Who are we? What we do?

AIM - Autism In Motion was founded in 2017 by Gennie Tucker, BCBA, LCSW. Gennie is the parent of a child diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. At AIM, we prepare our clients to reach and achieve a future of success and independence. We provide results-oriented Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services to children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and related conditions. At AIM, we desire to partner with each family and client to build a program tailored to improving the quality of life for the entire family.

We strive to provide quality, evidenced based treatment, tailored to meet each child’s individual needs. We emphasize positive behavior strategies to increase appropriate behaviors such as communication, cognitive skills, social skills, motor skills, and self-help skills, while decreasing maladaptive behaviors that interfere with a child's everyday life such as tantrums, aggression, self-injury, and repetitive behaviors.

Our Mission

Our mission at Autism in Motion (AIM) is to provide individualized high quality services designed to help children with Autism Spectrum Disorder improve their lives. We foster an environment to prepare our clients for a future of independence and success by using evidence based treatment and data driven methods.
