Who We Are

We are a group of highly trained and enthusiastic specialists that aim to provide a positive, engaging, and motivating learning environment for children with autism. The Cardinal Center for Behavior Analysis was founded by Sara Moser, with the assistance of Ashley Brightwell.  Both women were striving to find a positive learning environment that would best suit the exceptional needs of children with autism.

 Our Mission

The Cardinal Center for Behavior Analysis in Cary, North Carolina was founded to establish positive, motivating, and effective therapeutic environment for children with autism, related pervasive developmental disabilities, and learning challenges.

 What Is Applied Behavior Analysis?

 Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the treatment methodology we use at The Cardinal Center of Behavior Analysis in Cary, North Carolina.  This helps all of our clients reach their maximum level of independence and ability.  We believe that the key to helping a child reach their potential is to identify what motivates them and use those motivators in their learning. The staff at The Cardinal Center for Behavior Analysis will use what a child is motivated for to shape their appropriate behaviors. Our environment is enriched with motivating and reinforcing activities for children to love learning!  You can read more about our  hourly clinic and school – age programs on our Services page.

Why Choose Us?

ABA therapeutic sessions at The Cardinal Center are led by Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs), Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA), and/or a Licensed Psychologist (LP)/Licensed Psychologist Associate (LPA). Programs are continually supervised by a BCBA and LP/LPA based off on the Behavior Analyst Certification Board's ethics and guidelines for services. The goal of CCBA is to prepare students to be able to function independently and successfully in a least restrictive environment appropriate for their age. We intensively teach skills that will help your child achieve independence and success!
