Developmental Wellness is Iowa’s only exclusively home-based ABA provider. We are a group of creative and dedicated Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) and Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs) working and living in Central Iowa. With a passion for supporting and teaching children with autism and other developmental delays, our team of professionals continually thinks outside-of-the-box to meet the needs of your family.
Every month counts when there is a developmental delay! Wait lists for ABA centers in the area can be 6-12 months or longer. Our goal is for children requiring ABA services to start with therapy as soon as possible.
At Developmental Wellness, our ultimate goal is to help children become the best version of themselves. We implement proven strategies in unique ways to obtain realistic results that generalize beyond the home into school and the community.
We serve families throughout Central Iowa.
