The Trellis Center at KidsTLC offers a collaborative, multi-disciplinary team assessment as well as single specialization assessments to identify your child’s needs in the areas of social behavior, language and communication, fine and gross motor functioning, sensory needs and academic and adaptive functioning.


Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)

ABA is the use of techniques and principles to bring about meaningful and positive change in behavior. This class of intervention includes techniques such as prompting, shaping, differential reinforcement and chaining. ABA services include center-based and in-home services for children ages 18 months to 14 years of age.

Social Learning Opportunities and Groups

Social learning opportunities are designed to facilitate social skills development in a structured, fun and supportive environment for children with social challenges related to an autism spectrum or related developmental disorder. On both individual and small group levels, we utilize trained neurotypical peer group volunteers to assist in the social development process of our clients.

Camp Trellis

Hey campers! We’ll be cracking the code for summer fun! Camp Trellis’ wacky themes and associated activities incorporate research and evidence-based practices to facilitate social skills development in a fun, structured and supportive environment. The camp curriculum enables children to increase abilities related to peer interaction and use social learning opportunities while developing meaningful friendships. Morning and afternoon sessions will be offered in June and July!
