• Our Story


    When my son, Jake, was diagnosed with autism at three, it felt like the end of the world. I read as many books as I could get my hands on and did as much research as I could. In 2012, all the books seemed dismal, all proposing such varied theories and “cures.”

    After two weeks of what I like to call “the mourning period,” I pledged to myself and my son that above all else, I would smother him with love. After embracing Jake’s diagnosis, things progressed quickly from there. People seemed to almost fall into our world and changed everything. I call them my autism angels.

    A family friend introduced us to applied behavior analysis (ABA). I hadn’t heard anything about it at the time, and it seemed overwhelming to have a stranger in my home every day.

    Then I met a woman who changed Jake’s life forever: His first teacher who has been with him now for over five years and is both family to us and an intricate part of my agency. Soon after, I met another loving and dedicated angel, who has also been with us for five years.

    Jake is now in a mainstream classroom and engages with me in conversation as if he had never even been diagnosed with autism. Every night when he says, “Mommy, I love you,” I sincerely thank God.

    I have been blessed to have my son surrounded by loving and dedicated people, and being able to give families the same hope means the world to me. The Ross Therapy Group isn’t just a business to me; it’s my world and my heart.

About Practice

When Kristen Ross’s son, Jake, was diagnosed with autism at age 3, she felt like her world was ending. Fast forward to today, and she now runs Ross Therapy Group, an agency located in Scotch Plains, New Jersey that matches families with a board-certified behavior analyst who can help their autistic child go on to lead meaningful, fulfilling lives.

If your child was recently diagnosed with autism, you may feel anxious about the future and overwhelmed by the number of choices when it comes to your next steps. We understand that mix of emotion because we’ve been there before.

The most important thing to remember is that although an autism diagnosis might seem like the closing of some doors, it opens a door for new beginnings. With the right support, raising a child with autism can be incredibly rewarding for you, your child, and your entire family.

The team at Ross Therapy Group is committed to meeting you and your child exactly where you are in the process of adjusting to life with autism and helping you navigate the path ahead. We believe that applied behavior analysis (ABA) is the most effective way to achieve measurable improvements in daily skills and behaviors.

That belief is backed by a growing body of research that promotes ABA as the only verifiably effective treatment option for kids with autism. In fact, the approach is so highly regarded that it’s the single type of autism therapy currently covered by most insurance plans.

On the subject of insurance, you should rest assured that we are here to confirm that your child receives the highest possible level of care, regardless of cost considerations. Our team works with your insurance provider to make sure the necessary paperwork is in place. None of our families pay for services out-of-pocket.

Our dedication to individualized care is evident in the customized treatment plan your child receives. It’s also demonstrated by the open access to team members, including the cell phone number of Kristen Ross, the director of Ross Therapy Group. If you have questions or encounter any challenges concerning your child’s therapy, we’re here to help.

We understand that adjusting to an autism diagnosis can be a painful process, and we encourage you to contact Ross Therapy Group to set up a time to sit down and talk about your unique set of needs. We are proud of the services we provide to families living in New Jersey, and we hope to welcome you and your child into the Ross Therapy family.
