Strong Foundations moves into new facility

Organization provides therapy for autism and similar disorders

Posted

FLEMING ISLAND – Strong Foundations Behavior Services, LLC, a local organization that provides Applied Behavior Analysis therapy services to adults and children diagnosed with autism spectrum and similar disorders, will open its new, 10,000-square-foot facility on Fleming Island last Monday, Nov. 15.

This is the first facility that Strong Foundations has exclusively owned, designed, and built to address the specific therapy needs of the individuals it serves, which was made possible with financing by 121 Financial Credit Union. The demand for Strong Foundations’ services has grown significantly during the past few years, necessitating an expansion and a more customized facility for ABA therapy services.

“Due to our rapid growth over the last several years, we have outgrown our leased space on three separate occasions since coming to the Fleming Island area,” said Karma Flotkoetter, one of Strong Foundations’ three founders. “Being able to construct our own building to better suit our needs was not only a necessity but also the fulfillment of a dream of ours to be able to better serve our children and families. Constructing our own building enables us to continue to provide quality and ethical services to our clients and their families and allow for future growth.”

The organization currently serves 50 individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders and other disabilities who demonstrate skills deficits in the areas of communication, adaptive, daily living, and social skills and/or display problematic behaviors that impede their daily functioning.

Strong Foundations’ team of 35 professionals work to reduce problem behaviors while teaching new skills to help improve individuals’ quality of life.

Strong Foundations was initially comprised of only the three founders who provided services in a handful of clients’ homes. With growing interest in their services, the founders began renting a small room from a chiropractic office in Middleburg, followed by the need to hire a few direct care staff. In May 2017, the founders leased a larger space in Fleming Island, and have continued to grow since that time.

Strong Foundations’ new facility is located at 2377 Market Dr.
