Helping Children Reach Their Potential


Jessica DeanWhether your child is diagnosed with autism or a related disability, we can help. At Achieve, we provide quality Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services to create meaningful changes in behavior. We believe that giving a child an effective way to communicate is the first key to success.

Using evidence-based interventions and B.F. Skinner’s analysis of verbal behavior, we can assess your child’s current abilities and develop individualized teaching programs. Provision of consultation, direct services and training for family and educators allows us to find the best strategies to help each child make progress.

Our services are designed to assess your child’s skills and provide training in the setting where their learning will occur. While each child’s program is unique, common goals include increasing communication, socialization, play skills, and academic performance as well as reduction of maladaptive behaviors.

We believe every child has the right to individualized and effective treatment.

Located in Athens, Georgia, we are able to provide direct therapy and consultative services to those in Athens-Clarke and surrounding Georgia counties as well as Central Florida. Additionally, consultative services are provided throughout the United States and abroad.

Achieve is led by Jessica Dean, M.S., BCBA. She began providing ABA services to children and adolescents with autism in 1998. As a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, she feels it is essential to not only help those with special needs but to provide quality supervision for those seeking certification. She has received extensive education and hands-on training on the principles of ABA, as well as the implementation of assessment, training, and teaching of both children with autism and those responsible for teaching these children. She possesses a passion for continuing to advance the effective teaching procedures used to help children achieve their potential and have the best possible quality of life.
