Consulting 4 the Spectrum has always had the same goal: to make a difference in lives, one child at a time and has provided services to over 200 students.
In 2007, Nikki Moses saw a void with limited ABA services in the Collin County area. As a result, Nikki founded Consulting 4 the Spectrum to meet the overwhelming needs of families. Consulting 4 the Spectrum was the first ABA service provider to employ therapists and offer full-time in-home treatment services in Collin County. Over the course of her experience, she began to see that many learners were having challenges with generalizing skills to various environments. To fill a void in the community, in 2009, Nikki opened her first ABA treatment center in Frisco, Texas. She offered families dual services in the form of center base and in-home treatment and focused her efforts on direct treatment, parent training and social groups.
Nikki has always placed emphasis on quality over quantity and felt it necessary to control growth so that we never lose sight of why we do what we do. With the need for more space, Nikki relocated her practice to Plano, Texas in 2013. We have maximized our collaborative efforts with related service providers such as speech, occupational and music therapists to increase positive outcomes for our students. A significant part of our service structure is our holistic approach to learning. Our services far surpass direct treatment. Preparing students for everyday life, interacting with others and being able to connect with the world around them is the cornerstone of what we do.
Nikki’s vision has always been to develop an effective way to bridge the gap between ABA and education. As many of our students have transitioned to mainstream and inclusion settings, we have seen a tremendous disconnect with their behavioral and educational needs being effectively met in school settings. Our mission over the course of this year has been to expand our pilot education program so that other learners can have access to learning academics with a behavioral approach. As a result, 4 the Spectrum Academy will serve as an alternative placement program for children with autism in January, 2017.
