GBC ABA provides center-based and in home therapy to kids with autism. They teach skills like communication, independent living, motor and much more.

“ABA or applied behavioral analysis is all about using what’s motivating or fun to the learner to teach or capitalize on different learning opportunities,” said Danika McGandy, Cheif Operating Officer for GBC ABA

The company started in Chicago but moved down to Central Illinois to help fill the need, with centers in Peoria and now Normal.

This fall GBC ABA will be staring the Caterpillar Learning Center in Normal, where kids on the spectrum aged 2 – 7 can learn the pre-academic skills they need to be to successful when they transfer to a traditional education setting.
