The MSP Clinic is a training-based clinic in which direct therapy services are delivered by current graduate level students pursuing their Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology and/or a certificate in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). The clinic offers ABA services to children between the ages of 2-5 with a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). At our clinic we use ABA therapy, an evidenced based treatment where children receive early intervention services with our passionate and driven team.
There a variety of different types of interventions that may be used during ABA services at the MSP Clinic including:
Direct therapy sessions are one-on-one therapy sessions in which our direct therapists work with your child to implement treatment goals. Sessions vary in length and frequency depending on your child’s needs.
During therapy, our direct therapists work with your child one-on-one to implement treatment goals. Treatment plans can target communication, social skills, independence, and more.

Parent and caregiver trainings are sessions held to provide parents and caregivers with training on implementing treatment to generalize and maintain the progress of goals. Trainings are offered frequently and can take place in person or virtually. Our aim during parent and caregiver trainings is to provide support to families throughout the process of treatment. Our trainings are collaborative, tailored specifically to your family’s needs and supportive. Our team aims to be a consistent source of support for you and your family throughout treatment.
Supervision is provided by a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). A BCBA is a Masters level clinician who has completed behavior analytic coursework, training and completed board certification requirements. A BCBA will assess and evaluate your child’s needs and create specific treatment goals to address these goals. The BCBA will oversee therapy sessions, provide training to direct therapists, create treatment packages to increase desired skills and decrease barriers to progress, and provide parent and caregiver training. Supervision includes and is not limited to directly overseeing and supervising therapy sessions, providing skills training to direct therapists and modifying programming and treatment goals.
