Our Story

Started in 2020, Positive Development is rooted in decades of experience with autism and other developmental differences. We are parents, family members, self-advocates, and clinicians who believe deeply in the power of developmental care.

We've seen firsthand how it transformed our lives and the lives of our loved ones, and we want for all families what we were lucky enough to experience.

This is not just a job. This is our life's work. Our goal is to expand access to developmental care to every family willing to put their faith in us. We promise to reward that faith by giving each family the support they need to flourish.

"The need for what we do is tremendous, and it's growing. Our mission is to provide high-quality, evidence-based developmental care to families of all backgrounds. We deliver a comprehensive model of care centered on joy and progress carried out by a multidisciplinary team that supports the whole child and whole family."

"Autism isn't a one-size-fits-all journey—it's a vibrant spectrum of unique individuals, each with their own strengths and challenges. Yet, for too long, our options for intervention have been limited, often overlooking the diversity within autism. At Positive Development, we're thrilled to see a shift towards a more inclusive approach, championed by the AAP, AMA, and healthcare leaders nationwide."
