An active member in the world of ABA, Tim works tirelessly to promote advocacy for individuals with autism, navigating health insurance systems and policies and Tim’s extensive knowledge and practical application of behavior analysis allows him to manage, supervise, and skillfully lead other therapists.

LittleStar ABA Therapy, Indiana’s first ABA therapy center, offers six locations, providing incredible exceptional, professional care for individuals and families affected by autism.

Tim’s nomination to the APBA’s Board of Directors recognizes his commitment, and LittleStar’s, to advancing autism therapy and intervention, making sure that proper, professional treatments are available to all who need them.

APBA’s mission is to advocate for individuals with autism, ensuring that everyone receives proper treatment and care by working closely with federal, state, and other third parties. Organizing professional behavior analysts, like Tim, from around the country who are committed to advocating for the well-being and equal access to treatment, the APBA has since 1998 helped individuals receive professional care and therapy.
