How did we get started?

Turning Point Autism Centers was founded by Erica Kinnebrew, BCBA in Annapolis, Maryland in 2012. Beginning as a small company, providing ABA therapy to just a handful of clients, Turning Point now has ABA clinics in Severna Park, Crofton, Annapolis, Upper Marlboro, Odenton, Frederick and Lanham.

As our company has grown, our goal remains the same: to provide the most effective behavior analytic therapy for children on the autism spectrum in a joyful, respectful, caring, and playful environment. We have purposefully created environments to capture opportunities for all children to learn and grow, providing a foundation that allows us to provide more effective ABA therapy where we can most efficiently address the needs of children with autism. 

“Choose a job you love, and you will never work a day in your life.” It may sound cliché but walk into a Turning Point clinic and you will know that none of us are working! We love what we do. We respect and care for our clients, their families, and each other. We find joy in every accomplishment as we play right alongside your child! 

Our Mission

To provide the most effective behavior analytic services for the children and families we serve in a joyful, respectful, caring, and playful environment.
