Welcome to XciteSteps!

We are excited that you found your way to Xcite Steps.  If you have a child, teen, or adult with Autism Spectrum Disorder or other developmental disabilities, then Xcite Steps is the perfect place to find the most naturalistic opportunities to build on socialization, behavioral challenges, communication, language, play, daily living, and academic skills.  Our goal is to maximize success and create an enriched and empowered lifestyle through unique behavioral programs that are intricately tailored for each individual.

Xcite Steps has been offering individualized and naturalistic programs using empirically based techniques and theoretical practices for kids, teens, and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders and other developmental disabilities since 2005.  We offer a variety of ABA and social skills group therapy services to build strengths and maximize successes through in-home, school, community, and peer-to-peer programs set in the most naturalistic settings to promote generalization and independence.

Please browse through our website and you will learn about our philosophy and how our programs are built with evidence-based practices and a comprehensive approach to produce the best quality services to close the gap between atypical and typical development as quickly as possible.

Looking forward to learning more about your needs,

Matt and Stefan
Executive Directors and Co-Founders
