to families affected by autism and other behavioral challenges
Many providers offer ABA therapy. We want to give you something more valuable: hope. When you partner with ChildFirst to treat your child, you join a community of people who have your back as you go on this journey―always comforting you, encouraging you and empowering you to think differently about autism and other conditions.
As the parent of a child with autism, our founder Ashley Musial has seen firsthand how valuable therapy can be and how it can change your family’s future. That’s why ChildFirst involves the entire family in the process, providing therapy that meets your child where they are and nurtures their unique personality.
Our team is guided by core leadership values that influence our work with each and every patient. Both our Board Certified Behavior Analysts and our Registered Behavior Technicians receive ongoing professional training to continually improve their skills.
Ashley Musial is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and Licensed Behavior Analyst (LBA). She has a Master of Education in Teaching and Learning: Special Education from Liberty University, and, completed her graduate work in Behavior Analysis with the Florida Institute of Technology. Ashley has 6 sons, with one on the Autism Spectrum. She and her husband homeschool their boys, and they are passionate about helping other families with ASD navigate life with hope and knowledge.
