How ACES Began by Their Founder, Kristin Farmer

ACES started as an idea by an innovative special education teacher, Kristin Farmer, in 1996. Kristin built a model autism classroom using environmental arrangement, clear visual structure, and child-friendly spaces where behavioral expectations and learning targets were consistent and clearly communicated to students.

After seeing progress in the children during their school days, she knew they could further benefit from similar support in their natural environments. Her dream was to teach those close to them how to arrange their environment and their own behavior to maximize her students’ potential and to thrive in all areas of their lives. Her motivation to attain results put her at the forefront of the services we now know as center-based and in-home ABA.

Supporting these families and children in and out of the classroom became Kristin’s purpose, and ACES was born.
