ABA Positive Support Services is a company built from the ground up on excellent service delivery. Catherine Wilson was one of 3 board certified behavior analysts when she came to the state in 1997. She established the Hawaii Association of Behavior Analyst with two colleagues. Catherine worked for one of the leading behavioral companies as a senior consultant and then began her own private practice in 2006. The success of the practice, additional insurance coverage of one to one providers and families of children with autism’s demand for her continued services, led Catherine to start ABA Positive Support Services in 2009. The company has maintained its small company feel and excellent throughout the years.
