About ABA Therapeutics

ABA Therapeutics was founded in 2017 by owner and Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) Donna-jo "Dj" Murphy. Dj has over a decade of experience using Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) for early autism intervention. Since opening in 2017, ABA Therapeutics has grown to include a team of five skilled Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs).


Our passionate and dedicated team primarily works out of our center in Woburn, MA. Together with their RBT, children will work on developing individual and social skills while playing with cars and trucks in the automotive room, reading stories in the library, or jumping in the bounce house in the gym.


Our Mission

ABA Therapeutics, LLC is committed to upholding the ethical standards set by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board and the Board of Registration Allied Mental Health of Massachusetts while providing clinically sound, individualized applied behavioral therapy. Our mission is to foster the development and independence of each one of the children we serve.


Recognized for Quality Service

ABA Therapeutics is a proud recipient of the BHCOE Accreditation ®. This certification is given to an applied behavior analysis provider once it has demonstrated it has met and continues to meet an assortment of clinical and administrative standards as determined by an independent third-party evaluator.

How to Begin Services

Step 1: Intake


Complete the intake form or email info@abatherapeutics.comAfter we receive your message, we will mail you an intake packet. You will be asked to provide basic background information about your child, proof of ASD diagnosis and health insurance. Once intake is received, ABA Therapeutics will contact your insurance for an assessment authorization.

Step 2: Assessment  


A Licensed Applied Behavior Analyst (LABA) will be assigned to your child's case based on their needs identified during intake. The LABA will conduct assessments and develop programming. ABA assessments typically including direct assessment (with child present), indirect assessment (file review, parent/ guardian interview) and the treatment plan write-up. 

Step 3: Treatment

Based on ​your child's assessment results, the LABA will develop a treatment plan (TP) with individualized goals and teaching methods. The TP will include recommended treatment hours and location(s) (e.g. home, community, center). Treatment hours typically range from 15-40 hours per week. Before ABA therapy begins, the TP will be submitted to insurance for coverage approval.
