Our Mission

Our goal is to ensure that each one of our children gain the sets of skills they require to order to grow with self-determination, self-worth, and independence.

As an organization, we will strive to teach our clients, all we can using Applied Behavioural Principles, maintain the integrity of each individual and provide them with every possible learning opportunity they rightfully deserve.

About Us

Autism Behavioural Services was founded in 2007 by Freya Hunter, an approved Senior Therapist, who is passionate and dedicated to helping children with autism live their lives to their highest potential.

Freya has over 20 years experience within the autism field, supporting children, teens, and adults. For 8 years she ran services in ABA and IBI from her home office, but due to increased demand, she has been able to open a Centre in Fergus and Orangeville, Ontario. Both Centres are fully equipped to accommodate clients with all types of needs.

The therapists at Autism Behavioural Services goes through an intense hiring process. Freya has pulled together a highly effective team, who all share her ultimate goal of making a difference in the lives of children with autism, behavioural challenges, and their families.
