Autism Behavioural Services was founded in 2007 by Freya Hunter M.Sc, a dedicated and passionate professional who believes that all children should be given the opportunity to develop to their fullest potential.
In 2006 Freya began offering ABA services privately out of her home office. As her practice quickly began to grow, Freya made the decision to open her first centre based location in Guelph Ontario. After several successful years and hundreds of families supported, Freya made the decision to move her centre to Fergus Ontario so she could provide more accessible services to individuals in rural Wellington.
At ABS we pride ourselves on offering professional and reliable evidence based services to individuals with autism and their families. Our team has a reputation for going above and beyond to meet the needs of our clients and families.
We believe that learning should be fun and that trust is foundational in our client relationships. When we combine evidence based practice, with fun engaging instructors who take the time to build rapport and genuine relationships with the families we support, we see great outcomes.
Our mission is to ensure that each child we support gains the skill set they require in order to grow with self-determination, self-worth, and independence.
As an organization, we will strive to teach our clients all that we can using Applied Behaviour
Analysis, while maintaining the integrity of each individual and providing them with every
possible learning opportunity they rightfully deserve.
