Learn about the individuals we serve
Hybridge Learning Group treats individuals with autism spectrum disorders and related diagnoses. Individuals are able to receive services as early as 18 months of age when diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. We continue to work with children, teens and adults through age 21. Utilizing ABA principles and strategies “away from the table” and during naturally occurring moments helps achieve the maximum desired results.
We serve individuals diagnosed with ASD, including:
- Autistic Disorder
- Asperger’s Syndrome
We work with learners who present with a variety of conditions, including, but not limited to:
- Communication deficits
- Developmental delays
- Feeding deficits and food selectivity
- Maladaptive behaviors and related disorders
- Social skills and social communication deficits
Please note that families looking to have ABA services funded through their insurance company (in the state of NJ) are required to receive a diagnosis of an autism spectrum disorder from a physician or doctorate-level clinician. Families may also be required to provide a letter from the physician or doctorate-level clinician stating medical necessity for ABA services.
This is where we come in! HLG is happy to navigate you through the process. We can confirm eligibility and benefits and work directly with your insurance company for seamless access to benefits. Let us do the heavy lifting!
“A special thanks to you (Nicole Gardner, Behavior Therapist and BCBA Candidate) for your hard work, dedication & continuous effort & thanks to May (Beaubrun, BCBA) & Heather (Epstein, BCBA), too.
I must say that credit goes to him as well. It is him who is trying hard to understand and form sentences. We are all trying hard and putting our continuous effort but it’s him who is improving day by day. Credits to him. I see and also spoke to Nicole many times on how his understanding and language is improving day by day .
We were in Central Park last Sunday and we were very happy; he did follow direction, his behavior was just perfect and (he) identified all objects. He also tried to make sentences. Eighty percent of time he identified correct objects. It was such a happy moment for us to see him progressing.”

The HLG Difference
We know there are a number of providers who offer ABA services and the task of choosing the right one can be daunting. After all, when it comes to educating and supporting your child, every parent wants the absolute best.
At HLG, we pride ourselves on having well-rounded, expert board certified behavior analysts (BCBAs) that supervise and coordinate all programs. Under the direction of our clinical director, May Beaubrun, our BCBAs stay up-to-date with the latest research outcomes so we remain at the cutting edge of any advances in the field. Our behavior technicians, who directly carry out programming, receive ongoing training from our supervision staff so the information disseminated can be applied quickly and effectively. All staff members undergo regular supervision checks and must maintain a predetermined level of performance to continue working with our learners.
But the biggest difference that sets HLG apart is our ability to listen to you as a parent. While we are the experts behind the science of behavior, you are the expert on your child. We rely on you, as a parent, to be a collaborative member of the team. We want your feedback regarding goals, programming and progress. Our approach is not to walk into your home with an immediate list of dos and don’ts. Rather, we want to observe your routine and figure out how to help seamlessly integrate ABA-based principles into what already happens in the home. We believe parents are more apt to “buy-in” to a program that does not flip their livelihood upside down unnecessarily.
Give us a call and ask to speak to families with whom we currently work. There is no better advice than that given from a fellow parent.

School districts, like individual families, only want the best for their learners. The difficult aspect to working in a school setting is the amount of confounding variables across a school day. At HLG, we understand the uniqueness of working with learners with special needs in a school setting. Whether it be in a special education classroom or a general education classroom, our BCBAs and consultants are experienced helping educators get the most out of their learners.
The difference that HLG brings is that our school district BCBAs were all former teachers. They know the nuances of a classroom. They know how to get the most out of a little. Our school district BCBAs are efficient, effective and knowledgeable. What you won’t get is a consultant who disregards a teacher’s natural talents and efforts. We work with the educators to enhance their strengths and develop an areas of deficit. We work extremely hard to seamlessly integrate ABA practices and principles into an educator’s standing routine. But, if a routine needs to be modified, it is done on a collaborative basis.
Pair these efforts with years of experience working in the classroom and you have a formula for success!
