Evidence Based
We are a science-based organization dedicated to disseminating research from the field of behavior analysis and popularizing them in new languages, cultures and institutions. We pilot innovative educational technologies and share the results within the scientific community. We translates learning problems into research questions and collaborates with institutions interested in the development of experimental designs which scopes of inquiry are education, pedagogical practices, and behavioral interventions.
All case managers hold advanced degrees in psychology or education and board certification as behavior analysts. All other therapists hold credentials as Registered Behavior Technicians.
ABA is designed for all types of learners regardless of their developmental levels. ABA is not one-size-fits-all. Instead, therapists design individualized programs, implemented one-on-one. Students with learning or developmental disabilities acquire essential milestones that will support their growth, students with challenging behaviors benefit from interventions that reduce the negative impact these behaviors have on their educational process, while advanced students accelerate their talents and reach greater learning independence
Our staff have training with diverse disabilities like Autism across the lifespan.  We will design programs for Language, Social Skills, Play, Problem Behavior, Feeding, Sleeping, Vocational Skills, and Academics.
Family Focused
Our priorities are motivated by family feedback. Our progress is accelerated by family participation in treatment.
We provide both OT and SLP in-house. We work with parents, educators, related service providers, medical professionals, members of community agencies and entire public and private educational establishments.

ABA Our Way

Teaching Tree Clinic was founded as a one-person operation in 2014 by Veneta Dimitrova. Since then, it has grown into the largest employer of behavior analysts in Germany, expanded its in-house services to include occupational and speech therapy, and sown the seeds for the foundation of multiple independent ABA providers.

In 2021, Teaching Tree Clinic reorganized as Ausblick Therapie GmbH. In this new chapter, we remain committed to sustainably growing our core operations by:

  • adding to our team so we can fully serve current clients
  • opening physical locations in the Frankfurt-Mainz-Wiesbaden and Bavaria regions where we currently provide in-home, in-school, and in-community services
  • expanding in-home, in-school, and in-community services to from Munich to Stuttgart to Strasbourg, France
  • establishing contracts with local cities to increase access to European citizens

Occupational Therapy

Pediatric occupational therapy helps children (ages birth-16) strengthen the skills of fine motor, sensory motor, sensory processing, visual motor, bilateral coordination, and oral motor skills in order to increase their independence in school and Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) such as grooming, eating, playing, sleeping, toileting, dressing, and functional mobility. Occupational therapists look at a child holistically to determine how we can use their available strengths to promote improvement in areas of deficit. In the event that minimal progress is made in a certain area or is impeded by physical/external factors, we assess how these deficits negatively impact your child and family on a personal level and work to make accommodations and adaptations to fit those individual needs.

Children may benefit from occupational therapy due to a medical diagnosis or developmental delay such as (but not limited to) birth injuries/defects, chronic illnesses, sensory processing disorders, traumatic brain/spinal cord injuries, genetic disorders, learning disabilities, autism, behavioral problems, post surgicals conditions, spina bifida, and cerebral palsy.

Occupational therapy sessions often look like play, because it is through play that children learn. Activities are developed to target specific skills and learning objectives without feeling like work. Some skills do require some time where “boring” activities are required, but we strive to alternate with fun, enjoyable activities in order to keep up motivation, because motivation is the key to a child’s success!
