I'm a


Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA®) and Business Owner

Hello and welcome to my page! I'm so glad you've found your way to my website. My name is Julie V. Scher, and I am an approved Ontario Autism Program (OAP) provider and Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA®). I am also the founder of ABA in the GTA Autism Behaviour Therapy, a company that provides exceptional Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) therapy services across the Greater Toronto Area. At ABA in the GTA, we uphold a set of core values that guide every aspect of our work. Our commitment to safety, trust, empowerment, dignity, fun, respect, bodily autonomy, rapport, assent, and authenticity sets us apart from other providers. Our values guide me in delivering the highest level of care to clients, making ABA in the GTA a preferred choice for anyone seeking quality ABA services.

In addition to my work as a BCBA®, I have also developed an interest in the world of web design and coding. In my experience, designing digital solutions is not so different from designing interventions for behaviour change. Both require careful attention to detail, a deep understanding of the individual's needs, and the ability to communicate effectively. Whether I'm writing behaviour plans or creating app prototypes, my goal is always to provide the highest level of care to my clients. As a BCBA with over 10 years of experience, my focus is on developing individualized treatment plans that prioritize the safety, dignity, and well-being of each client. When it comes to web design and development, I am passionate about creating user-friendly interfaces and experiences that prioritize accessibility, usability, and visual appeal. By merging my skills in both ABA therapy and UX/UI design, I am able to offer a unique and well-rounded approach to meeting the needs of my clients.

Frequently Asked Questions

Check out my FAQ section to help you make informed decisions about your care or the care of your loved ones.

The Ontario Autism Program (OAP) is a needs-based government-funded program, meaning that the funds you obtain varies on the extent of intervention your child or youth requires. The program provides various services and supports to families and individuals on the autism spectrum. Services and supports you may be eligible for include, foundational family services, caregiver-mediated early years programs, core clinical services, entry to school programs, and urgent response services. To register for the OAP, your child or youth must meet certain criteria, including being under the age of 18, living in Ontario, and having a written diagnosis of autism from a qualified professional.

AccessOAP is responsible for intake procedures and is funded by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services. The organization's primary objective is to help families access autism services throughout Ontario.

I am an approved OAP provider.

Therapy can take place in home or community-based settings, such as school or camp. I also offer virtual sessions.

The number of therapy hours needed is individualized and based on the unique needs of your child/youth. I provide both Comprehensive and Focused ABA services, ranging from 5-25 hours per week. Comprehensive ABA programs provide intensive therapy for several hours a day, several days a week, for an extended period of time. Focused ABA programs provide targeted intervention for specific areas and require less direct therapy and supervision time compared to comprehensive programs.

Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is an evidence-based therapeutic approach that uses positive reinforcement to help individuals improve their communication, social, academic, and independent-living skills. It is a safe and effective treatment that teaches individuals helpful behaviours and reduces interfering behaviours that may pose a barrier to growth. Check out my blog on Today’s ABA.

Your therapy team will consist of a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA®) who designs and monitors program effectiveness based on mutually agreed upon goals. Another crucial member of your team is the Behaviour Therapists (BT) who works directly with your child/youth each session. Once you agree to services, I will gather the perfect team to support you and your loved one.

The cost of an ABA program depends on the number of hours you and your loved one need. In general, you pay for the direct therapy by the Behaviour Therapist and Supervision fees for the BCBA®. Please contact me for a free 30-minute consultation so I can learn more about your situation.

Your BCBA® or BT will suggest materials that you should purchase to enhance progamming (e.g., language builder cards, etc).
