At Quest Kids Academy we provide services to children living with ASD. Quest Kids Academy Director, Melissa Lopez, says, “We offer highly individualized programs to meet the needs of all our students. No two people living with Autism Spectrum Disorder are alike, and seeing the positive changes that our programs make in student’s lives makes my work even better."
 

Quest serves many individuals living with ASD at our training centers in Orlando and Tampa. We offer vocational programs, small group employment and supported employment opportunities for adults living with ASD and other developmental disabilities.
 

Hunter Williams, Quest Kids Director, said, “The biggest difference that separates us from other providers is our commitment to research and training talented behavior analysts to apply their science to individualize the care of the children and youth we serve. We are able to keep our lead analysts for many years, increasing our ability to remain the best program in Central Florida.”

Quest Kids focuses on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy which is scientifically proven to enhance a child’s skills and help overcome behavioral challenges and reach many milestones in their lives. Quest Kids offerings include Quest Swims, as well as health and safety programs.

 

Quest serves 1,000 individuals each day, a large number of those living with ASD. We have the right training, tools and awesome team members to transform lives. Learn more about Quest’s programs by visiting www.questinc.org.
