Welcome to BCOTB

As the first and longest-running ABA clinic in the Tampa area, BCOTB has had the honor of helping hundreds of families navigate an Autism diagnosis and treatment.

We know the early stages of a diagnosis can be scary and confusing — but we also know there are proven methods that can lead to wonderful outcomes for kids and families.

Founded in 2003, we’re proud to use our extensive and ever-expanding experience, expertise, and education in ABA Therapy to help kids build the skills and self-confidence they need to reach their full potential.

Kelley Prince

Our Founder & History

In 1998, Kelley Prince began providing behavioral therapy services for a 4-year-old child with ASD while studying Psychology at the University of South Florida. She was amazed by the benefits the therapy had to offer and immediately knew she wanted to learn more about how she could help other children and their families. Because of that passion, Kelley opened BCOTB in 2003 and graduated with a Master’s in ABA in 2005.
