Little Leaves Behavioral Services is now recruiting an office manager for our new Little Buds center in Germantown, MD, to start in February 2020.

Little Leaves Behavioral Services

Little Leaves Behavioral Services provides high quality, critical early intervention programs designed to nurture the growth and development of young children with social, behavior, and/or language challenges. Little Leaves provides a range of in-home, at-school, and clinic-based ABA services for children with developmental delays, especially Autism Spectrum Disorders in Northern VA, the DC metro area, and the Baltimore metro area.

Little Buds Program

The Little Buds Program is a center-based ABA program for young children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder run in a preschool-like setting. The Little Buds Program runs Monday through Friday from 8:30 am 5 pm. During the day, children have the opportunity to participate in individual therapy time, small group activities with peers, and activities of daily living. While many clients are at Little Buds for the full day, an individualized schedule is developed for each child based on his/her therapeutic needs. The Little Buds Program currently has centers in Silver Spring, MD; Reston, VA; and White Marsh, MD.
