Founded in 1998, New Haven Learning Centre was the first in Ontario to offer an ABA program, and has become the prototype for how to best understand and treat those affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Highly accredited children's health professionals consider the New Haven Learning Centre to be the gold standard in Canada due to our individualized programming and collaborative partnership with parents.
To positively change the lives of individuals with ASD, and related disorders, by helping them to overcome barriers and integrate further into their communities.
New Haven Learning Centre seeks to maximize the development of individuals with autism, and related disorders, by using Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) as a primary method for improving the quality of life for students and their families.
Scientific, evidence-based ABA therapy is the core of what we do and is the most important driver of positive outcomes. Our services are founded on data-driven decisions. We deliver programs where the child comes first and put evidence-based science into practice.
Parents, staff, consulting specialists, and other support workers are all part of making each individual’s personal therapy plan a success. We share ideas and goals, co-create learning plans with caregivers, and, most importantly, we stay connected.
Quality and excellence are what we are known for internationally and within the local autism community. We strive for quality programming so clients and their families can have full confidence in their service plan. Our team of highly-trained staff and the supervisory team is critical to delivering a quality program.
We believe that community is the key to success. From early childhood to late adulthood, each person deserves to interact in a safe and supportive environment. We develop comprehensive transition plans with school boards, partner with employers to integrate individuals into the workforce and deliver community awareness via education and training.
We offer people of all ages the opportunity for self-transformation and to realize their full potential. We further empower their families to better understand their needs and equip them with strategies to support their child across their lifespan. Simply put, we provide hope.
We have an immensely dedicated and professional front-line team.
All instructors are held to a high standard of professional experience and training, and must be actively pursuing or be Registered Behaviour Technicians (RBT) and/or BCaBA, BCBA certified. Complimentary certifications and educational programming are also considered beneficial to the overall service model and professional credentials of our service team.
Our supervisory team are an integral part of the New Haven team, and are responsible for the daily implementation and evaluation of individualized programs for each client.
I feel that when the teachers all rotate and know all the kids this not only helps the kid to generalize skills but also for the teachers to work together to problem solve, teach and decrease certain behaviours. Also, the fact that New Haven has a real school setting is so amazing.

Caregivers are encouraged to make informed decisions when selecting their service provider. New Haven is recognized as a community leader in the Autism Spectrum Disorder and evidence-based, Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) sectors and we look forward to discussing how we might be the service provider that changes your child’s life.
At New Haven, we offer individualized programs and services based on caregiver input and clinical recommendations on the intensity of services that will best meet your child’s needs post our intake assessment. As such the fees and service costs vary across both our treatment and educational programming as they align with service intensity and student to staff ratios. New Haven services, and their associated costs, therefore vary according to full or part time services, group or individualized programming, and length of contract. Please note our tuition rate is subsidised up to 25% per student that comes to our centre depending on their service plan. Even with this charitable support, tuition for evidence-based interventions, however can be costly; especially for 1:1 services that are often required to substantially change the trajectory of development. We know that the cost of effective treatment is substantial and we will happily review our clinical recommendation and service plan with you once a tour and intake has been completed. We look forward to supporting you in gaining the knowledge required to make an informed decision in choosing New Haven as your service provider and we welcome the opportunity to review the various options directly with you during a consultation or tour.
