First Children Services provides behavioral support services for public school districts, regional day schools, and charter schools throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania.  We employ over fifty board certified behavior analysts (BCBAs) who are experienced in working in the school, clinic, and home settings.  All of our staff are supervised and undergo intensive training and continuing education on an ongoing basis.

First Children Services is a  New Jersey Department of Education Approved Clinic and Agency for child study team and independent evaluations, counseling, home instruction, and behavior therapy.  First Children utilizes a full scale clinical management software across the organization.  As a partner of First Children, our school district clients have access to reports, outcomes, and other pertinent data on a real time basis.
