About Manhattan A and J Behavioral Health
Manhattan A and J Behavioral Health was created to serve the families that need the most help! We understand that having a child with a developmental disability is a challenge and a blessing. We are here to help your child grow and prosper as you envision! We provide Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) based therapy for children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder and other similar developmental disabilities. We understand your struggles and that is why our programs are individualized to your family’s needs. We are here to help guide you every step of the way! Teaching you how to help your child in your home/community is our joy! Manhattan A and J Behavioral Health also offers private classes for new parents on several topics that include, but are not limited to, sleep training, behavioral issues, toilet training, anxiety reduction for parents/caregivers, and teaching language acquisition in the natural environment.
We accept nearly all health insurance companies for payment serving the greater NY area! Additionally, soon we will be serving children in the Committee for Preschool Education program (CPSE program, 3 to 5 year olds) and Committee for Special Education program (CSE program, 5 to 21 years olds). Please call to schedule your free advisory appointment. We are here to help!
At Manhattan A and J Behavioral Health we believe:
1) Every child is unique, and therefore the strategies we use to help each child and their family is individualized.
2) Learning is fun and should not feel like work at a young age! We make every child feel special as they are learning and prospering with the family.
3) Skills taught must be functional for the child and family.
4) Teaching in the child’s natural environment with the family as a team promotes generalization (true learning) for the child and the family.
5) Manhattan A and J Behavioral Health works with children of all ages and conducts psychological evaluations for diagnosis, if the parent requests. At Manhattan A and J Behavioral Health, we believe learning is limitless like your child.
At Manhattan A and J Behavioral Health we use a team approach to therapy. We know that every family’s needs may be different; therefore, we use our experience of over 15 years as behavior analysts and provide the best professional direction and guidance while working collaboratively with you, the family. Our ultimate goal is to better your child’s life and yours.

My wife and I were going from pediatrician to neurologist to psychologist and we had no answers on how to help our youngest daughter. All Of the supposed doctors said “there is nothing wrong with her” but my wife and I knew better. Once we called A and J we realized they were pediatric child specialists that could help us. Pediatricians are only interested in passing you on to a neurologist who truly doesn’t know anything about mental health. They wanted to put our daughter on medication and we couldnt figure out why since she was not aggressive. We refused to put her on medication since she didn’t need it. The neurologist just said this medication will make her less anxious. I wasn’t sure she was anxious or just didn’t know how to behave or function in society. Since starting with A and J a couple of months ago we have seen a dramatic improvement. The Senior staff is helping educate and train us as well to help her on a daily basis. She is starting to interact more and seems happier. Thank you so much :))
Best caring services!!!
Great people! They handled and addressed all of my insurance related items, then listened carefully during the assessment process, and gave my child a very caring and great family trainer. I could not be happier. My child is now talking and following directions!!!
As a young mother of 2 young boys I knew in my heart they were not developing typically. I know I needed help. Therefore, I reached out to my neighborhood company that said they could help. My phone call to the director at A and J Behavioral Health was the best phone call I could have made for my family. The boys are getting daily help from the caring and dedicated therapists at A and J Behavioral Health paid for my health insurance. Thank you A and J Behavioral Health!!
The Best Agency
My daughter was having issues with her social and communication from an early age, but I ignored the issues as everyone told me she would grow out of it. Finally when I realized 2 years passed and she did not improve I called my insurance company and they recommended A and J Behavioral Health. It was the best phone call I have ever made. My daughter is doing much better now because of my BCBA and the therapist from A and J Behavioral Health!!
