Gem City Behavioral Solutions

Gem City Behavioral Solutions provides high-quality and individualized behavioral services for children and adolescents. We specialize in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and have experience working with children who have developmental disabilities. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for every family we work with. Our therapists are committed to providing the best service possible.

Our founders have 17+ years of experience between them. They saw a growing need for high-quality behavioral services in the Dayton area and founded Gem City Behavioral Solutions. Giving back to the community is also important to them. One is a volunteer trainer raising future service dogs through 4 Paws for Ability, and the other has over 100 volunteer hours for various organizations across the region. They hope to be able to give back to their community in a bigger way though Gem City Behavioral Solutions.
