We’re Here for You

Even if you are just beginning your family’s journey with autism, you probably already know someone who has it. According to the Centers for Disease Control, 1 in every 36 American children has an autism diagnosis. Hummingbird ABA Therapy was founded to help families just like yours.

Julie Angstadt is the owner and clinical director of Hummingbird ABA Therapy. She is a board certified behavior analyst (BCBA), a licensed behavior specialist (LBS), and an international behavior analyst (IBA).

She has worked with children and adults with special needs in classrooms, psych rehab programs, ABA centers, and in their home/community settings.

She has presented at national conferences on topics related to neurodiversity affirming practices and parent needs. She is passionate about advocacy and ethical treatment modalities and she is a firm believer in following children's lead as they learn.

ABA Supervisors

ABA Supervisors are licensed, master's, or doctorate-level providers trained in the science of Applied Behavior Analysis. These providers complete ABA Assessments, including standardized and evidence-based ABA assessment measures and Functional Behavior Assessments, determine the clinical needs based on their assessments, develop the Individual Treatment Plan (ITP), oversee and supervise the ABA therapy of their clients, meet at least monthly with parents/caregivers to review progress and needs, and conduct caregiver training to ensure consistency across settings, and review and analyze the data and progress for their clients.
