Florida Family Support provides personalized ABA or Applied Behavioral Analysis services for children (18 months and up) with autism and/or on the autism spectrum, and their families in the Palm Beach and North Broward markets. Founder Natalia Perez, MS, BCBA, LPC, IMH, and her team of experienced and skilled therapists demonstrate their incredible passion and understanding with each and every family they work with.
Recognizing the importance of the child’s support system and family as a key to the success of behavioral therapy, Florida Family Support uses a multidisciplinary approach by integrating one-on-one therapy with not only the child, but also the family. Training and “Family Support Groups” are provided for caregivers, siblings, and family members to assist them in handling the difficult times and pressures that may emerge. Most individual counseling sessions take place in the patient’s home and/or personal community where the reality of life exists.
Florida Family Support is committed to creating a supportive community focused on training, sharing experiences, building confidence, and strengthening the family relationship.
Our programs are catered to the family as a whole. We provide personalized services to fit the needs of your family and help each member understand and manage autism and developmental disabilities. Our objective is to provide the following to help your family:
As your child grows, we will grow with you, providing you and your family with the support it needs.
