We believe that everyone is a star. Our team of highly skilled professionals is here to assist your child and family in ensuring that their stars shine bright!


We specialize in building programs tailored to each individual child's needs, focusing our efforts on the most effective and researched approaches to manage and reduce problem behaviors. At Shining Stars Applied Behavior Analysis, we strive not only to develop, but to maintain and grow your child's functional living skills in order to maximize the quality of life for your family.



Our team is comprised of Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) and Registered Behavior Technicians (RBT) with decades of experience. We specialize in working with individuals who have intensive problem behaviors. Our methods are research driven and based on the latest research in applied behavior analysis (ABA). 


Our services include consultations and therapy sessions in a variety of locations – center, home, school, and community. We not only focus on helping your child, but also on giving you the tools and education you need to help your child shine their brightest.



We are mothers, fathers, grandmothers, aunts, brothers, sisters and daughters, so trust us when we say we understand completely how important family is. We work hard to provide you with the optimal results you deserve, and will walk along side you throughout your journey.




We offer services that are fully customizable based on your loved one's unique needs. Below are listed some of our specialized focus areas, but we are trained, experienced and passionate about finding solutions to your concerns, no matter what their origin. We would be honored to help you and your family  if your child struggles with any of the following, or other behavioral issue.

Center-based ABA therapy

We provide 1 on 1 (1:1) ABA therapy to your child – which means your child will be with one behavior technician (RBT) for the duration of the therapy session. Your child will likely be paired with more than one RBT during the week. Your child will receive intensive therapy according to the individualized treatment plan that was developed by the behavior analyst (BCBA). The Shining Stars Autism Center is centrally located at 8382 Baymeadows Rd. Jacksonville FL 32256

In home therapy

We offer in-home ABA therapy to address behaviors that are not exhibited in the center or school environments. We also use in-home therapy to teach functional living skills. We not only focus on helping your child, but also on giving you the tools you need to help your child shine their brightest.


Are you unable to go out in the community - to the grocery store, playground, library, etc. – because of behavior issues? Our team can accompany you to any of these locations also!


We are currently in-network with: Tricare, BCBS, Cigna, Aetna and are diligently working with other insurance providers to gain network status so that we may provide ABA services in the near future. Please call our office to inquire about our network status with your insurance provider.

Other Services

Shining Stars offers more than just ABA Therapy! We partnered with Play Works Therapies to provide Pediatric Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Early Intervention Services to our clients at one location.


Our Approach

Scientific studies have demonstrated that early intensive behavior intervention improves learning, communication and social skills in young children with autism.  ABA is designed to both decrease maladaptive behaviors and teach appropriate replacement skills for dealing with specific situations. We provide a framework of services that will provide optimal results for your family and loved ones.


Step 1: Assessment

We do not believe that one approach works for everyone, so you can be confident that our strategy will be completely customized according to your child's unique needs. We will first work with you to complete an individualized assessment. We also obtain parents input and discuss your hopes and dreams for your child. After the assessment is completed, a treatment plan will be developed.


Step 2: Treatment

After the assessment is completed, a treatment plan will be developed for you to approve based on the results and your input. We will always plan and implement a training program that works for your family's living situation and your child's specific needs. Once approved, we will focus on developing a schedule.


Step 3: Schedule

Once the assessment is approved a schedule will be set up. Based on your convenience a BCBA or RBT will come into your home and begin working with you and your child or your child will be seen in our therapy center. We strive to provide your family with the flexibility necessary to accommodate your busy schedule.  Once a schedule is established, we'll start incorporating training. 


Step 4: Training

Our treatment plans are only great if they work without us as well as they do with us, so we incorporate parent training in all of our sessions. We are here to help you, as parents, learn how to successfully manage problem behaviors and teach your child the skills necessary to be a Shining Star!
