initial consultation Sarah Craley, MA, LBA, BCBA will meet with the person inquiring of services. If needed, an initial observation of the student may be included. The initial consultation allows parents, caregivers and teachers a chance to meet with Sarah and together decide if further assessments, training or interventions would be beneficial. Initial consultations are free. No reports, intervention plans or training are provided from this meeting.
Using different tools we can assess a variety of skills in addition to any behavior problems that are concerning. A general assessment would include assessment of communication, social, emotional and academic skills as well as any problematic behaviors. We can also offer behavioral consultations including a Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) with positive support plans.
We offer a range of ABA based educational services. All services are supervised by a Licensed Board Certified Behavior Analyst and provided by trained staff.
Depending on individual needs the program may include any or all of the following components:
Discrete Trial Instruction (DTI): Intensive 1:1 teaching following specific methods.
Pivotal Response Training (PRT)
Social Skills Training
Self Help Skill Training
Communication Skills Development.
Specialized Tutoring Services
Many students are currently struggling to stay on grade level. PAL tutoring services provide one-on-one assistance for students with various academic needs. The tutor will review the curriculum of each student, provide a baseline evaluation assessment and create supportive lessons to ensure the student's academic growth. Supplementary work can be requested from the tutor for at-home use.
These services include one-on-one academic support for:
Home school students
Students looking to stay on the graduation track
Students with an IEP and/or 504 plan

With school and parental permission, we can provide various direct and indirect services to coordinate student programming for students. This may involve
Direct observation in a school setting
Collaborating with teachers on programming
Assisting with program modification
Providing resources for school staff
All clients enrolled with us are able to receive training on the specific plans and programs that we use. We are hoping to eventually expand this to include families in the community as well.
