Buddies4Life (B4L) and Buddies Behavioral Services (BBS) Founders, Andrew and Tresa Brinton, raised three children with Autism. They have an inspiring story to share of the transformative power of ABA Therapy. Their journey began when they saw their own son, Luke, a non-verbal and destructive 3-year-old, not only graduate from high school but also attend college and hold a full-time job.

Motivated by this life-changing experience, the founders felt compelled to give back and make a positive impact in the lives of others facing similar challenges. See them in the News

Buddies Behavioral Services, LLC was born out of a vision to be a superhero for families navigating the complexities of Autism.

Our journey started with a mind-blowing personal experience that highlighted the power of perseverance and unwavering dedication.

As we witnessed our own son, Luke, diagnosed with Autism at the age of 3, faced tremendous challenges like speech difficulties, temper tantrums, and destructive behaviors causing thousands of dollars in damages, we realized the urgent need for ABA Therapy.

In 2004, we organized an epic Fundraiser and raised $23,000 to ensure Luke could receive Behavioral Services. Luke underwent 5 years of ABA therapy, starting with simple tasks like placing his feet on a wooden box, putting his hands on his legs, and responding to his name when spoken for a goldfish. (Initially, he wouldn't even respond to his name!)

With the dedication and love of our ABA therapists, Luke's behaviors gradually transformed. Despite facing setbacks and destructive behaviors along the way, Luke not only played football and wrestled but also graduated from high school, enrolled in college, and now drives to work!
