About Us

patch01.jpgEmerald Coast Autism Center (ECAC) is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization located in Niceville, Florida dedicated to educating and improving the lives of young children with autism in Okaloosa and Walton counties and surrounding areas. ECAC is unique in our approach to teaching these amazing children. All instruction and activities at the ECAC are conducted in a manner consistent with the science of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). The science of ABA is currently the only proven intervention for children with autism. Specifically, ECAC follows the Verbal Behavior (VB) approach to ABA, based on B.F. Skinner’s analysis of verbal behavior.

All of our staff members are trained ABA therapists, certified teachers, or are taking Master’s level coursework toward special education or BCBA certification. We have seven BCBAs, five BCaBAs, and fifty-five Registered Behavior Therapists on staff. 

Academically, ECAC serves students from Pre-k through grade two. We offer both Speech and Occupational therapy on-site as a service to all of our families. Speech therapy is provided by Magnolia Pediatric Therapy and Occupational therapy is provided by
Kidz Korner. The long-term goal of the ECAC is to grow into a stand-alone regional center for the education, and treatment of children with autism, and the support of their families.

ECAC utilizes a wide variety of programs and curriculums including PEAK, AIM, ACT, VB-Mapp, and Essentials for Living.
