JumpStart Interventions

JumpStart Interventions was built on the belief that every child has untapped and limitless potential!


Our Story

Working with children and families affected by developmental disabilities is our life’s passion; it is what we were made to do. We believe there is no greater joy in life than discovering what you love and then being able to do that each day.

JumpStart Interventions was founded on professional passion and a desire to fill a need within the community; a need for a family-centered ABA program focused on the development of social skills and the creation of meaningful and significant friendships. Every child has a longing for connection to others. The acquisition of social skills launch feelings of belonging, self-respect, and confidence. To learn, a child needs to feel supported and confident and through social skills children learn how to be determined, how to problem solve, and how to be resilient. This is how we tap into potential; by teaching children to be resilient learners. This is the catalyst in reaching limitless potential!
