As a leader in autism services in North Carolina, our founder, Denise DeCandia, has long been a pioneer in expanding access to care.
Originally from Long Island (and a passionate Mets fan), Denise began her career in autism services splitting her time between ABA services for young children in home settings and severe maladaptive behavior treatment for adults in a group home setting. She was quickly drawn to the power of ABA as an evidence-based, intensive intervention and its ability to help children access greater opportunity for independence and autonomy. Ever since, Denise has dedicated her life to expanding access to high-quality ABA services.
Today, CCABA is proud to be the leading provider of ABA services in North Carolina. Building on a central theme of CCABA’s history, the organization continues to believe that strong clinicians are critical to strong outcomes. With that, CCABA consistently invests heavily in training its clinical team and maintains a commitment to upholding the highest professional standards. Additionally, we continue a core belief that diversity make us stronger, both in terms of our team mates as well as the clients we serve.
CCABA is a mission-driven organization, dedicated to improving the lives of our clients, and their families. As a Public Benefit Corporation, CCABA endeavors to always further its mission of expanding access to high-quality ABA treatment and autism services. Our values are not just printed on paper or posted on the walls – they are our guiding light in all that we do, and we live them through our decisions, actions, and interactions, every single day.
