Progressive Behavior Therapy


Progressive Behavior Therapy is the lead provider of ABA services in the Waterloo Region.

Progressive Behavior Therapy was established in Nov 2008 in order to provide services for parents seeking quality Applied Behavior Analysis and Social Skills training for their children with Autism.


We are a team of highly trained professionals with over 20 years of experience working with children on the Autism Spectrum.  Our goal is to help children with Autism Spectrum Disorders reach their full potential.  To achieve this goal, we use the principles of Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) to create individualized programs to meet the specific needs of each child.  We offer both Centre-Based and Home-Based ABA services.


Our team consists of Carrie Spence, B.C.B.A., MSc, Founder and Director, along with our qualified Senior Therapists Caitlyn Heggie, and Keltie Heggie.  We have an amazing team of 24 Direct Instructor Therapists for our centre-based clients and home based therapy. Together, we  provide initial and ongoing ABLLS-R assessments or other curriculum tools appropriate for each child’s individual needs, specific programming, and direct supervision.
