Behavioral Initiatives is a family business owned and managed by a husband and wife team, Edmund and Sarah Bartlett, providing Behavior Therapy in Pembroke Pines, Florida. We started in 2009 as a sole practitioner operation named after Sarah Bartlett, intending to leverage her many years of experience and knowledge to support the behavioral and developmental needs of those diagnosed with autism and related disorders in South Florida.
Her passion to support this community was ignited in 2001 while completing an internship that introduced her to ABA. She saw first-hand the challenges faced by those diagnosed with autism and the positive impact of ABA. She immediately fell in love, knowing that this was not just a job, but a calling. Since then, she has committed to the science of Applied Behavior Analysis and its advancement and skillful application. In 2012, we decided to form an agency that would support current and aspiring ABA professionals who share the same passion and drive for excellence in this field. Two years later, we would change the name to Behavioral Initiatives.
We pride ourselves on being a group of dedicated professionals, providing quality Applied Behavior Analysis services to individuals with various behavioral and developmental disorders.
