About NOVA ABA


NOVA ABA provides behavioral services for children, adolescents, and adults. Our mission is to improve quality of life by teaching skills and reducing problematic behaviors. Our staff is experienced in working with individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, ODD, OCD, and anxiety. We also work with individuals who do not currently have a diagnosis.

All of our services are based in the evidence-based practice of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). We use data-driven analysis to create interventions for developing generalizable, lasting, and meaningful change.

NOVA ABA is an approved practicum site for students at George Mason University.

We are currently in-network with Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Optima/Sentara, and Tricare. We also provide out-of-network and self-pay services.

Our service area includes Washington, DC. and Northern Virginia, including the following counties and surrounding areas: Fairfax, Prince William, Arlington, Loudoun. We also provide virtual telehealth services through a secure, HIPAA-compliant platform. Our staff is fluent in English, Russian, and Spanish.
