Intensive ABA

Intensive ABA Service locations at Fraser

Fraser offers Intensive ABA services in four of our six main clinic locations in the Twin Cities metro area, including Coon Rapids, Minneapolis, Woodbury, and Bloomington.

We also offer expanded access to Intensive ABA through Fraser Autism Center of Excellence Satellite locations, located in Maple Grove, Eden Prairie, Brooklyn Center, Burnsville, and St. Cloud, Minnesota. We continue to explore metro and non-metro locations for additional sites in the future.

Fraser Intensive ABA offers 20+ hours per week of individual and group intervention to help children learn new skills related to safety, learning, play, communication, gross and fine motor skills, and social skills. Services also identify barriers to learning new skills in an effort to transition services to a less intensive setting (e.g., preschool setting).

Intensive ABA services are provided in partnership with Speech and Occupational Therapy at all sites that offer Intensive ABA. Services provided at our Fraser Autism Center of Excellence Satellite sites connect families back to Fraser’s full-sized clinics to support them across their lifetime.
