Autism Intervention Center Opens Second Location in Frisco

By Alex Edwards |

After operating in Plano for nearly two decades, The Behavior Exchange, an early autism intervention center, has opened a new, 7,500-square-foot facility in Frisco. Founder and Executive Director Tammy Cline-Soza says with so many businesses moving north, they wanted to expand to fit the growing demand there.

“We wanted to really build a state-of-the-art facility to serve families,” she says. “We’ve been in Plano for a long time and we’ve outgrown the space there.”

The Behavior Exchange provides applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy for children on the autism spectrum, which is intended to promote productivity by reducing distracting behaviors. The new location was designed to create a welcoming environment that Cline-Soza says is open and bright with a lot of natural lighting.

“We’ve only been open for a couple of weeks, but it’s really working like we intended it to,” she says. “Being a service for children with autism, we’re only as good as our staff members, and they are really loving the new location. We want to set a standard not only for the services we provide, but also how we care for our employees.”

The center works primarily with children ages 2-12, and also provides parent training and school consultations. Cline-Soza says there are plans to continue growing, and because it’s family owned and operated, everything has been reinvested back into the business. For now, Frisco will be the showcase and flagship location.

“We would like to be in other areas of the metroplex so that families can have a convenient option for where to take their kids,” Cline-Soza says. “It’s really been like our family mission to make this the best it can be.”
