BGF Children’s Therapy is Chicago’s premier ABA Therapy provider. Established in 1999 as BGF Performance Systems, an external partner to public schools, our behavior analysts oversaw the training and implementation of Applied Behavior Analysis in special education and mainstreaming classrooms in schools and districts nationwide. During that time, we published 11 textbooks applying the principles of behavior analysis to language and academic skill acquisition. With the passing of Public Act 95-1005 in 2009, which required that insurance cover ABA Therapy for individuals with autism, BGF expanded to provide ABA Therapy in the home, establishing BGF Children’s Therapy. As a practicum site for several local ABA training programs, we have assembled an exemplary team of behavior analysts and therapists. Our founder, Brad Frieswyk, has almost 30 years of experience working in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis. Our Clinical Director, Nicole Cissell, has 15 years of experience specializing in ABA Therapy. You will not find more experienced practice in the Chicagoland area.
