The Learning Lane (also lovingly known as T·L·L) is a locally owned and operated Applied Behavior Analysis Center dedicated to children ages from one to eight years of age with Autism. Our mission is to make every child feel triumphant in some way every day by providing a positive childhood experience.

It’s our pleasure to offer a multidisciplinary approach to learning using the principles of ABA. Our program offers a unique mixture of one-on-one time balanced with group interaction. Our highly qualified staff address a broad continuum of skills, in the areas of behavior, basic learning, cognitive, self-help, motor and language development.

We are a private pay center for children with autism or language delays. We also work with your Insurance Companies to get services covered. The Learning Lane’s staff provides a broad continuum of direct services, information and support in the areas of behavior, basic learning, cognitive, self-help, motor, and language development.

Our Diagnostic Evaluations set us apart and provide families the answers they seek. We often receive questions about how the process works. Click here to learn more 

My son, started ABA here in January and we couldn’t be more pleased and ecstatic over the progress he’s made while being at TLL! Best decision we’ve ever made! :) Thanks for being so awesome with my little one!

The Learning Lane  program serves learners with Autism ranging in ages from 12 months to 7 years old. While the groups are arranged in a developmental sequence, we are responsive to the needs of the individual children that enter into services. It’s our pleasure to offer the following services to our children and their families. 

  • Diagnostics - diagnostic evaluations are offered for those with suspected or known Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnoses to confirm or rule out an Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis or to update other assessment information.

  • Inclusion - inclusionary opportunities for group interaction within a traditional preschool setting are available to children that meet the necessary criteria. Children are supported by ABA trained staff mixed with daily one on one assistance.

  • Shadowing - to facilitate the transition from our intensive Clinical setting to a more typical classroom environment

  • Social Skills - provides direct instruction in functional social skills through a comprehensive module system in a “safe” environment, providing children the opportunity to develop the skills needed for success in the social arena.
