The Bierman Difference

Exceptional Care for Your Child

Our dedicated approach is built on a foundation of unique, evidence-based practices, and comprehensive support. This allows our clinicians to focus on what they do best, ensuring the best possible care and accelerating progress for your child.

Transformative Progress

Changing Lives by Pioneering Data-Driven Change

Our core purpose is to fuse science and learning to create meaningful progress and transform families’ lives. Our robust data and technology empower us to make timely, informed decisions that lead to measurable milestones and unmatched client success. We’re pioneers in innovative approaches, including our unique precision teaching style and careful tracking and analysis, all aimed at ensuring we consistently provide the best outcomes for our families. At Bierman, data-driven progress is in our DNA.

Empowered Growth

Igniting Potential Every Day

We believe in continuous growth and endless possibilities. Empowerment is key, and we use everyday activities to teach children foundational skills, such as self-advocacy and communication. We’re committed to each child’s everyday and long-term progress. We celebrate every achievement and milestone along the way—big and small! We never sit still, and are continuously raising the bar for our kids—and ourselves!

Let Kids Be Kids

Unleashing the Power of Play

Our mantra is Let Kids(and kids at heart!)—be Kids.  We embrace the concept of being fun and having fun. We erase the line between learning and play to keep children engaged and motivated. We create a warm, welcoming, and stimulating environment, and encourage our kids (and our staff!) to be playful and find the joy in learning.

Embracing Uniqueness

Tailoring Plans to Your Child’s Unique Needs

Just like a snowflake, no two children are the same. We accept every child (and employee!) for who they are—a one-of-a-kind person, with unique personalities, and learning styles. We tailor our treatment plans to the unique needs of each child and family. The effectiveness of our personalized approach is echoed through the success stories of both our kids and families (and employees!), thanks to the layers of expertise woven into our leadership structure and care model. We’re committed to helping your family achieve Success as Unique as Your Kid™.

Community + Collaboration

Partnering for Progress

We know it takes a village (or in our case, a “waddle”!) to make a meaningful difference. We’re stronger and more effective working together. We believe in the importance of communities and families partnering to achieve shared goals. From monthly parent meetings and caretaker webinars, to sensory-friendly community events, we’re committed to engaging and collaborating with our families and communities.

Commitment to Values

Adhering to our Core Principles, without Compromise

At Bierman, our values are our North Star. We’re passionate about transforming lives by accelerating progress. Making an impact is what motivates us on a daily basis. We believe in treating everyone with unconditional kindness, integrity, and respect. We promise to always do what’s right and what’s best for our families (and employees!), without compromise.

Our Story

Established in 2006, Bierman Autism Centers set out with a clear and heartfelt vision: to transform the lives of children diagnosed with Autism. From the outset, our motto was to let kids (and kids at heart!) be kids. Initially, we began by offering in-home care, believing in the intimate and comforting environment it provided. However, as we continually refined our approach, we recognized the immense potential of center-based care. By 2010, driven by our insights and dedication to progress and possibilities™, together, we opened our first center in Indiana. This pivotal move wasn’t just about location; it marked a significant evolution in our care philosophy. Center-based care allowed us to create consistently nurturing and attentive environments tailored specifically to our children’s needs. This shift became the cornerstone of our approach, and from there, our growth soared. Today, our centers stand as beacons of innovative care across several regions, including Arizona, Indiana, Massachusetts, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, and Rhode Island, exclusively offering center-based care for the well-being and comprehensive development of our children.

At the heart of Bierman’s operations is the expertise of our Board Certified Behavior Analysts and Behavior Technicians. Their dedication and insights allow us to marry the precision of science with the joy of playful learning. Our teaching method, crafted over the years, ensures that learning becomes a fun experience rather than a chore.

Looking back at our journey, with accomplishments like celebrating over 200 graduations, we’re reminded of our unwavering dedication to children and their families.

As we look to the future, our aspiration is to deepen our impact and continue to create progress and possibilities™. The growth of every child we work with inspires us to push the boundaries, innovate, and bring the best of behavioral therapy to the forefront. We’re immensely proud of the differences we’ve made and are excited about the countless stories yet to unfold.
