Breakthrough Behavior Expanding Applied Behavior Analysis Services to Families in Georgia

The organization will provide treatment starting in Chatham County, including Savannah and surrounding areas

Breakthrough Behavior will provide services to families in Georgia starting September 1, 2021. The organization will provide applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy to children and young adults with autism and development disabilities starting in Chatham County, including Savannah, Pooler and Georgetown.

“We are overjoyed to begin serving families in southern Georgia,” said Breakthrough Behavior CEO Maegen Pierce, “There is a tremendous need for ABA services in this area and we look forward to making an immediate and positive impact on the communities in Chatham County and beyond.”

Breakthrough Behavior will start in-home services to clients in this region, featuring one-on-one treatment with behavior analysts and technicians. The grand opening of a new clinic in Chatham County is expected to take place in early 2022. Georgia becomes the fifth state to offer services by Breakthrough Behavior, joining Florida, California, Virginia and Maryland. Clients are also served in nine state-of-the-art clinics across these states, with Breakthrough Behavior headquarters located outside Orlando, Florida.

Dr. Heather Griffin, EdD, BCBA is the Regional Director of Clinical Services for Breakthrough Behavior and will oversee all clinical services in Georgia, as well as California, Virginia and Maryland. Learn more about Dr. Griffin and her position.
