When I began Reach High, I was a young mom searching for my place in the world to serve with all my heart. I began Reach High not because I wanted to be an entrepreneur, but because my heart was being finely tuned to the overwhelming need of quality services for those diagnosed with Autism.
While in college, I experienced some of the same challenges parents with special needs faced. My son had difficulty remaining on task, completing a task, and even had spurts where he would destroy property. Being a college student, freshly married, and with my first child, I had no clue what I was doing. Talk about high levels of frustration, sleepless nights, and plenty of tears. I remember sitting with my son’s kindergarten teacher and both of us were in tears as she shared with me information on ADHD and ODD testing. When I looked at the recommendations, I felt my world close in. The tears streamed from my face and began to soak the papers she had handed me. I left her classroom feeling like I was a terrible mom, I am clueless, I don’t even know how to deal with this. I felt defeated.
Then I found Applied Behavior Analysis. It felt like heaven opened up and shined directly on my situation. I jumped in with every single limb of my body for my son. My passion grew to see ABA provide hope and success for other families. Reach High was birthed from a place of tears, need, and self-sacrifice.
It is the first Applied Behavior Center in Bloomington, Indiana. We are an organization that provides quality services based in ABA and the different emphasis areas, such as Verbal Behavior, Precision Teaching, Direct Instruction and other evidence based methods.
